Important Info
Please be aware of the latest threat to animals in Florida.
Creeping Indigo is growing everywhere. It is deadly to horses, goats, rabbits
and most other animals. It hides out under the grass that is already there and
is very hard to kill. Please check your yard where our horses and other animals
will be. If you would like more info on it, go to facebook and look up Nina's
Warriors. We are fighting to get Florida to do something about killing this plant.
If you find it growing on the sidewalk or along the easement at your home, call the
city and the county and complain about a toxic plant growing on their property and
making it's way to your property. Once you start looking for it you will see lots of
it growing around parking lots, parks, libraries and other county and city areas.

Update on "Cash"
In researching COPD I found a product that is not offered in the United States
but after reading about it I called my vet and read it all to him. He felt the
same way that I did - this might actually cure it. Normal COPD is given 6 scoops
twice per day for 7 days and chronic COPD is given the same amount for 3 weeks.
The stuff is expensive, $113 for the 7 day treatment.
On the 3rd day "Cash" was no longer breathing as hard, he had more energy and was
talking to me whenever I went outside. It's been 2 weeks now and "Cash" is showing
no signs of distress with the COPD. Now we wait and see if it comes back.

The Vet Tech at the Office is wonderful. I told them the only place I could find
the product was in Australia but only a vet could purchase it. It took her 3 weeks
to do everything needed to order it. I love the Office Staff.

The Story of the Sand Dollar

There's a pretty little legend
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in the lowly shell.

If you examine closely,
You will see that you find here
Four nail holes and a fifth one
Made by a Roman's spear.

On one side the Easter Lily,
In it's center is the star
That appeared unto the Shepherds
And led them from afar.

The Christmas Poinsetta,
Etched on the other side
Reminds us of His birthday,
Our happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open,
And here you will release
The five white doves awaiting
To spread goodwill and peace.

This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me
To help us spread his Gospel
Through all Eternity.

About USDA Licensing for a Petting Zoo
This is a "Class C" Exhibitor License.
You are licensed by the number of animals owned, held or exhibited.
For a traveling exhibitor you count the animals exhibited and the ones left behind.

Example: Last year we were only taking out 1 truck and trailer. For our Petting Zoo we
had 1 rabbit, 1 pig and 2 goats to claim (although we only took 1 goat to a party at a time).
Since my daughter will occasionally be taking out a truck and trailer this year we will be
claiming 2 rabbits, 2 pigs and 2 goats (one for each of us, even if only one of us goes out).
Ducks, Chickens, Reptiles, Horses and Donkeys are not under USDA regulations.

USDA allows 1 to 5 animals, 6 to 25 animals and so on. Last year we only had to claim
the smallest. This year we have to claim the 6 to 25 animals (which costs more).

If you don't claim the correct number of animals that you are using then your
USDA License is not valid because you lied to get a cheaper price.

Be sure to ask how many animals they use in their Petting Zoo and how many
of them are claimed on their license. If there is more than 1 truck and trailer going out to
parties and each one has petting zoo animals they may not be as legitimate as you are told.

Certificate of Insurance/Additional Insured
A Certificate of Insurance shows that the "Named Insured" actually has insurance.
Being added as "Additional Insured" you are actually given coverage and have rights
under the policy in the event of a claim, there is usually a premium due for this.

Holding a "Certificate of Insurance" is not an endorsement that others should use
your services. It only proves that you have done some type of event with them and
had to supply proof of insurance. It in no way proves that you are a good company.

The only thing that changes on a "Certificate of Insurance" is the name of the person,
company, city, school or other entity that is listed on the "Certificate."

You can verify anything I tell you about insurance as I held a Florida 2-20 Insurance
license for many years so I actually know how insurance works and don't just make up
something that may sound good for you. Call your own insurance agent to verify it.
