To the left are Holly and Liberty, two of our rescued goats here at the farm. Holly came from a very loving owner that was just unable to care for. Liberty came to us from an anonymous source saved from life threatening circumstances. Unfortunately we are receiving more and more calls to rescue farm animals, some from bad situations, some from situations that the owners have discovered farm animals may not make good pets. Whatever the reasons, those special animals need a good, forever home.

To the right is Holly, raiding the hay truck along side of Ginger and Roger, rescued from a good home that just could not keep up with their desire to escape and explore, and Laurel. Laurel is one of our first 2 goats and the first goat we welcomed into our home. It's been almost 10 years since that wonderful day, she is retired now due to a front leg issue but enjoys roaming the farm and hanging with her friends. Ginger, Roger and Holly are sponsored by a very loving individual who's circumstances did not allow for her to be able to bring them home, instead we care for them on a daily basis, their sponsor pays for their food and medical expenses and is welcome to visit anytime. 

This is Red, patiently standing in his food bowl waiting for it to be filled, Red does not goatscape but he does love goats!

On the left is one of our earliest and truly rewarding rescues, Red. He came from less than desirable conditions but has really made himself at home here on our farm. Red is a mini horse, only slightly larger than our largest goat.
