FY 2014

Letter from the President

Dear Fellow Stockholders,

Although we had a humble begi nning, the Lazy 5 Ranch has grown to become the home to over 750 animals from six different continents

Over 35 years ago, it all started in my very own barn with just one baby giraffe named Jeff. School groups were invited to gaze at the animals from the opposite side of the fence and through cracks of the barn doors. Other groups decided to make loops through the driveway to get a glimpse of the exotic animals. This experience opened the door to new educational and entertaining possibilities.

Therefore, w e came up with the idea of a park to share the full experience with children and adults alike. After years of planning and hard work, the park was finally opened on May 22, 1993. With only five staff members, two buildings and only two operating wagons, the Lazy 5 Ranch was officially open for business.

It is because of our unpretentious history that we strive to educate in an entertaining way, all while providing an excellent environment for the reproduction of these beautiful animals. Today, these animals can be viewed by a horse drawn wagon ride tour or from the comfort of your own vehicle while travelling along a four-mile safari ride. The Lazy 5 Ranch features exotic animals ranging from Gravy Zebra, Scimitar Horned Oryx, and Ring- tailed Lemur.

We are positive the Lazy 5 Ranch has a bright future because there is so much to be learned from the many amazing creatures residing on the ranch.

Letter from the President

In order to continue to provide such an entertaining and educational experience, we plan to expand the ranch to include exotic creatures in a wider variety. We will also provide informational packets on each animal explaining in detail their origin along with each unique quality. I sincerely believe these measures will help enhance and further the education of all of our visitors.

This past year was our best yet. What made the difference is all the support we have gained from all of our stockholders. It is our mission to continue to grow and exceed last year’s success.

We will do so by increasing the average number of daily visitors to the ranch, as well as increasing the length of the safari ride by two extra miles. We will remain dedicated to this mission because we understand the importance of sharing the different species this earth has to offer

Henry Hampton Founder and President
