I went to Mobile, Alabama, last week to see my cousin Becca graduate with her nursing degree.
While I was there, I was able to visit her farm. Becca has a potbellied pig named Penelope. The pig was a bit grouchy, but I did get to pet her for a little while. Her hair is really bristly and tough. It hurts if you pet her against the fur.
Becca also had a donkey named Timothy. The donkey was a bit nervous, but friendly. I was able to pet and hand feed the donkey. However, he ran away when I laughed.
In the house Becca has an aquarium with an albino frog. The frog was under water, so I decided to reach into the aquarium and touch the frog. It jumped so fast that it scared me. I jerked my hand out of the aquarium and screamed like a little girl. Becca thought the whole thing was funny, but it was a little embarrassing.
I had a great time visiting Pate Farm.
