-LOOKING FOR PURE BRED RABBITS: Contact Claire if you can help her: 951-254-6212
-FREE GOATS: 3 females ages 6, 7, and 8. Owner would prefer that they go together. Please contact Jessica 907-575-2412 for more information. Picture HERE.
-FREE PERCHERON/MORGAN MARE: Please call 907-232-3982 for more details. She does not do well on the hills in our pen during the winter. She refuses to move much and then gets stiff. She needs a pen built on level ground, must have very limited access to grass, and eats low-sugar or soaked hay. She hasn't been ridden all winter. She's very good on trails, great with obstacles, and doesn't spook easily. See a picture of her HERE.
