Our Animal Family


We adopted Trico in 2015 from a family who could not keep him, he is very sweet and happy, and loves to play and retrieve balls and leap high in the air. He is my travelling companion and is an amazing dog. He bounced into my life after some challenging times when I was not even looking for another dog. He has brought so much joy and laughter and reminded me about the importance of love. More on his personal Facebook Page – The Unexpected Husky


We adopted Sylvester from a local kitten rescue, he is very sweet and happy, and loves to play and retrieve toys like a dog. We originally went to get one kitten but came home with two, but they keep each other busy and are great fun!

Bella Mia

Bella Mia is an Arabian mare, who just turned seven in 2012, she also came from a Rescue and was left there when she was a foal, though is a pure Arabian. She is very sweet and affectionate and we have been working hard training her and riding her a lot. She is very smart and learns quickly though can be fearful so we have been working with that a lot, and getting her used to a lot of different things and situations. More about her story and under Bella Mia and How She Chose Us.


Isabella is a nine year old donkey we adopted in 2014 as a companion to my horse Bella Mia. She is a gentle soul and had a hard life before, now Bella Mia and Isabella are devoted to each other and very happy in our new home. Isabella is smart and funny and sweet and has been a sweet addition to our animal family, and we are very glad we were able to adopt her.


Capricorn is an Oberhasli buck who is very gentle and kind. He helps mow the lawn and hangs out with his companion April, the doe.


Poppy is the kitten we adopted after we moved into our new house and she came into our lives to help us heal. She is very affectionate and funny, and a strong personality and came into our lives at the perfect time. We had named our property Poppy Hill Farm and after we adopted Poppy from the local shelter we were trying to think of a name, as it had just said three kittens. We looked down at the paperwork and her name was Poppy already. So we knew she was the kitten we were meant to have at Poppy Hill Farm.


Violet is a female Toulouse Goose, she was a rescue and sat on her infertile eggs for two months in the Spring, she did not hatch any eggs, though we did get some fertile eggs from a friend and was kind of lonely so we found her a mate.
