IBOUGHT AZOO

- KATE KYRIACOU

THERE’S the miniature Shetland whose spine is crippled with scoliosis. And the racehorse that ran away after being shot in the head. Then there are the “miniature pigs” that turned out to be larger than expected.

And they’re all at the home of one of Queensland’s most high-profile lawyers.

Michael Bosscher (pictured) now leaves the zoo of the state’s criminal courts for the one at his own house after taking over Serendipit­y Farm, a petting zoo and rescue centre.

The venture was originally run from a property near Gatton but the owner had to give it up for health reasons. Michael, his wife, Alison, and their four children now care for and rehome animals from their Brookfield property.

And while the Bosschers argue over whose idea it was to bring about 100 animals home, they agree it was done for their animallovi­ng eldest daughter, Peri, 18.

Serendipit­y Farm will be holding a grand opening day on September 13. For details, visit their Facebook page.
