Diva loves to give pony rides, spend time running around with Nugget, Tootie and Phil, and most of all she loves to eat anything and everything she can find. Diva is also trained to pull a cart, so with some further prep work she will be able to offer veterans an alternative to riding.

Puppy or goat? Phil isn’t quite sure. Phil is a 1 year old Nigerian Dwarf goat. He was bottle-fed as a baby and lived in the house, so he is pretty sure he is supposed to be with people at all times. Friendly doesn’t even begin to explain this little guy’s personality. He loves children, and even walks around on a leash, just like a dog. He has a real talent for making anyone that he is around smile.
