Meet the Magick Moon Family

Farm Pets

We try to run our farm as efficiently as possible which means that all of the animals have a purpose or a job. 

There are dogs to protect from predator threats such as coyotes, bobcats, skunks, weasels, and even an occasional bear. 

Our cats live in the barn and keep any small rodents at bay, this is important because where there is grain and animal food, there are mice. 

We do not currently raise rabbits for meat, but rabbit poo is one of the best garden fertilizers on the market.  Our three girl bunnies are here to provide that and plenty of entertainment and love.

We also have goats and chickens that we are raising to sell.

Sochi and Cami came with us to the farm so they were technically the first “farm animals” to arrive on the scene.  They have loved every minute of farm life.  

Sochi’s favorite summertime spot is right in the middle of the creek.  Although we have two other girls that are much bigger than she is, Sochi maintains her role as leader of the pack.  She wants to be involved in everything and always gets that big ol nose scratched.   She is the peacemaker among the others and does not tolerate any two animals fighting or showing aggression.  

Cami hangs out with Sochi and keeps her active but mostly loves to blaze new trails up the mountain.  She can be heard deep in the woods alerting the others to possible oncoming predators.   Cami is the perimeter guard but when she is off duty, she can be found napping in the sunshine by the garden.  

The next dogs to arrive on the scene were Daphne and Drago.  They are Maremma sheepdogs.  Bred for thousands of years to be guardians of sheep, goats, and other domestic animals.   Daphne and Drago spend their days with the does or girl goats.  Occasionally, they will take a romp in the woods just to check things out, but these two are never far away wherever the goats are.   

Dolly came to us when we were in need of a guardian for the bucks, or boy goats.  She is a pyranese/antolian mix.  Although she decided not to live in the pasture with them, she does a great job of keeping any potential threats, such as coyotes, away.  Dolly has also befriended our elderly neighbors and has taken on their yard as part of her territory.  If Mr. Harold is out tending to his pond, you can bet Dolly is by his side.

Our latest canine addition is Pheobe.  Pheobe is mostly Anatolian with a little Pyranese, but most people think she looks like a bear.  If you know about livestock guardian dogs, you know they are very independent breeds and we humans are here to provide food and an occasional scratch on the head.  Pheobe chose the job of porch guardian.  From there she can watch over the front of the property and is ready to come to aid the others in the event of a predator threat.

Ginger came to us by way of Hawaii.  The Bailey’s adopted her there but could not find pet-friendly housing at one of their (assignments?)  so, she came to live on the farm.   Ginger loves a good belly rub, exploring the farm, and of course, sleeping on her favorite cushion.

Sparticus, or “Sparty Cat” was found as a tiny kitten and quickly made her way into our hearts and home.  She is spunky and adventurous.  Watch out, she’ll trick you into petting her just so she can sink her teeth into your hand!  Sparticus is teaching the new farm kittens to be great hunters.

Onyx, Ruby, and Emma were orphans found at the local feed store barely a week old.   We gave them bottles and cleaned their tushies and now they are big, bold hunters and huntresses.  They work hard and are ready and willing to snuggle with us on the front porch in the evening as we watch the beautiful sunset.

We have three bunnies on the farm.  Bippity, Boppity, and Boo live in the Rabbitat.  They are a bit spoiled as far as rabbits go –
but we love them oh so much! 

There's so much more to see over at our Magick Moon Farm Store!
