This is the story of Gay Balliet and Edgar, her veterinarian husband, who tend the health of strange and delightful barn animals, buffaloes, baboons and other creatures large and small in the historically rich and colorful Pennsylvania Dutch Country. They share many unforgettable situations, characters, and experiences of courage, warmth, and hilarity with both their animal and human friends. Among them: Tonto, an impish llama and his sheep friends; Buster, a lame bull who leads chase through woods and pond; and Lowell, the existential pig who performs pirouettes to the command "e;Baryshnikov."e; Theirs is a timeless world that retains innocence and an appreciation of nature a world they now share with animal lovers everywhere.
