She really enjoys helping both animals and their people feel relaxed and well cared for while they are here. Over the years their farm has grown to include a variety of pets including their dog Sage, two house cats and a few barn cats that showed up as strays and then stayed due to being neutered and well fed. They also have Gypsy Vanner horses, a cow named Mama C, Chickens, and one photo-bombing llama named Louie.
