Note from Cowgirl Cheri: 

When you hire "The Farmyard Stock Show" for your special event, you get Cowgirl Cheri!  Who better than the zoo keeper to attend yer event?  I work all these events, tend my critters daily myself and am always willing to share with yer guests all I know of the care and raising of our animals to my kindred spirits. 

In the event that I am able to book one of our other petting zoo packages or pony rides at the same time, you can rest assured that only my "adult" farm and ranch raised kids or friends that I trust with my animals and yer guests will attend yer party.  Otherwise, you still get me.  <]:-)

Since I'm tending to the daily care of my critters, please forgive me if I don't respond to yer phone call in a timely manner.  My critters are like kids and they come first.  If you email me through my contact page I can send you the information you need ASAP. 

I truly appreciate yer business and look forward to help making yer event full of lasting sweet memories!

Buckets O' Love,

Cowgirl Cheri

THE FARMYARD follows "TEXAS STATE LAWS" and does have weight limits on all our Equine not to exceed 20% of their body weight.  To exceed this weight limit is considered animal abuse.  Please reserve a pony or horse that can accommodate your guests.  My larger ponies can carry up to 120#.  My horses can carry up to 200#(I have a Percheron X in training that will be able to help us out here soon).  With the exception of our newest additions, I have had all my riding ponies and horses for 10-28 years.  We love them very much and enjoy sharing them with your family and friends.  Sorry, they are not for sale, but most always available to bring smiles and fond memories to you and yours.  From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you for your business! 

Cowgirl Cheri, family & friends
