That's a tough one Ryan. I don't know if I've been around enough farm animals to decide.
As you know, I'm getting goats soon...... and really looking forward to it. I think baby goats are about the cutest things ever! I love the noises they make, and goats definately have a different kind of personality.

But one farm animal I have a lot of respect for is a mule. They can be stubborn, but I found that every time the one's I dealt with got stubborn, it was for a very good reason. Mules never do anything stupid or without reason. I used mules when doing volunteer work for the wyoming forest services as a kid, and they amazed me. They were slow, but that was ok because they never got lost. They could SMELL the trail that the horses had let. We were in the middle of nowhere (just me at 17 and two mules) - no marked trail - the mules got left behind because of slowness - and those mules used there noses to follow the horses. Also, they were the last to cross a creek. The horses would just trod right on, stumbling over rocks in the water. Nearly falling on their faces or breaking a leg. But the mules waited until the water was clear of cloudy mud, and actually looked where they put their feet. Each step was that way, but it made me feel confident that I was on a smart animal that would keep me safe.

It's hard to chose just one. I like my tree toads a lot and find them in some strange places at times, such as inside theis PVC tube there are 3.



On this oil bottle funnel I has setting beside the barn.



Of course my honey bees.



The white tail deer, makes country life pleasant too.

Just so many to chose from.

Like this life worn butterfly.



The puppies who have a ready smile all the time.



The heron that wades the pond and creek looking for a meal.



And the humming birds.




If you can chose a favorite your a much better person than I.

The only creature I can "FARM" here are Night Crawlers and an occasional walking stick (which are really cool - just finding one is a treat) but the worms are very abundant in the Spring and Fall and cooler Summer nights here.

Had an ant farm once but the cottom picking things got rambuncs and broke out. All attempts to round them up failed, seems the horses kept stepping on em and the ropes just wouldn't hold em either.
YEHA.

goats are a very multi purpose animal, that is why I like them. Pbob is they are foragers, not grazers. Thus they rather eat old leaves, tree bark, and hay rather grass.

 cry some I havn't gotten posted yet. Like the humming bird pictures. We had computer troubles about the time I took them.
 Cool I like the humming bird pictures because they are so hard to get to stay in one spot for a picture. I also like the herons for the same reason. The deer are great but come so close to the house they are eaiser.

I would have to say goats, especially alpine goats. goat milk fudge and homemade cheeses are a big plus.

Goat milk is so easy to digest too. If you cant have cows milk maybe you should try goats, that is what my sisters friend had to do. I like the goat milk cheese on my tacos and we make the fudge in the winter. Bye Cheesy

I'd send a picture of my Mammoth donkey if I knew how, but don't.   She is 2 and a half years old and is 15.2 hands tall.    she is a dandy and just like a puppy when it comes to wanting attention.
