Has Anyone Seen My Mom?

Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

This was taken right up the street from my house in Orange County in the Hudson Valley.  As many of you know there is a farm right near me with animals that are retired from the circus and others that are used in movies. 

It gives me such pleasure to drive by there because I never know what I will see.  This particular day I got to see one of my favorites.  He/she is usually so far away I can't get a decent picture.   Several times a year if I am lucky he/she will come up within a few hundred feet of the road and I can get a beauty of a shot like this.  Wouldn't you like one of these for a pet?

Hi Debra,

He is beautiful and looks very well cared for. I wonder if he is enjoying his retirement or misses the excitment of the circus. Great shot!

What a lucky lady you are to be able to see these wonderful creatures up front and up close like that.  I would love to pet a zebra.  We used to have a domain name called Zbuzz, and the logo was 2 Zebras intertwined, sort of like the two of us.  We gave up the domain, and kept the logo.  Thanks again for this wonderful shot.

Thank you for all of your kind comments.  No this is not a place for touring.  It is not open to the public.  However when driving by there are all kinds of opportunities!
