  • I have grown up with kids so I am very tame & friendly ... I love getting rubbed  & that kids come and see how I am.
  • We were born at Kiwi Valley farm so we're very friendly & love being hand fed, visited & rubbed by kids. Remember to bring your yummy food scraps for us when you come to lessons each week.
