At 13 to 15 hands high there is nothing “pony” about them. Stamina and versatility, calm and intelligent make them perfect for their work with children, teens and families coming to the farm. They are ideal horses for both disabled and able bodies, first time, or experienced participants. Haflingers are known as horses that are surefooted, steadfast, reliable, resilient, sweet-natured, and people-oriented. They are at the ready to be trusted and willingly work as valuable team members in support, growth, and learning sessions.
You cannot miss their beautiful gold coats with eye catching thick and flowing white mains and tails.
Not to be confused with ponies, these horses are under 36” at their withers! Easier to reach and teach with and about overcoming fear and barriers.
Different colours, ages and origins… smart and noisy! Teach and reach children and youth with lessons about decisions and responsibility ~not stubbornness
Loving, playful and child-like ruminants provide participant opportunities to run play and just be a kid.
Sure footed camel lids trained not to spit. They are excellent team members that demonstrate personal space, self regulation and respect.
Curious and worrisome, with their own sweaters. Their constant “baaaah” can bring unwanted attention in the form of a coyote ~wow what a farm lesson!
Pigs have DNA very close to humans, come see why! Managing stress, anxiety and fear keeps pigs happy and shows participants too!
Their stunning tails are meant to scare of predators by appearing to be huge giants eyes!
Birds come in all shapes, colours, characteristics and sizes; providing lots of entertaining antics around the farm.
Chickens are recognized clinically as helpful in autism, autistic spectrum and Asperger participant growth and learning.
We have all sorts of different rabbits at the farm, even some with manes! They require slow, gentle, kind attention from participants.
Yep, we have these too. You’ll usually see Texas (he’s above) giving you a smile, and you may even have “Mr. Cat” follow you around the farm!
