You are brave, I have not tried riding an ostrich, I will keep to my horses thank you LOL. Have you ever tried Ostrich neck cooked like OX tail it is superb?
I have been painting ostrich eggs, I still have a few left to paint when I have the time in France. Diane

Wow, lucky you - you got to ride an ostrich!!! I've eaten ostrich meat before but never been to a farm and never ridden one... a must - for later days!! Thanks for this wonderful post, I SO enjoyed it!

Craver Vii said...

This post was great! I gotta tell you that Mike's post was hilarious, too. Riding an ostrich... that's something else! Good for you!

That was quite the experience, Gaelyn!

Al said...

That looks amazing. I've never seen an ostrich farm - I remember they were going to be the next big thing but somehow it never worked out.

Randy Emmitt said...

Gaelyn,

Looks like you had some real fun. Bet you can tell about this ranch long into the future.

Wren said...

I had no idea ostriches lived that long. Pretty amazing for such a big bird.

Oh yee haw baby, what a wild ride! That is so awesome. Owning a couple ostriches really is a big dream of mine - they're the biggest birds on earth, that's just insanely cool to me. Meanwhile I'm trying to talk the boyfriend into getting some since he's got a farm. He hasn't been too keen so far, but since bears took three of his calves this year I'm wondering if he might not just warm up a bit to the idea of something that can disembowel a lion!

Bibi said...

Ride 'em, cowgirl! I love these photos, especially you on the eggs. There are several ostrich farms here, and they're trying to advertise their meat. Available some places. I bought ostrich pate years ago, but had to tell my family it was duck before they would try it...I told them the truth later.

Firefly said...

Visiting the ostrich farms are amazing. There really are so much to learn about them and the experience you get at these farms does end up being one of the highlights of an holiday.

I always think it must be interesting to be able to add to you cv something like professional ostrich jockey

Kathiesbirds said...

Wow Gaelyn, what a treat! I would love to get my fingers into those feathers and see how they feel but I would definately be wary of those powerful legs!

A human kind of human said...

Now, which version to believe....? (wink and smile)

Barb said...

Oh, my gosh, Gaelyn - only you would ride a kicking ostrich! What a tale - I am smiling ear to ear. (I hope the ostrich didn't know what you ate for dinner...)

Oh wow!! Pretty exciting. You are so brave and we will say the Ostrich was bested---or so I hear. MB

Elaine said...

What fun to ride the ostrich and very nice that you have the photos to prove it! You had so many grand adventures on your SA trip. I would have passed on crawling though those caves though.
