Top Ten Animals That are Commonly Found On A Traditional Farm.

The Top Ten

1 Horse Horse The horse is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae, and can be tamed, bred, and trained, as a mount.

HORSES ARE THE BEST! You can train them and it is like the are apart of you! Anyway if you are going to be having a garden... Well when the horse poops, it's great menuwer!

Horses are intellegent creatures. They are great companions for all ages and are useful as work animals. They are graceful and beautiful. They are so much fun to ride. Understanding when you're sad and happy when your happy with them. Awesome, they are!

I am leasing to horses and they are wonderful they aren't smelly at all at first their poop smells for 2 minutes and then it doesn't smell at all horses are not hard to take care of I love them so much they can be really well trained and great farm pets I love horses

Horses are mention as when the subject is cars as well. Not certain still what brought that about. - iliescu

2 Cow Cow

cow is the best best best best farm animal in the world.

Cows are by far the best we have a sweet little jersy and she is the cutest thing you could ever see. Going to calve in may and is just like a big puppy follows me around the barn and dances around for her grain so cute

By far the best animal it gives us milk yum I mean who doesn't like they make good pets to if you look after them well and if you love them they will love you to sum up my story cows are great! 1

Cows can make the most amount of profit on a farm so therefore the best animal to have on a farm

3 Pig Pig A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar, along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog.

This is by far the best animal on this farm. It will win in fight against a SHEEPDOG because it can just lunge at it and do its top secret sumo wrestler move so it can even beat 5 sheepdogs. This is the most underrated animal, even though it is at 3! GO PIGS!

I think pigs (especially mini pigs) are by far the best and cutest farm animal!

I love pigs I have 3 and they r about to have piglets and they are all very friendly. They make money if you sell piglets or if you sell them as pork. I think this should be number 1.

Too cute! - David39

4 Goat Goat The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe.

Goats are a very versatile animal as well, you get milk, you can make anything that you would with cows milk. Drink it, make cheese, make soap.

Goats are so cute they rub up against you and ccome in all sizes

My mum really wants a goat on a farm when we move because we live in Cairns and there is not enough room in Cairns so we will have to move if we wanted to... Anyway I think a goat is a perfect farm animal because you can milk and make cheese and make soap so I think it's a perfect pet to have on a farm.

Goats are very funny and cute too 😛

5 Chicken Chicken The chicken is a type of domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the red junglefowl. It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 19 billion as of 2011.

They make awesome noises and I heard that most chickens can play the piano breh!

Chickens should be first! They can be used for more then any other farm animal. You can eat their eggs and their meat. You can use their feathers. Chicken fertilizer is excellent for growing lettuce and cabbage. They can till gardens removing them of weeds and bugs. They will eat most almost any leftover you don't want to help cut down on garbage. And if you are not one for slaughtering farm animals, they can make great (outdoor) pets even and can be used for show-birds. - Ethlin

People! Random strangers! Farm animals are NOT PETS. They are for the humans' uses. Not cuteness. Rabbits are not very yummy, so I have no idea why people wish to raise them as farm animals. Horses, pigs, cows and goats I understand. For food and riding. Yes, but not for 'rubbing against your leg'. Just go visit some 'top ten pets' and vote for pigs or sheep there. Chickens are very useful, laying large quantities of eggs. The meat is also very good. There are many different types of chickens, used for different ways. Even if you don't want to eat your chickens, you can just buy some pretty one.

They are so friendly if you are kind to them

6 Sheep Sheep The sheep is a quadrupedal, ruminant mammal typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates.

Sheep produce lamb, great for selling, and mutton. They produce sweeter milk than cows or goats. They provide wool, and lanolin oil. They are excellent grazers, and provide manure.

If you have a sheep, you get to have their wool, they also give you their milk and you can eat them too! Very good animal to have!

Sheeps are so sweet. I love it. And their whole are so soft.

Yummy!

8 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

"I think that Rabbits shouldn't live on a farm because they are cute, funny, and furry. But of corse they can also be harmful because if they have sharp teeth than they can bite you and if the bunny is in a bad mood than it might bite you and also you should never have a baby when there also is a Rabbits at your house and plus if you have a gate in your back yard they might figure a way to get out.

So don't get a rabbit on your farm or in your house because they are very cute, furry, and funny but trust me don't get one. P.S. They will eat all of your carrots.

9 Alpaca

Best Animal. They can handle small loads of weight and are very cute. Also their fur is very soft and valuable.

No. I would not like to share my opinion. Thank, you very much. But Alpaca's are very good. They are furry and are definitely better than normal sheep. That is why I vote for the Alpaca. There is no other reason. Although I think that Alpacas aren't actually that of a common farm animal. I guess I did share my opinion.

Alpaca can give you softer wool than sheep and they will protect your sheep heard

10 Duck Duck

Ducks are the best animal. They are one of the only animals that live on land, water, and air.

Ducks are adorable especially baby ducklings they are so fluffy

I have 6 ducks, 3 Pekin and 3 Buff Orpington. I've never thought that ducks could be so sweet! They are a lot of fun for all ages, amazing to watch them grow, and lay eggs that are known to taste great in pastries! They may not be as popular as a chicken, but that doesn't mean they're not a bundle of fun!

Ducks are so beautiful

The Newcomers

? Bee

Bees are amazing. They make awesome, super healthy, and sweet honey. They also give you beeswax which you can make Chapstick and candles to keep or sell. Also if you put them near your plants they will be producing a lot of big, beautiful, delicious fruit. Also bees are really fun to watch work.

On November 2 Hold on to your honey

? Carabao

My father or our family loves carabao because they can help us in different ways

It is the farmer's helper supposed to be there's a carabao..
how can a farmer produce or harvest the best rice if there's no carabao...

I think you mean "caribou"

Carabao are fantastic

The Contenders

11 Dog

Sheepdogs are the best you can train them to tend to sheep be house train and do much more. Also they are very loyal. They could also be a hard working guard dog

Otherwise known as: Border Collie (most of the time :3) these dogs are amazing! So smart and controlling with the sheep. This makes the work for the farmer much easier :) If you ever see a sheepdog round up some sheep, you'd see it is very impressive. - CloudofMercury

I think a dog because you can play and it guards your farm animals for you if you want a guard dog but a normal dog than yes as well because it's cute and a good choice for a farm animal.

I have a farm with 2 chickens, rooster, 5 cows, 4 sheep, 8 horses(a lot), farm cat and a sheep dog. The sheep dog is called lamby (cute name) and is THE BEST (much better than Louis, my farm cat)

12 Llamas Llamas The llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era.

My grandpa Ward owns a llama farm because he lives in Pennsylvania. Grandma Rhoda, his wife, recently passed away because of cancer. But, hey! At least he has the llamas to keep him company!

Llamas are the best.

LLamas are amazing and funny

You ugly! lammas suck.

13 Goose

I had a goose that thought I was his mom once. He lived with chickens as his brothers and sisters. They were raised together. His name was Jeffery, and when I would lay down in the grass to read my book, he would climb up on my back. He had just learned to fly when we moved. One day a dog broke into the coop and attacked. He died along with all but one of the chickens. He was my little boy, and probably died fighting for the other birds.

Go geese! They are intelligent, loving friendly and great 'watchdogs'! They can really bond with there owner as well. I have not personally tasted goose eggs yet though.

Yes it should be

14 Ox

Oxen are nice animals. They have a nice look and coat.

Do these still live!?!?!?!

Do these still exist?

Horses, but stronger

15 Turkey

Turkeys are the best! Somw people think their mean but can bond with there handlers like any animals. I strongly suggest getting Turkey also because of their feathers with are nice to craft with and you'll never have to buy a Turkey again.

Thought they are tasty but are really mean and attack small children my little brother had to go to the hospital because of a Turkey.

Studies have shown that these are dumbest birds on earth

That sounds and tastes good

16 Golden Pheasant

Golden pheasants are great. I have 3 varieties. And I make a lot of money on their eggs and chicks

17 Cat

You gonna start a farm get yourself a barn cat

Barn cats help grow the harvest crops of autumn by catching and devouring pests like rats and harvest mice who naw at the seeds and plants that have grown through the summer.

Why are silly horses on the top? They are beautiful and you can ride them but that's pretty much it. Barn cats literally save the barn by eating all the pesky rats!

Come on guys! Cat are awesome! Anybody here know who I am...

18 Honey Bees

Honey bees are very important for the farm they produce honey by sucking on nectar

Sadly they will be soon extinct

19 Elk

Elk are elegant, gracful, and strong

20 Peafowl

These are beautiful animals.

They are beautiful animals who wouldn't want one

21 Yak

Can shear and get wool comparable to cashmere, can milk, as tough as a goat, as big as a cow can carry things and be ridden like a horse that are the best and most versatile of animals

22 Guineafowl

Keep bugs down and don't touch your vegetable garden

They make good eggs that you can make lots of money on!

They get rid of ticks good if you have cats.

23 Pony

Yes, they are smaller than horses. But consider the fact they are STRONGER than horses. If you get an old well bonded horse from a breeder they are more "perfect for kids".

They are the same as a horse but smaller so they are better for children.

Because the are so pretty

AMAZING

They are cool and they are like cats to cool

I do not like fox's they eat farm animals.

Foxes eat and kill farm animals

Why a fox? They are great to look at and are stunning but really not on a farm all your livestock will be gone by the time you come back! Maybe leave the fox out for the time being! 🐺 Will eat anything save other animals not just one! 👎🏼

26 Appaloosa

I just love them.

27 Birds

Birds are wonderful animals

28 Mules

Mikes are the best in my opinion because they can carry a large amount of weight other animals can't they are also really loyal

Mules are good for riding

So cute and loyal

Best for working in feilds.
