HOME OF OLD WEST ZANE GREY
Rich & Cheryl Austin
We have lived in Cottonwood, California since 1978, we are originally from Southern California. We came when our 2 sons were still young, 8 and 10 years old, to live in the country vs. the big city. We moved from a 65' x 110' lot to 21 acres in the rolling hills. We started with every animal you could imagine, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, goats, pigs, turkeys, cows and horses. We since grew out of that and in December of 2001 discovered the Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys. We started 2 jennets just to be pets. We now have 25 donkeys
We have 2 Granddaughters, Ashley 25 and Shaylee 19, and our Grandson, Kelton 11 yrs. You can see them all on the Grandbabies page.
Our first snow 12/7/13. From our deck. Beautiful and magical.
