I might live in one of the most densely populated areas of the country, but on my 20 minute (or so) drive to work, I pass the following (in front or side yards or in empty lots):
1. a sheep, which is most likely being kept against city regulations
2. horses on a pasture
3. more horses, also on a pasture
4. two chickens in an empty lot
5. three big dogs in a front yard
Once, I took an alternate route home and happened upon a cow in a side yard.
Also, signs crop up in driveways that announce the availability of goats for sale, in both English and Spanish ("Se venden chivos", in case you were wondering).
I never grew out of the phase of my life in which I got excited and yelled "LOOK, HORSES!!!" on car rides, so this is a rather pleasing aspect of my work life to me.
