Meet the Minis & Barnyard


Our barnyard animals consist of mini horses, donkeys, goats, and sheep. From surrenders to seizes, various little critters have found their way to this oasis. These little guys make great companions for other horses, barnyard animals, or they make great pets too.

Donkeys are vastly under-rated and under-appreciated in the equine world. They are extremely loyal to their humans, great companions for other equine or barnyard animals, and are the absolute best security systems and protectors for their hoofed friends. Some of our minis are rideable, while others will require more training and/or companion only.

"I highly recommend Laurie Higgins- Kerley and the equine therapy work that she does at Dove Creek Ranch for a number of reasons. Laurie is a gifted teacher who incorporates shamanic ceremony, kundalini yoga, lightwork, grief counseling, community leadership, and equine therapy into her work among other knowledge and influences that she shares. I continue to seek guidance from Laurie and her professional therapy services because she has helped me to have a deeper understanding and awareness of my emotions through the work she does with equine therapy. She has also been instrumental in helping me to develop leadership, communication, and community building skills. She has a powerful way of teaching compassion, playfulness, and respect for Life through her living example."
