18 Wonderful And Simple Gifts For Homestead Animals

There is so much joy in exchanging gifts with loved ones and friends at Christmas time. We shop and shop in order to find the perfect gifts for our human friends, but what about our homestead animals? Have you considered giving gifts to them? They may not say “Thank You” but I bet they will appreciate it!

The biggest question would be what exactly would you even give an animal as a gift? It depends upon the animal. A dog may love a squeaky toy, but a cow would have no idea what it is. (unless you are Julie Murphree, of The Farm Wife, whose cow ‘Elvis’, loved beach balls!) Each gift should be tailored to the species. With that in mind here is a Christmas shopping list for your homestead animals.

 

Homestead animals deserve santa visits!

However, why not try one of the gifts below for a new way to pamper your canine friend this Christmas.

 

 

 

 

  • Ultimate Pawprint Keepsake Kit: A complete kit to transform your dog’s pawprint into a keepsake ornament you will treasure even after they cross the rainbow bridge.
