Wild Acres Farm

Wild Acres Farm Breeding registered Myotonic Fainting Goats and Miniature Horses since 2000.

We are a small farm located in Poolesville, Maryland; just forty-five minutes north of Washington DC and twenty minutes south of Frederick. We focus on breeding and raising quality Miniature Horses that are shown throughout the country, miniature Texas Longhorns, and registered Myotonic fainting goats.. In addition we raise and show market hogs and breed market lambs. Dogs, cats, chickens, goats, and a rabbit also call Wild Acres Farm home. We got a little bit of something for everyone!

The Montgomery County Ag Fair, MD meant a lot to our whole family, but for more than 15 years, it was everything to my wife Pam! She loved being there, working their, visiting the people and the animal there.

Some of Wild Acres Farm's animals went to Christina, which means they show up everywhere! Which included on Fox 5 DC's Zip Trip Friday. WAF Zeva loved all of the attention.

Hey all. Wild Acres Farm has officially sold the last of our farm stock and we do not currently have any plans on obtaining anymore animals in the near future (with the exception of hens). I want to personally thank everyone who has been apart of WAF over the past 16 years! I grew-up with my 4-H and horse show families and learned so much from the animals and the people. I have never met nicer people in my life than I did through raising animals. The small farm world is a community like no other - from the fair, to horse show circuits all over the east coast, to MareStare, answering our endless questions at all hours of the night, assisting with births (and even saving one of my mares thanks to a telephone call in the middle of the night from Europe!), I truly cannot express enough how grateful I am to have grown up on a farm. I will always cherish the time spent with my mom over 8+ hour drives hauling horses, longhorns, and goats, 3am births, all nighters trying to save various babies, and of course the best week of the year for a 4-Her - fair! She showed horses and lambs along side me in the ring and always worked her magic behind the scenes handling paperwork and keeping track of which pig was next to the wash racks, and always made sure she was ringside when it was my turn to show. My dad built paddocks, even when my bull, Bodacious, was so determined to destroy every pen (and some shelters) we had, he set up extensive cameras throughout the farm so we could watch births not just from the house, but from anywhere in the world (I watched one of our mares deliver all the way from the Galapagos!), he drove the RV all over the east coast so we could have a "home" during shows, and he fed the animals every day when I left everyone for college and adult life - even though he would leave notes such as "Damnit, Jim, I am a computer nerd, not a farmer" on our white boards in the barn. I am truly blessed to have grown up at Wild Acres Farm and to have such incredibly supportive parents. I just wanted to send out a huge 'Thank you!' to every single one of you that has been apart of our farm family. I would not trade a single moment of the blood, sweat, tears, and so much joy that went into WAF. Thank you all!

xoxo,
Jo

DIY Toys For Goats To Keep Them Busy

Some great ideas!!

Animals require a lot of care and attention, but also dedicated toys and playtime. So while finding the perfect toy for a small pet can be an easy job, when it comes to other domesticated animals, the task becomes harder. For instance, have you ever seen a toy for goats displayed in a pet store? The...

We've welcomed two sets of twins over the last couple days at Wild Acres Farm 😃 ....

Pretty sure the white tri-colored and eye patch with icy blue eyes is naturally polled. His twin, white with tan markings, also has the beautiful blue eyes but thinking he'll have horns.

The cinnamon brown with white and black markings buck stuck his tongue at me! Lol! The goof! 😝 His twin is the only doeling in the group. She is a fawn coloring with white markings. Both have brown eyes and will be horned. More pictures will be posted later ...

WAF Spock (MGR registration pending)

He is horned with brown eyes, mostly white and black collar, ears and facial markings, and black shoes (DOB 2/28/2015). He was one of a set of triplets (and of course his sibs are James T. Kirk and Lt. Uhura!) I expect he will be medium size when fully grown.

He is available as an gorgeous buck for $225 - but time is limited! In the next 2-3 our unsold bucklings will lose their family jewels :)

The Goat Duplex (we call the "Taj Mahal") is open for business. Although we still have some minor work to do, like wiring the extra lighting and outlets, we have opened the area to the goats. They can enter the upper level deck and house from the back stairs or the front stairs. We added an under cover feeding area under the bridge leading to the back stairs. Both upper and lower lodging areas can open on both ends to allow for easy cleaning (I'll have to take photos with those open at some point). The top roof has "skylights" to allow natural light in.

We have been working on a new goat house the has some how turned into a duplex with a wrap around deck, skylights and it's own top floor rear entrance. We added a bridge and stairs to the rear paddock that allows those goats to use the top of the house and the bottom is used by the goats in the front paddock.
