Meet the Animals


AVERYThe Scoundrel
Avery is very fittingly a Capricorn. Born January 7th, he is soft-hearted and determined. He’s the little brother that torments you because he loves your attention, and if we’re being honest, we linger a little longer hoping he’ll drive us crazy.

HARPERThe Tender Heart
This poor girl had a very rough start, but she’s survived and thrived. 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.

LEVIGentle-ish Leader
The boy has soul. Levi will make you weak in the knees as he stares into your eyes. He’s a sweet and loving guy. Levi loves when humans say hello. With his roommates he is a boss; well-respected but not feared. His best friends are his caregiver Kat and his goat-friend Avery.

ROMYThe Deep Soul
Romy is pure innocence, a deep soul, an angel and a people-person. Romy’s gaze will melt your heart. He’s so responsive to his name and human affection that he will come running (actually, pronking!) from any distance if you utter his name.

More about Romy to come…


ALLYFlirty Girl
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.

ANITAThe Gentle Guardian
Anita is an angel that walks the earth. We love to give her kisses on her sweet little nose and get tickled by her soft whiskers. Having only one eye doesn’t keep Anita from watching everything that goes on at Hockhockson Farm.

NUGGETLil’ Romeo
Nugget is a super sweet boy – often mistaken for a plush toy. He’s that cute. He’s a friend to all, but his best bud is Sneakers, and his girlfriend is most certainly Panda. This little Romeo will call out to his Juliet and she will happily run to him.

SNEAKERSSenior Statesman
You’d never know by meeting young-spirited Sneakers that he’s 32 years old (that’s 99+ years for us humans!). He’s a very sweet old man often caught making the silliest of faces. Stubborn at times, it’s in the most wonderful way. Lady horses love him, especially our Ally.

More about Sneakers to come…


ARTHURArtisan Nest Builder
Arthur is a perfectionist in his craft. He will pick up the tiniest strand of straw and add it to his bed. “Arthur you’re so right, it did need that one more piece.” Once in his nest, he does not appreciate being disturbed. He’s made his bed and now he wants to lie in it!

GROMITSweet, sweet, sweet!
Jill (our Director of Shelter and Rescue), says that our boy Gromit is one of the sweetest angels she’s ever met, and she’s met a lot of angels! Jill is the first to advise not to kiss a pig on the snout, but with Gromit we notice her breaking the rules.

Veronique’s mid-day nap is your best chance to cuddle with her. When she’s not snoozing, she’s exploring. Always on the go, she’d prefer to be out rooting in the pasture. While she appreciates a good belly rub, she won’t commit too long as she may be missing out on something else!

BARRYTracey’s Boy
Tracey calls Barry her boy. The two spent a lot time napping together when Barry was convalescing, but Barry’s soulmate is Eliza. He loves her! Barry is incredibly sweet, tolerant and trusting. Whenever we’re crouched in the barn working, we’ll feel gentle pressure on our shoulder that is Barry’s head.

ELIZAQuietly Amazing
Eliza loves love. She won’t seek out attention but if you look her in the eye and stroke her cheek, her tail will wag fast and she’s all yours. She’s described as “a lot of sheeple’s best friend.” She’s incredibly maternal, but in a “cool aunt” kinda way. She demands respect, and we have loads for her!

Young Frankie is always ready to play. ALWAYS! She can get quite rambuctious. That’s when we tap out and let the goats tap in. By walking away we teach her that that’s not how we wish to play. While headbutting isn’t for all of us, she certainly has her goat and sheep friends that are more than happy to oblige.

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 is a good, good boy! He’s so gentle and never even went through his head-butting phase.

More about Lucas to come…
