One small perk to having several older brothers, you not only get their experiences and connections, but you get their girlfriends’ connections too. My youngest brother (still two years older than myself) has a wonderful girl named Haley who works for the most photographed kangaroo and wallaby ranch in Fall City, Washington.
My father and I were given a private tour by the owner Rex in his amazing ranch. We were extremely surprised at how soft the kangaroos were, as well as how tall and loving. It was a pleasant experience and very informative.
I had not realized the babies developed and grew since embryotic stages in the pouch. Rex introduced us to two babies around five months old relaxing in their pouches. What a great profession he is involved in!
