Zebras

We are the official "Guards" of Blue Hills Ranch. We watch over the cattle and the baby calves, and stand guard to let the other animals know if we see any possible trouble. We are a little shy but getting better at letting you see us.  

We are all named after music stars

Elvis, Garth, Dolly, Wynonna, Naomi, Salt, Pepper, Patsy, Madonna, Pink

I used to live inside the farmhouse but now I hop around the barn yard. I came to Blue Hills Ranch at just 6 weeks old.

I enjoy playing with the pigs and laying under my tree.

Mini Donkeys

We were the first two exotic animals here at the sanctuary. Soon after, we welcomed Monica, then along came Ross.

We help our zebras stand guard and protect our other animals from any harm, but we will also seek

you out for some treats.

We may be small but we are mighty! The other animals don't know it, but we pretty much run the place.

Angus Cows

I am a special little brownish-red girl cow that was donated to the ranch in October 2020.  I am blind and needed a good forever home.  I was named after a special little boy named Corbin "James" who is our favorite visitor here. 

 

My mom is my guide to the world and is very protective of me.  I am still learning all the new sounds and smells of the different animals.

Axis Deer

There are about 50 of us at Blue Hills Ranch. Our favorite game is hide and seek. If you see us, we will go hide again, because you are always "it".

We are the prettiest deer out there because of our unique white spots.

Lilly

I am a King Charles. I was named after Lilly Munster from the TV show The Munsters. I was born in Texas but grew up in California, but I am for sure the Princess of the ranch.  I love my walks to find bugs and frogs, and I enjoy napping anywhere I want.  Geneva is my big sister and we have grown up together since I was a baby.  She's my favorite here.
