Sassy and Annie

SASSY & ANNIE

BREED: Ancona Duck

THEIR MOTTO: Home can be anywhere as long as you’re loved.

SASSY & ANNIE: We sent out a request to the universe for a small animal to come to the farm (we were thinking more along the lines of a rabbit) but instead came Sassy, a month old, blind duck. We soon realized that she was quite capable of taking care of herself but all she really needed was a friend. Carolina Waterfowl Rescue answered our request and so Annie came home to Sweetwater Farms to be a forever friend to Sassy.

SUNSHINE (SUNNY)

BREED: Halflinger

HER MOTTO: Even on a cloudy day, the sun is shining somewhere.

ABOUT SUNNY: What a joy it is to have Sunny with us at the farm.  Halflinger’s were originally bred between Austria and Italy as a sturdy mountain pack horse but today they are known for their peaceful temperament while carrying a rider or pulling a wagon.

CORDUROY, FAITH, DENNY, & MERRY

BREED: Miniature Goat

THEIR MOTTO: When you’re curious you find lots of interesting things to do. (Walt Disney)

ABOUT CORDUROY, FAITH, DENNY, AND MERRY:  Families can come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors and that sure does hold true for the caprines at Sweetwater Farms. Two brothers and two sisters make up our little goat family and they couldn’t be happier sleeping in their charming goat house or checking out the activity on the farm as they lay under their umbrella in their own backyard.
