MEET THE ANIMALS

ABOUT SHILOH: Shiloh means peaceful and she has been a wonderful gift to us on the farm. She is one of our many rescued animals. Watch her incredible journey from neglect to finding love and her place of belonging on Sweetwater Farms. Shiloh’s video
BREED: Miniature Horse
HER MOTTO: Some lead. Some follow. I create my own path.
ABOUT PEACHES: Peaches is one of the most intelligent and respectful animals at Sweetwater Farms. She knows who she is and looks no further.
ISABELLE AND DEWEY
BREED: Pot Belly Pigs
HER MOTTO: Don’t worry. Be Happy!
ABOUT ISABELLE AND DEWEY: These two adorable animals love nothing more than going on a “rooting” adventure into the bigger pasture. Then when they need to cool off they go for a dip in their mud pool and take a nap on their sawdust beach. Life is good on the farm!
BREED: Mixed Breed Chickens
THEIR MOTTO: Live and let live!
ABOUT THE CHICKENS: We have 3 different varieties of curious and fun-loving chickens living in our Sweetwater coop. All of them are rescues and have found a forever home here at Sweetwater Farms!
BREED: Rocky Mountain
HIS MOTTO: What you believe—you become.
ABOUT BLUE: Blue can do just about anything. He can pull a cart, walk in a parade, plow a field, or carry a two year old on his back with surprising gentleness—and, he’s one of the sweetest animals on the farm.
BREED: Miniature Horse
HER MOTTO: Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
ABOUT ROSEBUD: Rosebud is the daughter of Peaches and one of the most resourceful animals on Sweetwater Farms. If there’s something she wants, not much can stand in her way from getting it.
LULU AND SAMMY
BREED: Angus and French Charolais
THEIR MOTTO: Learning new things can be fun and exciting!
ABOUT LULU AND SAMMY: This brother and sister act are the newest additions to the Sweetwater team and are fitting in nicely. The unique mixing of two different breeds of cows gives them their small size and cute little faces. We’re already in love with these two special animals!
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.
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.
BREED: Miniature Sicilian Donkey
HIS MOTTO: Me…is all I need to be!
ABOUT PEE WEE: Pee Wee is one of the characters in the Sweetwater storybooks and the biggest practical joker on the farm. Even when he’s mischievous, it’s hard not to laugh.
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.
DOMINO AND JASPER
BREED: Lionhead Rabbits
THEIR MOTTO: Eating lots of fruits and veggies is hip hoppity fun!
ABOUT DOMINO AND JASPER: We wanted to find a couple of friends for the ducks and so these little boys magically appeared! We built them a pen right next to the ducks and now they all are inseparable. The ducks watch the bunnies hop all around from their stump to their house while the bunnies watch the ducks paddle in their little pond. What a great life!
