Percy the Père David's Deer
Percy is a bottle raised Père David's Deer and is the official Goodwill Ambassador for Valkyrie Ranch. His best friends are the mini horses, and he gives the very best "deer kisses." (Which are a lot log dog kisses, but with a lot more slobber.)

Catherine Campbell
Catherine is a true animal whisperer. She owns and operates Cedar Creek Saddle Club here at Valkyrie Ranch, and she also befriends all the wild animals on the ranch. From the deer to alpacas, she has everyone eating out of her hand... literally.
