Hollow Creek Farm’s mission is to help stop the abuse and neglect of animals. We have permanent residents, a core pack of dogs and livestock that due to health or behavior issues have found Forever Homes here on the Farm.
This group has a purpose: show new animals how to behave and that humans are OK. The Permanent Residents are not available for adoption. But here’s a list of those who are:

Captain Tater – 2005. Tater was an owner surrender who was purchased from a pet store. has a hoof and a leg deformity that require frequent care. He is not in pain but does need special trimming on a regular basis. He enjoys being one of our core pack of dogs and lines up to greet visitors.
Tater has helped other organizations by participating in
“Kiss the Pig” fundraisers and educational functions.

JuJu – 2010. Juju is one happy pig now that she’s found her forever home. She enjoys watermelon, laps in the pool and naps with the dogs

Godot Perch – 2002. Perch was headed for slaughter for human consumption overseas and came to HCF with five other foals born to PMU mares.
PMU mares are made pregnant to provide urine used to produce replacement hormones for products including Premarin and Prempro.
Perch was quite a handful and not ready for adoption until he started a rigorous training program. He now enjoys playing soccer, tag, fetch, responds to voice commands and actually has problem-solving skills.
He stands about 16.3hh and is gentle as a lamb. His training will continue and he is our PMU Ambassador. He helps teach other horses that humans are not scary things. He is a Percheron X TB and is by far one of the smartest horses we have had the pleasure of spending time with.

Frank & Pigeon — 2008. Matched pair, obviously. They don’t go anywhere without each other. These two welcome new HCF fowl of all kinds and show them to the best perches on the farm. Hand-fed since their arrival, they are calm, cool, collected…unflappable. 
Sequoia – 2004. This roly-poly mare came in a snorting beast and now is gentle enough to plop any child or adult on her back.
Laid back and lazy, she gets along with all the new horses. She has done a wonderful job to help socialize the orphan foals that come in and is a companion to the senior and special needs horses.
She never turns down a treat. She stands approximately 15hh and is a Clydesdale-Arabian PMU foal that was heading for slaughter for human consumption overseas.
Moses – 2004. HEE-HAWWWW! Moses is a traveling kind of guy. He was actually a gift to an exotic animal breeding farm. Moses is smart. He can figure out how to get under/over/through ANY fence.
Moses actually loves dogs and his best buddy is Captain Tater the Pig. He will play tug-of-war with the dogs although his function here is to travel to schools and other organizations as an educational ambassador. His small size makes that much easier than bringing along a
full-sized donkey or horse. Pull into the farm and you will be greeted with a very, very loud HEE-HAWWWW!
Murphy – 2004. This little miniature horse was so ill upon arrival that he actually had to be brought into the house and slept in the bed for three days.
Oddly enough he seemed to enjoy having the TV on. He is now the pasture companion for Moses.
His function is to be a friend…all herd animals need a pasture companion to be truly content.


Orville
– 2001 & Allie BaBaaa – 2009. Orville has been with Hollow Creek Farm since he was a youngster. He was headed for auction and would have ended up on a dinner plate.
Allie BaBaaa arrived with a horrible eye infection and was very sick. Nursed back to health, she still lost site in one eye.  It doesn’t stop her from kicking up her heels all over the farm. She and Orville enjoy hiking with people and come when called and love attention and snacks, lots of snacks. They help rehabilitate feral and timid goats who come to HCF. Without their help we would not be as successful teaching new goats that humans will not harm them.

Sir Loin Porter Haus & Carlos Moogoya – 2007. These calves were rescued from a farm that was raising them as veal where they were held in confined pens and fed for human consumption.
Hollow Creek took them on as part of our education program for children to learn about humane farming practices.

Timmy, Bonnie & Elroy – 2007/2008/2009. They came from veterinarian clinics where citizens had brought them. Unfortunately, because of extensive human contact and contact with dogs, none are suited for release.The deer will come when called, enjoy attention from visitors and meander around the farm. They’ve helped people learn about the handling of more timid creatures and have taught us about prey animal behavior.
