Small Animal Farm Lawton Stables Small Animal Farm

For a day out to remember, why not bring all the family to visit our small animal farm which is free to all visitors.

We have a wonderful collection of small animals, including goats, sheep, miniature donkeys, miniature cows, pot-bellied pigs, alpacas, shetland ponies and chickens.

Come and meet these delightful animals yourselves.

Our animal farm is fully accredited by the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). DHEC regulations prohibit feeding the animals with any food not provided by the farm.  For this reason, we ask that you do not bring your own food to feed the animals.  If you have food for the horses (carrots or apples), you may feed the ponies or the Clydesdale (Harley) in the front paddock, or the trail horses in the paddock adjacent to the animal farm. For those who wish to feed the animals, a handful of food can be purchased for 50 cents (please bring your own containers).

We ask that you do not feed the working horses and ponies (any horse or pony wearing a saddle).
