I have 4 tables: Animals -- Race ---- Color -------- Name

I know how I can load each table one by one but since the tables are related I want to load all elements and the whole hierarchy at once.

I tried loading in _afterLoad but this would result in executing many queries

Any help appreciated!

Implement your own Resource model, extended somehow from Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Db_Abstract and change _getLoadSelect(), then you can load whatever you want
