We do not adopt out the horses here. By the time horses arrive here at Dogwood Farm, they have had many homes and various owners. Our job here is to stabilize their care and their life. Because our horses live in a herd, we try not to disrupt the herd, adding and then losing in the event of a horses’ death. In addition, these are large animals and could possibly hurt each other if they didn’t get along. We prefer our horses be in one group so that they can spend time out on pasture and not be limited by who they get along with. Right now, we have one group and everyone gets along.
Chickens and ducks are short-lived as it is. Chickens are not easy to mix and match in larger groups. Again, our intake is limited by our options to divide our current group.
