I’m a Manatee county native, and I have seen many changes to this area. I’m a wife, and mother of five
children and nine grandchildren. I was raised on a farm where I interacted with all sorts of animals on
a daily basis. By the time I was 16 I was working full time on the farm. My past 34 + years include
working for some local Veterinarians, Cat and Dog boarding, Horse boarding facilities, as well as
dairy farms. I have owned cows, Chickens, Hogs, Geese, Ducks, Turkeys, Horses, Dogs, Cats, Birds
and Fish. So you can say that I have handled just about every type of domesticated animal there is,
with the exception of snakes, iguana’s and spiders, I have a fear of these animals, and when I
encounter one my natural instinct is to flee. So I’m a country girl as long as the country isn’t to rough.I would like to share with you some photos of my pets. These are pets from my past, and present.
