Tanglewood Farm — The Town of Miniature Farm Animals

A couple of weekends ago I did a family photo shoot at Tanglewood Farm in Canton, GA.
I was prepared for a typical petting zoo, which is, in my experience, an overwhelming number of 
zealous animals up in your face begging for food.
Sooooooooo not the case with Tanglewood Farm.
Unless I missed an option at the check-in station, I didn't see anyone feeding animals.
Instead, there are brushes everywhere to brush the animals. 
The animals are calm and approachable, adoring the affection of little hands 
and brushes massaging their heads and backs. Uber cute.
In other words, there were no crying kids holding onto their parents' necks for 
dear life because of scary, aggressive four-legged beggars.
These are animals you want to put into your pocketbook and take home
to snuggle with.

This is a miniature animal petting zoo. Need I say more.
Miniature African Pygmy Goats.
Miniature Babydoll Sheep.
Miniature Cows.
Miniature Horses.
Miniature Alpacas.
Miniature Manx Cats.
Miniature Potbellied Pigs.
Miniature Donkeys.
Even a Miniature Bison.

There are pony rides, a mini pioneer village, panning for gold and arrowheads.
And the couple who run the place are just about the sweetest two you'd ever want to meet.
The place is clean and well-run, and it's obvious that the animals are loved and taken good care of.

A must-visit. We were there for over 2 hours; so much to see and do.

My pictures here didn't capture all the cuteness, as I was focusing on photographing the family :-)
(And obviously, the cat captured my attention.)

NOTE: After your visit to Tanglewood Farm, stop by the Frosty Frog Creamery & Cafe for lunch.
At the recommendation of the Farm owners, I went, and it was the best quiche and ice cream
I've ever put in my mouth.

And next door to the Cafe is Three Sisters Gifts & Home Decor; bought me a bunch of stocking stuffers, all gift-wrapped, adorably, for free.

Oh boy that last photo of the kitty is so beautiful! I could spend all day in a petting zoo especially if they are all tiny :)

Dawn, thank you so much for the beautiful vintage paper! I just got back from London yesterday and it was a pleasant surprise to find in the mail :) I'll treasure it and put it to good use.
