MEET THE ANIMALS

Remember to do unto animals…

As animal lovers, we can always do and be more for those who depend on us. When we make changes in our lives — whether big or small — that move us toward seeking compassion for others, we are moving in the right direction. I believe anything is possible and change can happen in the world when we as individuals live by our beliefs and let kindness be our inspiration. Remember to Do Unto Animals when you’re Doing Unto Others! I’ve learned more often than not, the rescued animal is the human, and the rescuer usually has four legs (or sometimes 3, or wings, or fins…you get the picture).

Elisa

ELISA

Quietly Amazing

Eliza loves love -- she won’t seek it out but look her in the eye and stroke her cheek, her tail will wag fast and she’s all yours. Described as “a lot of sheeple’s best friend.", she’s incredibly maternal. Barry and Lucas adore her and Frankie will seek her out to snuggle and rest on her head on her back.

Lucas

LUCAS

Baby Boy

No matter how old Lucas is, he’ll always be our baby boy. He’s super-duper sweet and cuuuuuute! He looks like an angel and his looks don’t deceive. He’s so gentle and never even went through his head-butting phase. He loves connection and to be pet and, like many others, he adores Eliza. We adore him!

Luca the Sheep
Sneakers

SNEAKERS

Senior Statesman

You’d never know by meeting young-spirited Sneakers that he’s 32 yrs. old --99+ yrs. for us humans! His favorite activities include rolling in the grass and then rolling in the grass some more, running, puzzle toys and watching the mini horses like he’s watching TV! The ladies love this sweet old man!

Ally

ALLY

The Constant Companion

Ally is our little shy girl. With her friend Anita by her side-- she is calm, gentle and content. While hesitant around people at first once you earn her trust, she’ll show you her goofy side. When she’s not hanging with Anita in the pasture she’s flirting with Sneakers.

Anita

ANITA

The Gentle Guardian

Anita is an angel! We love to kiss her sweet little nose and get tickled by her soft whiskers. Having only one eye doesn’t keep Anita from keeping an eye on everything. She's observant and sensitive. She and Ally adore each other. When they run together it's like synchronized swimming on land.

Nugget

NUGGET

Lil' Romeo

Nugget is a super sweet boy, often mistaken for a plush toy. He loves to rile everyone for play. His best bud is Sneakers. His girlfriend is Panda (a therapy horse from Mini Horse Heroes that he shares a paddock with). This little Romeo will call out to his Juliet and she will happily run to him.

Veronique

VERONIQUE

The Explorer

Always on the go, Veronique prefers to be out rooting in the pasture way past her bedtime. While she appreciates a good belly rub, she won’t commit too long (#FOMO). She likes to nibble on your pants and shoes, and if it slows her down enough to give her some love, we’ll take it.

Arthur

ARTHUR

Artisan Nest Builder

He'll pick up the tiniest strand of straw to add to his bed. “Arthur, it did need that 1 piece.” Buried so deep in his nest, we have to feel around a bit to ensure he’s tucked in for bed. A committed snoozer by night -- super active by day. He’s always rooting for something and we’re rooting for him!

Arthur the Pig
Wilbur

WILBUR

Master of the Snooze

Not a morning guy, Wilbur is more the type to hit the snooze button. Arthur and Wilbur explore different nooks and crannies during the day. At bedtime though, they report back to each other with the day’s events and snuggle deep inside their nest. The only clue they’re in there is an occasional snort.

Levi

LEVI

Gentle-ish Leader

Levi is a sweet and loving guy--a boss well-respected but not feared. His best friends are caregiver Kat and Avery. He LOVES his winter coat and takes on a bit of bravado when wearing it. He had to be brave to make his escape from a slaughterhouse as he’s a fainter. He’s our superhero!

Levi the Goat
Harper

HARPER

The Tender Heart

Harper packs a wallop into a small package and a wallop is what you’ll get if you try to push her around. She’s playful gurrrrl but she don’t play. Her hard exterior belies a smushy soft center. Harper LOVES to say hi to everyone and to sunbathe on the jungle gym. We love seeing the sun shine down on her!

Harper the Goat
Avery

AVERY

The Scoundrel

Avery is very fittingly a Capricorn; soft-hearted and determined. He’s the little brother that torments you because he loves your attention. To be honest we linger a little longer hoping he’ll drive us crazy. Hobbies: Macgyvering toys out of anything and looking for trouble with Levi.

Barry

BARRY

Tracey's Boy

Incredibly sweet, tolerant and trusting: He has the cutest freckles on his nose. He loves sneaking up to give hugs. If you don’t give him attention he will paw at you until you oblige. He appreciates a good spa day with soft music and a gentle shearing. Tracey calls him her boy but his soulmate is Eliza.

Barry the Sheep
Frankie

FRANKIE

Let's Play

Young Frankie is ALWAYS ready to play. When she gets ram-buctious we tap out and let the goats tap in. Walking away teaches her that’s not how we wish to play--her goat and sheep friends are happy to oblige her. When it’s time for this spirited girl to slow down she loves to snuggle with her gal pal Eliza.

Frankie
Romy

ROMY

The Deep Soul

Romy is pure innocence. A deep soul, his gaze will melt your heart. He'll come running (actually, pronking!) from any distance if you utter his name. Forever curious, this goofy, social butterfly gets along with everyone who greets his fence line: sheep, goats, pigs, humans, deer, and dogs.

Ducks

BENNETT, CLARENCE, & HEZEL

Just Ducky Brothers!

This tight-knit family moves as a unit - if one is going to check out something, they're all going. Hezel is the shortest and squattest of the flock; super sweet, with a middle child personality. Bennett is a take charge kinda guy; the outgoing leader of the group. Clarence is our curious cutie.

Alondra

ALONDRA

Sleeping Beauty

You may find Alondra sound asleep in her hay tube looking so angelic and peaceful, but she plays as hard as she sleeps! She's a master runningback with fancy and fast footwork - bopping around the jungle gym hoping to entice Avery or Romy to play with her. She is a lover of all and loved by all!

Wendy

WENDY

Snuggle Bunny

Initially shy, Wendy opens up with a humorous, talkative personality. She loves to observe the antics of the ducks. Her best friends are Valerie and caregiver Christina. When Christina signs out on nightly health charts, Wendy knows that's her cue to nestle in her lap for the perfect end to the day.

Valerie

VALERIE

Earth Mother

Valerie is very brave and curious. She'll leap into the air to get hand-fed treats. Her favorite is blueberries. She loves scratching at the earth for bugs, and of course, she loves her special friend Wendy. The two share a special bond.

Grover

GROVER

Special Boy with a Big Heart

Grover is a dreamy boy. He'll fall asleep in Tracey's lap, and she loves this probably even more than he. Grover loves to play and get the zoomies - leaping in the air, running into his stall and jumping atop his bales of hay. He loves meeting new friends and has never met a soul he didn't like. He is adored!
