Success at the Spartan Stampede

Crowds lined up for Northfork’s baby bunnies and mini pigs last weekend at the Spartan Stampede Rodeo.

Visitors who came to the Northfork vendor booth had the chance to hold and pet the baby animals. Many visitors experienced the joy of interacting with baby bunnies and pigs for the first time.


Penelope, Northfork’s mini/potbelly pig cross, captured the attention and hearts of many rodeo attendees.

The baby bunnies were also a crowd favorite. Kids and adults of all ages enjoyed the chance to hold the soft, cuddly creatures.
