At Wyld Acres, we strive to mimic nature, as much as possible, as we raise these animals we’ve been entrusted with! From our colorful Nigerian Dwarf and Mini Nubian goats, to the adorable Harlequin rabbits, and the bouncy Australian Shepherds, we believe that God made them and His way is best!
Resorting to chemical treatments only in emergencies, we rely on herbs and essential oils for natural antibiotics, dewormers, wound care, etc. We do not give any vaccinations, nor do we do any alterations such as disbudding, castrating, docking tails, or removing dewclaws.
Our goats frolic in 3 acres of trees, shrubs, and grasses. We supplement with grass hay and alfalfa and do not feed any grain except to the does being milked. Those does are given locally grown whole oats, whole barley, beet shreds, whole dried peas, and black oil sunflower seeds. They have 24/7 access to 22 individual minerals so they can self-supplement to balance their own nutrition. Both of our bucks are polled and we breed for naturally hornless goats but we love the little ones that have horns too, just the way God made them! We allow all moms to raise their babies and only bottle feed if necessary. Bucklings can be weaned and go to new homes at 8 weeks and doelings can leave at 10 weeks old.
Harlequin rabbits are a beautiful calico breed that make for amazing pets, pelts, meat, or show. They live in a colony, making nests for their babies underground in burrows, eating grass, alfalfa, oats, barley, peas, and BOSS. We provide kelp meal for extra nutrients and hope to expand our mineral buffet for them soon, as well. The rabbits are loved on daily and ready for their new homes between 6 to 8 weeks old.
Mustang and Ivy, our bonded pair of pure Australian Shepherds, free range our property during the day and sleep in the barn overnight. They protect our animals from predators and give love to all visitors! They have had 3 litters of puppies and make the most gorgeous, sweet dogs. We are planning to allow one more litter before we retire from puppies and just enjoy their presence. We do not dock tails or remove dewclaws. We do not vaccinate and use only natural dewormer.The puppies are played with constantly, exposed to chickens, cats, goats, and rabbits, and are ready for new homes at 7 weeks old.
We love our animals and take our responsibility very seriously. Please contact Amy if we can help you find your next goat, puppy or bunny to love!
