We want to share the unconditional love of all our 4-legged friends! They provide us with so much happiness and joy and we love sharing them with the world!

You will also learn some of the interesting facts about miniature horses and donkeys, alpacas, cows, our sheep and hinny, their required care, as well as playing some trivia throughout the hour, learning some fun facts as we go! (I used to be a school teacher, still love to teach as well as learn! ;-)

Discussing the benefits of equine (horse/donkey) therapy will also be a topic of our experience, while sharing some stories of how our therapy program (Happy Hooves) benefits others in the community.

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 and in my years growing up on the farm, I had the joy of showing many cattle throughout my young life. My other passion is to give back to the community. This organization, Happy Hooves, allows me to do just that. Most all of our animals are rescued, & 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 to share!

It was an Amazing experience. Jesse really loves his animals and I really enjoyed how the animals warm up with Jesse. I love the miniature horses, alpacas, Annie the dog, Black Betty the sheep, and especially to see the donkeys play!! Jesse’s love for animals is infectious and will definitely lift your spirits up. I will definitely go visit Jesse’s animals again. Thank you, Jesse. Made my DAY!!! 🐐🦙🐄🐂🐎🐎

BEYOND EXPECTATION!! 5 star+!! Highly recommend it to anyone!! I really appreciate Jesse put so much great effort into rescuing those animals and taking care of them so nicely on the farm. You can tell his genuine love and passion for animals, and he is making a real impact globally. I had such a great time seeing all those cute animals (my favorite one is Shiba, and I found donkeys very are cute, too). Also, I learned the difference between mule & hinny (haha). I will come back for Jesse's experience again. His Airbnb guest house is almost finished, now I have one more reason to visit Phoenix. Thank you, Jesse! :)

coolio! got to see and learn about horses, donkeys, and the hinny! donkeys r cooler v horses and smarter! cute ones w/big eyes! the cows were funny! jesse told me that even my brother could be eligible for equine therapy despite his aggression and low functioning status. need to check w/program if interested. the most surprising thing was that jesse's a full-time realtor which helps him pay for the expensive maintainence! (my former classmate +his wife r realtors and they r much older than me. live in modest house bought at phoenix prices.) branching out to hospitals too!

Jesse's passionate explanation about all the lovely animals -Coco, Marshmallow, Bella, Shiva, and all the other friends as well :) - is really outstanding and interesting. If you want to have a time of being mentally healed and being entertained by all the funny characteristics and behaviors of the adorable animals at the same time, this is the perfectly right one for you to experience. Pay a visit to Jesse's P&M farm in Arizona and have this precious experience of engaging with the exceptionally kind and passionate host and also with all the lovely animals :)

Fantastic visit to Jesse's mini farm! We booked this to introduce some adventure from home for our kids during the pandemic, but we grownups enjoyed it just as much as they did. Our kids are grade 2 and grade 4 and both loved the personalized introductions to the animals and the tour of the farm. Lots of opportunity to ask questions and lots of interactivity. Really was the next best thing to being there in person. Thank you Jesse!
