Meet our friendly and beautiful animals at our Petting Zoo. Hug a kangaroo and SMILE!!
Tilly the smiley Wallaby
Welcome to Gramma Roses Petting Zoo. Here at our small Farm, you will meet petting animals with notably BIG personalities! It is our hope you will enjoy your visit, and that you will leave with a fresh appreciation of the goodness these animals "willingly" share with us humans. (Er, ahem, did someone say treats?).
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
Our kangaroos and wallabies are in a word "MAGICAL!" There is nothing quite like experiencing their gentle quiet personalities. A group of kangaroos and wallabies is called a MOB, and we are blessed to share our lives with them.
Willow the 10 month old Wallaby has a broken leg. In the end we lost her due to the pain medication causing ulcers in her tummy. Oh how we loved that trouncy little jewel. Oh, how we miss her!
Before she broke her leg she was such an active little bouncy "toy". So gentle. Playful. Friendly to everyone. Losing Willow was heartbreaking. If we only knew the pain meds were killing her. I miss her so much.
This is Willow the Wallaby on her first day in our lives. She took to bottle feeding quickly, and soon embraced all who met her. She was a jewel in so many ways.
The beauty and affectionate personality of this little wallaby cannot be said in words that clearly illustrate the magical presence she had in our lives. To share our lives with a macropod is unique for the reason that we care for them like a human baby. With wide open dark eyes, as their tiny hands rest upon our cheeks, they manage to radiate their trust and connection with us for protection. To have lost her to human error is unbelievably heartbreaking.
