REMINDER! 🌲WE ARE ACCEPTING REAL CHRISTMAS TREES FOR THE ANIMALS! 🌲
Taking down Christmas in your house? Feel free to drop your real tree — no tinsel— at the barn for the goats and other animals! (We cannot take wreaths).
To get to the barn, use the set of driveways just past the visitors center, if you are coming from Rte. 3 direction. (Coming from Adams direction, it's the set of driveways before the visitors center). Drive behind the big red shop- has big white overheard doors- and drop off the trees at the door to Magic's Stable. Thank you in advance from the goats, reindeer and camel! 🎄🌲

Remembering Teddy
By Ashley DeMar

If all dogs go to heaven,
then heaven must be Old McDonald’s Farm
(since that’s where all dogs want to go).
And a few –
only the luckiest,
or at least the most memorable,
get to call this Dog Paradise home.

Such an iconic dog was Teddy.
A dog among dogs, if you will.
Lauded for such legends as
“eating four pounds of gravel and living to do it again,”
“snagging snacks from the bottom of a stroller,”
“stealing a cheeseburger from an unsuspecting child,”
and having access to inarguably the best sniffs this side of the St. Lawrence.

All dogs are a joy and all dogs live a joyful life,
but a farm dog may have the most joyful of all.
The smells, the tastes, the furry friends, the belly rubs, the Mule rides –
as one former farm employee noted,
“You never knew how much space a dog could take up until you shared the front seat of a Mule with Teddy.”
And we were joy-full to know him.

There is never a good time to say goodbye to someone you love.
But when someone has lived a life as full and as loving as Teddy,
it begins to feel less like a goodbye
and more like a going home.

When someone has lived a life as full and as loving as Teddy,
it is with thanks we give him back.
Thank you, Lord, for giving us time with a soul as special as this.

May we all endeavor to live our lives with the freedom, the love
and the playful impulsivity of Teddy
(though maybe with a more discerning stomach).

So for now we will say goodbye,
but rest in full knowledge that somewhere
there are green fields and twilight sunsets,
slow chores and long walks in our future again.

Goodbye, Teddy –
we love you endlessly.

Reindeer: Did you know?!
As Santa’s reindeer prepare for their big flight around the world, their cousins, our own Sven and Jingle Bells, wanted to share some cool facts about their species!
• If fresh snow is present, reindeer prefer to eat snow instead of drinking fresh water.
• The nose of the reindeer is very vascular and plays an important role in regulating their body temperature in the cold months.
• Reindeer adapt to the Arctic’s endless summer light and winter dark by silencing their circadian clock.
• Intact male reindeer will lose their anterles before or during the first week of December. Castrated males and females retain their antlers until late winter/ early spring. So does that mean that Santa’s reindeer are all female, or maybe a combination of females and “fixed” males?
You can read more about these facts, and other cool tidbits from DocBott!

Bart is headed home! A neighbor found him!
Thank you to everyone for the shares and kind words. He’s a gentle, sweet dog, but when he gets on a scent, he loses his mind, and follows his nose instead of his brain.
Bart lives a life of luxury- he sleeps on a leather couch in front of a fireplace, and we try to keep our eyes on him constantly when he’s outside. He has a fenced in yard, and we can’t quite figure out where he is getting out! Hound dogs are not easy dogs!
We’ve also ordered a new upgraded Fi collar for tracking him, as his old collar stopped working.
Anyway, thank you to everyone for your help! ❤️❤️
