Thor the Thumper is our resident sweet heart. This cuddly bunny loves to snuggle and thumb when he hops! This guy is a fabulous people pleaser who is always learning new tricks!
Sunny is a silly and personable horse. He loves snuggles and he licks like a dog!

He is fantastic at making kids laugh and feel loved
