Yes, we are planning on getting animals.
Already have two ponies, my partner's pets, though we are planning to use the chunky one to pull logs up from the woods and pull a chain harrow etc stuff like that.
The previous owner left us 7 bantams including two Pekins ( one of which died yesterday from something blocking it's crop - we noticed too late and were too busy moving stuff still).

We are planning on having a family cow for milk, cheese, yoghurt, kefir, etc and beef from her calves.
Goats, sheep, pigs, ducks, geese, rabbits............. and whatever else we can think of!

We have 27 acres, 5 of which are wooded.

Hope you enjoy it and it is everything you have dreamed of. Good luck  for the future
