Meet the Barnyard Animals

Meet the Newest Members of the Alisal Ranch Family: A Barnyard Exclusive

Welcome to a special feature on the Alisal Ranch blog! Today, we’re taking you behind the scenes to meet the newest members of our barnyard family. Thanks to our dedicated caretakers, we’ve got the inside scoop on some delightful new additions that are bringing extra joy and a sense of closer connection to everyone who visits. Whether you’re planning to visit our California resort this season or just love hearing about life on the ranch, join us as we delve into the stories that make Alisal Ranch truly special.

Meet Sweet Pea, Tori, and Tina—the newest members of the Alisal Barnyard!

Sweet Pea: A 2-month-old lamb who adores human company, Sweet Pea was born on January 9th and came to us as a bottle baby. After being rejected by her mother, our wranglers have stepped in to provide her with the care and feeding she needs. You’ll often find her frolicking across the property or spending time with her bunny pals in our bunny room. Don’t hesitate to ask an attendant to introduce you to Sweet Pea and experience the warmth of our fluffy friend!


Tori and Tina: These pony sisters are the new darlings of Alisal Ranch. Brought back from Fort Worth, Texas, by our Director of Equine Operations, Brandon, these two have quickly settled in. Once they’re fully acclimated, guests will have the chance to lead them around and groom them in the barnyard. Feel free to ask our attendants to meet Tori and Tina anytime!

Further Exciting Developments

We’re thrilled to announce the construction of the Buckaroo Barnyard! This new, sectioned-off area within our barnyard is designed with our gentlest creatures in mind, perfect for little ones not quite ready to meet our larger goats, ponies, and pigs. It’s not just about the animals—the Buckaroo Barnyard will offer convenient access to our activity room for crafts and to our chicken coop for egg gathering, streamlining the flow of traffic and enhancing the Alisal Ranch experience.

Your Invitation to Alisal Ranch

We hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peek into our barn and the heartwarming stories of our newest family members! Whether it’s your first visit or you’re returning for another adventure, we invite you to experience the magic of our luxury dude ranch.
