    Well, since you said animals and not pets:

    40,000 chickens
    1 guard cat -who has been put on the naughty list because she is "with kitten"
    1 guard cat's boyfriend -seems to like living with her --so scandalous!
    42 goats -includes bucks does and babies

    I win! 44,044 animals!! HAHA!
    (we raise broiler chickens 2, 500ft houses. 20,000 in each house.)

    Wow, I don't feel so bad about my numbers looking at all the numbers here! I keep trying to convince my husband that it is not really a goat "herd" unless it looks big enough roaming about the pasture together. Lol.

    16 Goats (including kids who will be sold: 8 Does, 7 Kids, 1 Buck...and of course I'm keeping at least one doe kid and a buck kid of those.)

    3 1/2 Horses (because one is a yearling)

    3 Dogs, 1 Cat...and because they live at my house, another dog and horse of friends.

    So....25 1/2 Holy cow...seems like a lot when I actually count them!

    I agree with Kylee, I have too many at times! I can't begin to compute my .5's (do neighbor's loose horses, pigs and goats count)?

    6 goats: Currently have a buck, 2 wethers, 2 does and a retained doeling. Just sold the rest this month (buckling year).

    I have one rooster and 16 ? hens (I'm loving my Orpingtons, NH Reds and my favorite Elizabeth (my gold laced wyandotte), have silver laced, leghorns (never again), Polish Crested (cuz they make me laugh, but still give eggs), and an easter egger, too)

    1 cat, but the previous owners left 7. Some now have gone feral (I was able to send 3 to rescue). those must be the .25's? 4 left=1 ;)

    5 horses:One is a 27 years old AQHA mare, one Egyptian Arabian mare who thinks she's a dog, and 3 Spotted Saddle horses/Tn. Walkers.

    2 Bearded Collies! My male is a CH, my female's full brother just took Herding group at Westminster. (no pups)

    A Treeing Walker Coonhound rescue that should've been named "Goofy".

    The pond houses trout and several Koi, Canadian geese (6 or 8) and a blue heron.

    Compute that! ;)

    11 goats, 4 cats, 3 dogs and a miniature horse.

    One of those cats is preg. :angry: She is a long haired tabby that our "lovely" neighbors got tired of, and dumped. Without spaying her. :hair:

    I should show some of these numbers to my husband, maybe he would think he got a bargain with me LOL! He is always teasing me that I have a petting zoo and I only have 5 goats with 1 doe kidding soon so possibly 6-8 goats lol! 3 cats (all rescues) 1 dog, and 2 horse. I also have 25 chickens, but 10 of those are slated to be dinner when butchered this fall. So I currently have 36 animals with baby goats to come! Would LOVE to add ducks and geese to the mix but just not ready yet.
