The Story Behind Blazing Saddles

Blazing Saddles in Fairhaven is a unique animal sanctuary operation, born out of the pure love that Keri Wilson and her family have for all animals.

What began as a pony party business that aimed to rescue horses and fund their care costs through birthday party entertainment, now has become a sanctuary for any and all animals in need.

To support the cost of the animals, Wilson created event entertainment involving animals and educational programs with hopes the local community would build a deeper love and connection to animals and nature.

Through those efforts, Little Patch of Heaven Sanctuary was born, a 501 (c) (3) pending operation created to assist in meeting the expenses of rescuing, fostering, caring for, and housing both farm and exotic animals through education programs and community support.

To continue giving animals of all kinds a beautiful life, Blazing Saddles hosts exciting events, and its Holiday Stroll will be a lovely toast to the holiday season.

What to Expect at the Holiday Stroll

Festive activities, sweet treats, and a beautifully decorated farm wait for those ready to ring in the holiday season. Take pictures with the Grinch and Santa, but don’t worry, they will be in separate barns for the little ones who may be scared of one or the other.

“You can look forward to feeding the animals, walking the decorated farm, taking pictures with Grinch and Santa, enjoying holiday crafts, shopping the Vendor shops, pony rides, and eating delectable holiday treats,” said the farm.

Tickets are available online now for the Annual Holiday Stroll at Blazing Saddles.
