We live on a 41 acre ranch on Highway 3 in
Hayfork, CA. It has 2 year-round creeks, 3
wells, a remodeled 1890's era ranch cabin,
a dirt floor garage, 2 barns, and a pump
house. We have named our ranch Dancing
Goat Ranch, in honor of the antics of our
first goat, Banjo.
Yurt: We have
a 30 foot yurt, which we use as a guest
house, as well as to play acoustic
music, do art, and to meditate.
We have 2 "traditional" pets: 2 cats - a
house cat and a barn cat.
Farm animals: We have 5 farm
animal pets: 3 Nigerian Dwarf Goats, 2
mixed breed sheep (look like Katahdins),
and 1 llama. We lost our first llama to a
dog attack and our current llama is his
son. In 2012, we lost a sheep and our
favorite goat, Banjo (that is him on the
photo) to a pitbull dog attack. New baby
goats to arrive soon.
this page are photos of wildlife we have
seen in the area, from deer to frogs.

many interesting bugs, we had to give them
their own page! If you like seeing
the individual hairs on a spider's legs,

winters are generally mild, a cold snap is
20 degrees. We usually have at least one
intense snowstorm (and multiple power
outages) that yield beautiful photos.

family and friends to show off our
