Just an addition to Joy's message: Mahoney's also has farm animals to 
look at (but not to touch or feed). They include some goats, a llama, 
and something that sort of looks like a reindeer. They're out back near 
the Christmas trees, in a little pen topped by a giant inflatable 
Nativity scene.

Thanks for the suggestion, Joy.

> store, browsing is free.
