My 5 year old next door neighbor came over to visit Truman (our lizard) and informed me in no uncertain terms that the monkey was indeed on a horse and not a deer! I told her it was a deer and she proclaimed, "That is a horse"! I replied, "OK, maybe it is a deer-horse". She said, "No, It is a horse"! So it shall be, you don't mess with a 5 year old girl!
The rest of the animals are coming along slowly. Each day they come to life a bit more and I get to know them better. It is much like any other relationship. The more risk I take in getting to know them the more they reveal to me.
