We grow unusually small livestock at our farm. Animal manageability is important to me and even though I have absolutely no control over any of them, their smaller size is a tad less intimidating. Animals in miniature seems to extend to many creatures that live at the land. In fact, recently I found an extraordinarily tiny dinosaur living upside-down in the rafters of our rickety purple shed. Jeremy argues that it’s probably just an extraordinarily large insect of some sort. But that’s way too creepy. Bugs should never, ever, never grow this large. I’m more comfortable with miniature dinosaur. Like the tiny livestock, it makes the creature seem more manageable somehow.
