    Thanks for the review and we hope you'll visit again soon when there is better weather! Many of the animals have been born from bottle-raised parents and they are extremely comfortable with people, so this is definitely one area that we feel sets us apart...More

    Family friendly guided tour through some beautiful hill country pastures. Plenty of animals to see and feed. Easy to find off 281 and close to Marble Falls or San Antonio. The petting zoo was also pretty neat and the kids enjoyed playing with the goats!
