Hi I would just like to say thank you for the fantastic job Kate did Yesterday at our son Dylan's first birthday party. The kids loved all the little animals and they had so much fun holding and patting them. Kate was very patient and great with all the kids. I would truly recommend your service to everyone. And Dylan thanks you for providing his carrot and celery lunch! Thanks again Ann-Maree
Thank you so much for the wonderful weekend. I so appreciated all the organising and effort you put in to make me comfortable and to ensure I experienced as much of the business as I could in the small amount of time I had. Leonie and Rachael, you've done an exceptional job with your franchising efforts and business.
Please thank Sally and Jess for their guidance and patience and especially Luke for his entertainment value. I really felt like part of the team/family and hope to formalise this in the future.

I'd like to thank you for making our little girl's 2nd birthday a HUGE success. All the children had a wonderful time patting and holding all the animals, especially the birthday girl. My husband and I as well as all the guests were extremely impressed by the high level of cleanliness maintained throughout the afternoon. We will strongly recommend Animals on the Move to anyone considering having a farm themed kids birthday party!! Your service exceeded our expectations.
Special thanks to Terry and Gayle. Lovely people!
Hi Animals on the Move,
Thank you so much for allowing Brandy to visit Watsonia Library. Everyone, young and old had a great time. One gentleman had waited 54 years to milk a cow and he got to milk and learn the techniques of butter making at Watsonia Library. He never thought Watsonia would be the place he would realise his wish. Another family; children, mum, dad and grandma all were impressed. It was either snakes at a another library or Brandy. The cow milking won out over the reptiles. Milking a cow bought back fond childhood memories for the grandmother and the whole family were interested in making their own butter once they got home. Sally and Mat were great with the kids. I was impressed with Sally's animal handling skills and she encouraged the children to have a go at milking Brandy, and her knowledge was translated in a warm and friendly way so the kids wanted to ask questions. Friendly and funny is what we like here. Of course Brandy was beautiful and placid, especially with nearly 50 children wanting to milk her. The session was blogged so here is the site by one of the families that attend the session. http://leechbabe.com/2010/09/30/dont-have-a-cow-man/
So, my next question is: Raising chickens. I was wondering the cost for 2 weeks. I was planning to have the chicken raising in April (before Easter). I'm working on next years dates at the moment and can be more specific about times in the next few days. But definitely for the April school holidays. The next question is what happens to the chickens?
Thanks again for all you hard work and great ideas.
