Apple Holler's Quadruplet baby goatsPull the kids away from the television and computer and make some great memories at Apple Holler. You can visit the adorable animals that include goats, guineas, chickens, ducks and haflinger horses.

Every year we enjoy welcoming the new baby goats on the farm. They love to jump and play. You will often see them jumping on mom’s back.

The Summer of 2014 was quite memorable with the birth of quadruplets on July 7th. 2014. Quadruplets are very unusual. In fact, this is the first time we have had quadruplets. Factors that play into having multiple births include, family line, genetics, age, and diet. If a goat comes from a quad line, they will have a better chance of producing quads.

Apple Holler's Baby GoatApple Holler Animals in the Winter!

Apple Holler's Halflinger Horse in the SnowOur horses enjoy their breakfast after a light snow.

In Winter, horses need the most care and attention, since they have no natural sources of food to munch on continuously. We feed our horses plenty of grain, fresh water and about five bales of hay a day. Just for the winter months, this equals to about 15 tons of hay. Wow!

Apple Holler's Halflinger Horse in the SnowOur Halflinger horses are a breed that developed in Austria in the late 19th century. Bread for their hardiness and docile temperament they are perfect for our farm. Gentle enough for children to ride, yet strong enough to pull our wagons and sleighs! We love our Halflinger Horses!

All our animals are well cared during the winter months and throughout the year to make sure they keep warm and have fresh water and food.

Apple Holler's Goat

The Golden Goat Bridge is where you will see the goats climbing on the high bridges. They also enjoy getting hand fed extra feed.

Did we mentions we have goats, roosters, ducks, chickens and rabbits too?

You’ll see our chickens running around our farm or roosting in a tree!

Visit with our Farmyard Animal Friends! They love having visitors and showing off for our guests.
