Large mammals can be intimidating, horses and cattle, stuff like that could back into you and kill you by accident. Anyone ever been to the deer park at MarineLand or anywhere else? My daughter was traumatized at the age of 3 by the young deer they had there. We gave her the ice cream cone full of feed that you can buy at the park, the deer swarmed, she spilled the food all over herself and scaled up her aunt's clothing and clung as the deer nibbled at the food she was now wearing. She was terrified and we couldn't get her near anything with fur or legs for about a year after that. Now she has a cat but at first we had to explain why we couldn't keep him in an aquarium like the snakes. The idea of animals running loose in the house was crazy to her.
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...
