What you'll do

We have lots of animals to feed around here. We will have a country breakfast and then feed the sheep, goats and horses. Once all the animals are happy and fed, we have the opportunity to work with the horses. Catching a horse from the pastures, saddling, and riding, it is the high point of the day around here. This usually all happens before lunch. Afterwards, there is 127 acres to explore and enjoy hiking and sitting on the dock. Once we end our trail rides, you will have the opportunity to walk through the horse pastures, play with the dogs, and go hunting for eggs. There will be goats to milk and sheep to herd.
Other things to note
You will be living on a ranch. All of our animals are outside. You will get used to the sounds of all the critters, but do not be scared if an animal approaches you. They just want some love!

Meet your host, Sandy

Host on Airbnb since 2019
  • Identity verified
I have been running Sunshine Acres Ranch since 1986. Riding and training horses has been a lifelong passion of mine. We operate like a dude ranch. I frequently host WWOOFers on the farm as volunteer help feeding my many animals. We offer trail rides, goat milking, sheep herding, and fishing in any of our 6 ponds. I give horseback riding lessons, weddings, and massage and oil therapy to any who are interested. Nutritional counseling is also available.

Diverse animals

Meet over 300 kinds of animals, from alpacas to zebras.

Where you'll be

When you first arrive on our property - look out! You might be greeted by a beautiful peacock or a nosy horse. Animals are a-plenty here. There's never a dull moment and there's always something new to do or see. I can't guarantee there will be a baby animal that needs a bottle feeding, a goat that will need milking, or a birthing that you can witness, but anything is possible during your stay. We hope you'll enjoy the farm life as much as we do!
