The Mahaffie Animals Miss Seeing their Friends! 

  • Write a Letter to the AnimalsHistorians say the original socially distant activity was probably letter writing. (Ok, we just made that one up.)
  • During the Mahaffies' era, writing letters was about the best way to stay in touch over a long distance, but also over short distances.
  • At that time, the United States Post Office had not yet been established and mail was run on private routes-you guessed it-stagecoaches! 

If you would like to write a letter to one of the animals on the farm, they will find a staff member who can take dictation and write back to you. Our animals interested in having pen pals are: 

  • Levi and Samson, the oxen
  • Burt, Lady, Goliath, Chip, and Ace, the horses
  • Tom and Huck, the goats
  • Smoothie, Daisy, and Petunia, the sheep
  • Ashley, the rooster

They also appreciate pretty pictures and will display them with pride.
