Living with a parrot is a big commitment. Parrots live a very long time. A parrot such as Einstein can live to be 50 or 60 years old. Many larger parrots like Macaws can live to be 100 years old. They all require a lot of care, proper nutrition, training, time and patience. Parrots need a lot of attention and lots of toys and activities to keep from being bored. Parrots are also expensive, a large cage is an investment and plenty of play perches to spend their out of cage time. Specialized veterinarian care is also required. Most of all they require your companionship and a forever home. Many people decide after the first few years of parrot ownership that the responsibility is too great and the parrots become neglected and sometimes abandoned. When that happens they are sent to parrot rescue facilities to be adopted by a new family or some spend their lives in sanctuaries. It is often said, "Having a parrot is much like raising a 2 or 3 year old child for the rest of your life!"

Clydesdale horses run free in meadow and roll with joy1m12s

Clydesdale horses run free in meadow and roll with joy

Horses are one of the most beautiful and majestic animals. To see them run at a gallop is a sight to behold. There is a beautiful farm near Peterborough, Ontario called The Mane Intent. It is home to a herd of magnificent and wonderful horses. They have come from different places and different lives, but they have all found their way here, and they have all found a new purpose and a higher calling. The horses here are all have very unique personalities and unique skills and they work magic with people who come here for a variety of reasons. Some come to learn about themselves, others to learn about teamwork and leadership. Some come to learn about communication. The herd at The Mane Intent also works with first-responders, veterans, and with people who have experienced trauma. These are people who come here to heal or to deal with their grief and emotions. The human/animal bond works wonders with people, especially those for whom trust is difficult. Horses are exceptionally perceptive and they also respond to and react to a person’s body language, breathing, mood, and subtle behaviors. They invite connection. The relationship created with a horse gives people the opportunity to look within themselves and to understand how they can connect with other people. These connections reassure those with trauma that opening up and forming relationships is safe. To watch these horses work their magic with people is awe inspiring. And to watch them run freely in their meadows under the warm sunshine is simply breath taking. These horses are enjoying a day of leisure and they have broken into a full gallop as they enter their lush, green pasture. As they slow at the top of the hill, Belle, a beautiful giant Clydesdale with ice-blue eyes stops and begins to roll among the flowers. She is experiencing true joy in the moment and her happiness is obvious. In fact, watching her, it’s easy to share her joy as she flings her hooves high in the air in delight.

Gorilla tries to figure out how to drink from bottle1m20s

Gorilla tries to figure out how to drink from bottle

The zoo staff threw lots of different bottles filled with juice over the wall into the habitat for the gorilla family to drink. Lope grabbed one of the bottles and is trying to open it with its teeth. First on the site and then he has a go at the lid, but he doesn’t notice that most of is leaking out now. He then grabs some food that was scattered on the grass earlier and walks to a shadier place. There he found a new bottle and has another go at it, but the same happens again. You can see the juice squirting out of the bottom of the bottle. Lope is not someone that gives up and tries again, third time lucky, with the orange bottle. He gives it his all, holding the bottle with his feet and hands and trying to turn the lid again and hey presto he manages to open it properly this time. He drinks out of the bottle like a pro and again does his human swagger and parades the bottles through the enclosure.
