Dik-Diks are African mini hoofers who run around the plains delighting everyone who sees them. I hadn’t noticed before, but they also have spectacular little Tapir-like schnozzles! Check it!

This steadfast young fellow’s a muskox calf,
His mama’s nearby, so best not point and laugh.
He lives in Alaska, on a farm up in Palmer,
Where the winters are cold but the summers are calmer.
His farm needs donations, that’s what Esther cautions,
For the muskox is hungry and eats such big portions.
So visit the site, toss some bucks in their box,
Then drive up this summer and meet a muskox!
Just a few pieces left to go…
I need a bit of pig for the upper right corner…
and then I’m missing some pig on the left side…
well, I guess it’s all pig, really.

Check out Stuart Little, a baby miniature horse practicing soccer, and… saaay, I just had an idea: What if there was a game, kinda like soccer, but it had horses in it, and they ran around a field knocking a ball back and forth?
Naaah, it’d never catch on.
And if we had a pool, Bridget W., we could play water polo!
People, if you’ve ever been to Africa, you’ve seen Dik-Diks running around, exuding cuteness of dangerous, deadleh levels. They’re part mini-deer, part partridge, all prosh. THEY GET THEIR NAME FROM THE SOUND THEY MAKE RUNNING FOR COVER OMG!

Baby New Year showed up a little early at the Niabi Zoo in Illinois, in the form of this wobbly new giraffe born December 27. The boy, about six feet, 150 pounds, was born a few days earlier than expected, but the little feller is doing just fine, and will greet the public when the zoo reopens next May. Until then, he’ll bond with Mom, and do lots of fun giraffe-type activities, such as running around, flicking his tail, eating hay, nibbling leaves on trees (well, the shorter trees, anyway), or maybe take up a nice hobby, like stamp collecting, which can be a rewarding way to pass the time during the long winter months, because you also learn the history behind each stamp. I recall I had a full set of 60’s-era state flag stamps as a boy; sadly, they were lost in a family move, but anyway…
