Cow Cuddling and Horse Hugging

Are you ready to hop out of the fast lane and get back to nature? We are ready to show you, your family, and friends the simplicity of being outdoors with farm animals in beautiful surroundings. Take a deep breath of clean country air and settle in for a relaxing time while cuddling with a beautiful Brahma, or gently stroke and hug a gentle full size or mini horse.

Cow cuddling is not a fad, it is as old as animal husbandry has existed. Every farmer has nursed a sick animal back to health, bottle fed an orphaned foal or calf, even wrapped them in warm towels and brought them in the house to save a little precious life. The bond between animals and humans is profound, and our goal is to introduce our clients to this magical experience.

Other experiences

  • Yoga with the animals, taught by certified instructors
  • Pony Cart Rides
  • Birthday Parties (number of guests and parents limited to 10)
  • Overnight stays in a rustic but well equipped bunkhouse located over the barn at Brush Creek Farm

Who we are

Tanya Jones and her brother Travis met Lorel Hoffman through Tanya’s dog grooming business. Lorel recognized immediately that Tanya is a true animal lover by the way she bonded with Bass, Lorel’s beautiful but sometimes stubborn American Cocker Spaniel, a difficult breed to properly groom.

From there they became fast friends, discovering their mutual love for horses and all sorts of animals. Travis has worked ranches all of his life, both cattle and exotics in Texas, and he moved to Northwest Arkansas to be with his family and work their farm. Our farms are close by each other, just East of Goshen.

The three of us have ridden all of our lives, and take great pride in our animals. Some are rescues and some are born and raised on our farms.

We look forward to showing you around our beautiful farms in the Ozarks.

Meet and cuddle

Meet and cuddle with the star of the Jones farm, Uno. Uno lives at the Jones farm; you can meet and cuddle with him by appointment. He has a buddy on the way, soon there will be two Brahmas to share the love!

Greet the horses

Greet the horses with a pocket full of apples as you get to know them, and they you.  We have full size, mini horses and ponies at both farms.  We will match you with the appropriate horse depending upon your individual needs. Please note that we do not offer riding lessons or trail rides.

The bunkhouse

We welcome you to stay overnight in our rustic bunkhouse situated above the barn.  The bunkhouse is well equipped, sleeps 2 and offers a kitchen, bathroom with shower, living area and second floor deck.

Rustic tin sets the tone through the bunkhouse with many elegant touches.  The views are inspiring to the soul and quieting to the heart, offering an ideal comforting get-away.
