Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Farm Animals

Almost five years ago, we moved here with two dogs. Today, we are over run with farm animals.  Somedays we have no idea what we are doing with them but we are learning as we go.  Some of our animals are for pure enjoyment and some of them are for food.  We take care of all of them to the best of our ability, giving them a wonderful home while they live at the Rockin' S~Squared Farm.


Horses

Riviera Xtra Xtra is Jonah's Hanoverian show jumper.  
She's a gorgeous mare standing at 17.3 hands high.  
Yes, she's a big girl!



Denero Doll but we all call her D.  
She's a beautiful little registered paint.  
Currently being leased as a jumper but should be home soon.
