I hate to complain about a business, but my gosh this place is scary!!! I had never been there before and I saw a today deal on groupon for the petting zoo area of the stables. I thought that this sounded like a fun place to take my two and a half year old. When we got there, I couldn't even get out of my car without big ants swarming my feet and biting me. Then I did not even know where to go when I got there. I went through a gate and waited a while until a staff member showed up. I asked her where I should pay for my ticket since I had purchased a groupon vocher already for my son. She asked me for the voucher and told me to wait there. She took the voucher and went away for a while. Then a little girl came and asked me to give her money and sign a liability release. The staff member that I gave my groupon voucher to made the little girl ask me to pay for both my son and I even though the girl was only charging me for my fare initially. I paid the girl anyhow and did not dispute the fact that I shouldn't have had to double pay for my two year old as I had already paid for the groupon... Then the staff member took us in into the main petting zoo field and showed us around the place. then we were free to be on our own. I took my son back into the gate to the main petting zoo field and immediately I am swarmed by an angry sheep named Stuart and a pushy pig. The rest of the animals seemed fine. The sheep was mad at me for not petting it enough I guess so it began to ram me very hard from a full on run. I screamed, and it backed way up and rammed me again! It felt like a car hit me and I have bruises now. I was in fear for my young son so I grabbed him and carried him across the field to safety. The owner came out and apologized and said that stuart might have to be evicted from the petting zoo soon since he was aggressive. She blamed it on too many people petting its head. I told her I had to get my son out of there before he got hurt. If that sheep hit him he would have had serious injuries I am certain! It is a large sheep and very dense. So I took my son out to see the bunnies ( they were safe ). Eventually when Stuart was busy eating hay that the owner brought I took my son just past the gate to the field so we could get out quick if needed. I got my son and I in the fence ( just barely ) and a bully pig tried to push past me to get out of the fence. I tried to keep it in the fenced area while shooing my son out to safety once again and the damn pig got pissy and bit my leg! We left the farm since I feared for my son's safety there. Who has a petting zoo with evil animals anyway. The other issue I have with the farm is there is no sink with soap and water to wash properly. There were two randomly placed purel dispensers though. So, now my son is freaked out of pigs and sheep thanks to Morris's shadow stables petting zoo. And I am all bruised up from the damn sheep! We will definitely not be back.
