It’s really true, his name IS Rooster. He is our resident Equine Specialist and the guy who keeps EVERYTHING running, fixed, and orderly around here. He has served in the National Guard and our Horses SERVE program is his passion.

Equine Team Members


Hoss is a Quarter horse who came to our herd about 7 years ago. He seems to enjoy hanging out with Max, the German Shepard.


Cody is a Quarter Horse who joined our herd about 4 years ago. He is a Rooster’s pal and is Princess’ “best buddy.”


Kohl quickly became our herd matriarch. While she currently has no foals here, she seems to have no trouble “mamma-ing” anyone she is around.


Princess is the newest, and smallest, member of our herd.

Dog Team Members


Want to share a quiet snuggle with one of the farm pups? Frankie is your guy. He’s been known to shoulder a good cry or two also!


Max is a young man with a lot of energy. Timid at first, he will quickly warm up to you when you’ve got a ball in your hand!
