Charles came to us from another petting zoo, so he knows his roll well! Depending on their breed, sheep are usually dual purpose animals meaning they are raised for more than one reason. Sheep with wool are raised for wool and/or meat. Some sheep breeds can even be used for milk!
Larry is a llama! But don't let his breed scare you! Unlike your typical llama, Larry will NOT spit at you! He loves attention and will come right up to great you if you have a handful of grain for him!
Scooter is a miniature zebu! Zebus are the smallest breed of cattle in the world. A few of the characteristics known to the breed are a fatty hump between their shoulders and loose skin on their lower neck. They are an exotic breed and extremely rare.
Annie came to us as an orphan. We bottle raised her which has made her a total doll! She's a Nigerian Dwarf, which is a miniature goat breed that's used for milk. As you can see she has horns. Female goats can grow horns just like males! They can be removed at a young age or banded when they get older. If a goat never grows horns. it's considered "polled" which means "naturally hornless".
Willow is one of the miniature horses we rotate between at our events. Like Java, she is also in the "A" class because she is under 34 inches tall. She is our oldest animal at 18 years old! Horses can live 30+ years with proper care and love! She is trained to pull a cart, which is one of the main things people use minis for. Because of their small size they can't carry a lot of weight on their backs, but can safely pull 2 regular size adults or loads up to 3x their weight.

Luna is a miniature horse, but due to her gorgeous white color she plays the role of a miniature unicorn PERFECTLY! Luna currently only does events by herself and doesn't travel with the rest of the menagerie. She will turn any party into a magical event!
Braylee turned a year old in August. She is grey in color, so she has the traditional "cross" across her back. She has recently started doing more events and will be working full time this season!
Java is one of the miniature horses we rotate between at our events. Miniature horses are divided into two different divisions based on their size. Java is in the "A" class because he is under 34 inches tall. Minis in the "B" class measure over 34 inches up to 38 inches. Miniature horses are also the only other animals other than dogs that can be registered as a "seeing-eye" animal for the blind!
