Though we do not accept indoor pets, there is a modern barn with secure stalls. If you are traveling with your horses, inquire about our facilities. You would provide all feed and care. Because we have 6 friendly goats, we do not allow dogs. The goats are at times at our home down the road. You are welcome to visit and feed the goats through the fence, but only the food we provide. They are on a special diet. If we are on the property doing goat care and you would like a more involved introduction to our goat family, we are happy to have you join us.
