We need your help. Sunflower Farms ~ an Educational Farm Setting, working alongside SonFlower Stables, is a not-for-profit organization. Covid 19 has caused our doors to be closed, and with this being said expenses and costs for the upkeep of our farm animals continue on a daily basis… We need our community’s help. If you are a farmer that grows hay or a neighbor wanting to volunteer and help with our furry friends please consider this adventure of Hope…

Sponsoring a horse is $300.00 a month, this will also provide and include an opportunity to meet and greet the horse or farm animals.

*Hay – $150.00

*Straw – $80.00

*All are per month per horse.

We also will offer a Sponsorship for $100.00 a month to come and be a Buddy to a horse on scheduled days and times.

Thank you so much, from all of us at SonFlower Farms.

What does an Educational Farm look like?

It all starts from the ground up… Yes literally from cultivating the earth underneath our feet within the ground and planting flowers for our bees into magical miracles of healing, sustainable, useable, eatable hope, like honey and veggies to sustain our health…

Horses & Human
Limbic Loop Connection

The Limbic System, located right under the cerebrum, is responsible for the feeling of emotions, behaviour, motivation, and long-term memory. It is remarkably similar to that found in horses.

“Both horses and humans have limbic systems that are remarkably similar, and both are highly social and need contact with others for their own neural regulation.”

Because of these similarities within the limbic system, working with horses from a therapeutic standpoint allows the horses to relate to the limbic system in humans. Since the horse does not have a largely developed neocortex (analytical brain), it enables them to come from a nonjudgmental place reflecting others behaviors. They respond to what is happening in the moment – based on comfort and safety. The natural state of rest within the horse species combined with being nonjudgmental can create a healing space of calm and trust. This allows limbic revision to take place – a way for a person to safely create new neurological pathways of how to respond to certain emotional patterns.
