Barnyard

Behind our store we have a barnyard to give the public a chance to get up close to and enjoy farm animals. We have a variety ranging from chickens and geese, to goats, sheep and pigs.

HersheyMeet Hershey, the hinny. A hinny is a cross between a horse and donkey, but slightly different than a mule. A mule's father is a donkey and it's mother, a horse. A hinny's father is a horse and it's mother, a donkey. With equines, they tend to take on their mother's conformation and build, so a mule is taller and has a more horse-like body. A hinny is smaller and built much like a donkey.

We have several rare breed animals here on the Sheepfarm, specifically Gulf Coast Sheep which are an old breed, native to this area, as well as a Dexter steer, named Chip.

Male goats (called "bucks") as well as female goats (called "does") can have both horns and beards. Some goats Ladyalso have wattles, which are simply a natural "decoration" on a goat's neck and have no function. You can see one of our goats here, Lady, sporting horns, a beard, and wattles.
