So you already know, but Kylie was adopted from a horse farm. They board 60 horses, do riding lessons, as well as raising cattle and hosting an ark worth of animals. We go back to visit to give her a chance to run around with no leash and catch up with the other dogs on the farm, as well as letting the owners see her again. We also go because it's now my favorite place around, the owners are incredibly compassionate and kind folks. For example: a premature calf born two weeks early was having difficulty breathing and was close to death. The vets said there wasn't any more they could do and let nature take it's course. So what did they do? They went out and rented an oxygen tank and gave the calf nebulizer treatments. This is the calf a few weeks later:
|This coop holds chickens, turkeys, ducks, guinea hens, and one goose. |
I'm beyond jealous.
|There's a blind horse they have, and this is his seeing eye pony.|
Notice the bells on his collar, the other horse follows him around by the bells.
|Their cattle. Most are red angus, they've just had a bunch of calves.|
|This is Ripley, he's a good boy.|
|Queen of the mountain!|
I just hope in a few years we can have a farm this awesome.
