I am the founder and chair of the non-profit "Happy Hooves". We are an organization that provides horse and donkey therapy to those in need. From Alzheimer's and dementia, to stroke patients, to children with autism and special needs, as well as those suffering from depression and PTSD. Having grown up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, (relocating to Arizona in 1999)I have always had a passion for animals. I have shown many cattle throughout my young life and have a passion to give back to the community. This organization allows me to do just that. Most all of our animals are rescued, and the most recent two have come from a kill pen from Texas. Sharing this experience with others, teaching them the gift of healing from horses and donkeys, is truly something I love!

    I visited Happy Hooves with my 4 grandchildren. It was Miina’s bday. She loved it and received recognition of her bday. The kids are aged 4-8, it could not have been more fun. Jesse was incredible his love for the animals shine through and his assistant Sharon could not have been nicer the farm is extremely well run and animals are very well cared for. I will return again for sure. The kids had donuts, hot chocolate and received some great parting gifts. I enjoyed brushing the animals too!

    We had an exceptional time on our experience. The kids loved the animals and Jesse was kind, patient and great at telling us the story about the animals. The kids loved the interaction allowed with the animals. I would recommend this as a very memorable family experience.

    Wow. This experience far exceeded our expectations. I am 50 years old and took my 13 year old son. I thought that we would be going to a "petting zoo+" of sorts, but what we experienced was so so so much more. We had a complete hands-on cuddle experience with each animal on Jesse's farm. We were able to go at our own pace and Jesse was there the whole time showing, explaining, and taking our photos. I sat on the ground next to mini donkeys, mini horses, mini cows, little alpacas, and a sheep. We were able to pet the the animals, take them for walks around the yard. Jesse is an amazing and kind host. We were joined by another couple who were professionals in their late 20s; They both said flat out that Jesse's farm was the best experience they have had while on vacation in Phoenix. Oh, and if all this was not enough, Jesse feeds you yummy snacks and drinks. And then offers a surprise gift for all participants at the end. You must go. We loved it so much that we just sent the farm a donation to help feed the animals (the farm is a non profit organization). PS: For those worried about germs/cleanliness....The animals were all clean. Their fur/manes were in lovely, soft condition. Any pooping they did before/during our almost 3 hour cuddle-fest with them was quickly cleaned up with Jesse's mega pooper-scooper. Jesse keeps the farm and the animals in beautiful condition.

    This experience was one of the highlights of our trip. Jesse is a wonderful host and his farm is absolutely delightful. The animals are precious and so cute. It was a great experience full of lots of hugs, kisses and smiles. Would highly recommend this outing for kids of all ages. We were with our young adult kids 20 and 21 and they loved the experience and so did we.
