Mini Farm Animals
Winchester Creek Farm is a family-owned and operated, 20-acre farm with rolling green pastures surrounded by the majestic Smoky Mountains. We raise adorable alpacas and a variety of mini farm animals — horses, cows, donkeys, and even a pig. We really enjoy sharing our farm and our love and knowledge of animals with others.

Queen Francine (Frannie) is our funniest and most curious girl. She and Muriel were rescued from a very bad place by some wonderful ladies who allowed us the privilege of bringing them to our farm to live with us. Frannie is the first to greet us everyday and will run across the pasture to come say hello. She loves the water and always has her head or her legs in the water buckets. She has the biggest heart and is the one to give comfort to the herd. She is a black Huacaya.
Muriel is a white Suri Alpaca and is Frannie’s best friend. The two of them have been through a lot together. We feel so blessed to have her living here with us. She’s a girl that knows nothing about giving people space; she gets so close sometimes you can feel her breath. She loves people and just cannot get close enough.
Seraphina is the matriarch of the herd. She’s very alert and always a bit aloof due to her wanting to make sure everyone in the herd is safe. She’s a dark fawn Huacaya Alpaca. Angel and Gabriella are her beautiful daughters.
Angel is a lot like her mother Seraphina in wanting to stay back and be a bit more cautious. She’s a beautiful fawn Huacaya Alpaca that has done really well in the show ring. She has gorgeous fiber that is getting better as she matures. Angel really makes sure to take care of her little sister Gabriella and Babycakes.
Gabriella is the most adorable little girl with big sparkling eyes. She gets visibly excited to get a treat and loves to make noises to show her happiness. She’s Seraphina’s daughter and Angel’s little sister. She’s a white Huacaya Alpaca with gorgeous fiber.
Baby Cakes is our little hippie girl. She’s so laid back and always looking like she doesn’t have a care in the world. She’s a white Suri Alpaca that looks like she has dreadlocks. Her best friend is Gabriella who is about her same age.
Windy is the newest member of our farmily and is a fawn Suri Alpaca. She’s a quiet and kind girl with a very dainty ladylike personality. She’s our politest alpaca and the most patient. She’s done well in the show ring and loves showing off her beauty.
SweetHot has not come to the farm yet, but will be later this year. She’s been winning shows for her beauty and her fleece. She’s a gorgeous dark brown Suri Alpaca. We can’t wait for her to arrive here and meet you.
Breeeze is a gorgeous fawn Huacaya Alpaca who comes from a long line of famous family members. She hasn’t arrived on the farm yet, but we’re hoping she’ll be here sometime early next year. We feel very honored to have her join our herd.
Candy Spots is as adorable as her name. She’s a young Suri Alpaca that we think will be a beautiful rose gray as she matures. She comes from a long line of gorgeous alpacas with beautiful fiber. We can’t wait to see what she does in the show ring next Spring. We’ve heard she loves water and being sprayed with the hose – sounds like her and Frannie are going to be in competition for those water sprays.
Jackson is a Mini Belted Galloway who never got his belt, but he’s just perfect to us. He’s a gentle, and sweet steer who loves to have his head scratched and his photo taken.
Kitty Kat is a Mini Belted Galloway who is a little shy, but loves people almost as much as she loves her Jackson. She enjoys sunning in the pasture on warm days and getting treats.
Baby Bug is a Mini Scottish Highland who was born very, very tiny. She needed a home where she could be spoiled and cared for – we’re so glad it’s ours. She’s a very curious girl who really enjoys hanging out with people and getting lots of attention.
Herbie is a Harlequin Mini Lop bunny. He loves his treats – his favorite are crunchy sweet potato sticks. Herbie is the happiest when he is playing with his ball with the bell in it and making lots of noise. He gives kisses and will beg for treats.
Clover is a Mini Lionhead Bunny. She has the craziest hair, so needs it brushed to keep her looking pretty. Clover is a shy but curious little girl who loves carrots. She is very quiet and would rather watch Herbie show off than do it herself.
Milton is a Valais x Horned Dorset cross sheep. He’s the biggest cuddle bug and he thinks he’s a dog. Milton is very affectionate and will follow you anywhere. His favorite treat is Wheat Thins and he knows a few tricks he likes to show off sometimes to get more treats.
Hans & Franz are twin brothers and are inseparable. They are Valais x Scottish Blaceface sheep. These two boys adore people and their companion dogs. They love napping all snuggled up together in the barn under the fans. Animal crackers are their favorite treat.
Dolly and Norman are our mini donkeys and they are a couple for life. Dolly is the gray one with a cross on her back and Norm is our “polka dotted” handsome guy. They joined the farm together when they were just six months old and have been inseparable ever since. They love to talk to each other across the pasture — the cutest donkey braying you’ll ever hear.
Magic is the only gelding of our mini horse herd. We lovingly call him our Fabio because of the confidence he has around the ladies. He’s a pinto mini horse and is therapy certified. He loves wearing hats and will actually pose with them on.
Raven is a mini horse and is a leopard spotted beauty. She actually changes coloring in the winter and the spring depending on the thickness of her coat. She’s our Beyoncé of the horses. She’s always striking a pose and has a beautiful mane and tail. Raven is very much in love with Magic, so you rarely see him without her.
Sweetie is our adorable little Pinto mini with the biggest heart and gentlest spirit. She loves playing mom to Ember and Gypsy Rose, even though she’s only 6 months older than Ember. Sweetie is therapy certified and just loves meeting people.
Ember is the most curious and funny Appaloosa mini you’ll ever meet. She’s very confident and runs like a little race horse with her tail in the air when she’s released into the pasture. She is in therapy training and doing very well.
Gypsy Rose is the newest member of our mini horse herd. She’s also a Pinto mini who Sweetie and Ember just love. She’s very calm and gentle. She will also be trained as a therapy horse.
Penelope is a Mini Juliana pig and is as cute as can be. She knows lots of tricks, including playing the piano and loves to hang out with our English Bulldogs in the house. She’s the sweetest and smartest girl who will do anything for Cheerios or apple slices.
Frankie & Charlie are Maremma Sheepdogs and are brothers. They have lived with our alpacas since they were puppies. They take their job of protecting our alpacas from predators and harm very seriously. The alpacas adore them and can be found cuddling with them in the barn.
Lily is a Maremma Sheepdog and hangs out with Wolfie and the sheep. She’s our escape artist and can climb any fence she wants to if she feels like she needs to roam the farm. She is very protective of “her” sheep and makes sure Wolfie does his job too.
Wolfie is a big hearted boy who plays with the sheep and makes sure they are happy. He is an Anatolian Shepherd. He’s learning from Lily that he needs to do his protection work too, so the sheep stay safe. Wolfie loves people, once he’s introduced properly, and will almost melt into hugs.
Sam is our official Farm Greeter. He’s a tuxedo Goldendoodle that loves everyone and everything he meets. He’s a very happy boy and smiles and cuddles to show his affection. Sam is training to be a certified therapy dog and also learning lots of tricks along the way.
