Turtles love kitchen scraps

Sheared (sort of) sheep for collecting wool


Our kitchen scraps are popular with everyone


Rabbits love veggies, citrus peels, banana peels and fruit.   We give them our kitchen scraps and they find what they need in there to stay healthy.  


Our horse had a cyst on the inside of her leg. We are treating it with my salve for cysts and growths and it has reduced in size.   Another few weeks and it will be gone


Baby bunnies are especially vulnerable in their first few weeks.   It's a combination of care from their mom together with us that will increase their chances of survival

The kids are responsible for the animals. Feeding, cleaning and caring for them.   It's a lot of work, but worth the effort
