PASSIONATE PEOPLE, HAPPY ANIMALS
Youthfully exuberant. Impulsive. Inquisitive. Very social and interested in the treats that you must have in your pocket. Namesake of the business and life-changer. Will test you until you are sure.
Born Halloween 2017. Plays hard. Naps hard. As a black lab, often too excited to sit when she meets you, but knows she should. Likes- Loves chasing chickens. Loves her trainer, Mrs. Patti. Not sure what to do with pigs.
Bronco was brought as a rescue, from a discouraging situation last summer. But he has not looked back and gained about 200 lbs of muscle. He has a lot of experience and although worthy of his name, is gentle and loves to please his humans.
An old soul. Wise beyond his years. Had a tough ranch upbringing but has found a home here. Works hard for those he trusts. Will test you until he is sure.
Some of us have names, we are fosters and adoptees as well as homegrown hens and roosters. We teach gentleness, calm, and graded movements. We are experts in the unexpected and produce your breakfast.
Our new ranch pup is half red heeler and half Idaho Shag. Both herding breeds, his genetics shine through when with the sheep, goats and even humans sometimes! Full of energy, but also full of love and kisses.
3 little piggies are always here, and then they go to market. Eating the yummy meals from the variety of food we get from the local food bank and brewery, pigs help us learn about healthy food choices. They really like Avocados, brewer's grain and your shoes for snacking.
Our flock started with a free show goat, named Trooper. We also added a couple goats that came when we bought a horse trailer. One of those, Delilah, was pregnant. Surprise! 3 more last October. Flower, Flynn and Feisty Flash are quite a set of triplets. All together they are the best weed-eaters on the block!
