Welcome to Kokopelli Acre Online
Thanks for visiting!
Welcome to our farm.
We are located in Norco, a rural island located in sunny Southern California. We raise
and show ARBA registered Mini Rex rabbits and NPGA registered African Pygmy goats.
We breed for quality & correctness. Quality stock usually available. We can help you
choose something to fit your breeding and showing needs. If we don't have it,
we will help you find someone who does. Please sign our guestbook at the bottom of this page.
Mini Rex Rabbits
Grand Champion Gan Neonna, senior broken castor doe, with 4 GC legs including 2 BIS from the Reno show on 6/17/01. She will begin her breeding career after the ARBA Convention. Her brother, GC Gan Novice also has 4 GC legs. Neonna & Novice are out of Gan Haven's "magic" NAM/PAC cross, notable for producing top herd sires. Novice is very small. He is an energetic herd sire that throws good type & pattern.
We specialize in broken castor & red but are working on blacks & opals. We hope to add blue soon, as well. Our junior black buck, Gan Barclay just received his third GC leg. They are all BOV or BOSV. One more as a senior & he will be finished!
We breed for excellence and strive to keep a small high quality herd. Therefore, you will be able to purchase high quality stock from us. Let us help you get started on the right foot and develop a plan for success.
Due to Gan Haven's herd dispersal sale we have recently acquired some incredible foundation stock. We have acquired four new herd sires and eleven does. These animals are carefully linebred to ensure the best quality offspring. We will have castor, broken castor, black and red available in December and a limited number of reds available in November. A few animals will be available for sale at by the ARBA Convention in October. We are taking reservations now for these babies. We will email sample pedigrees upon request. We can ship or will deliver to the convention.
This is Reserve Grand Champion Kokopelli Acre's Star of Orion, out of 2x Grand Champion Azure Springs Orion and Another Pygmy Pinup Gilda, born on 6/22/00. She is the first goat with my herd name. Needless to say, I am VERY proud! She is nicely bred having 10 PGCH ancestors in 4 generations. I will be breeding her to 2x GCH Azure Springs Nebo out of PGCH Proverbial Pygmies Simeon and PGCH Proverbial Pygmies Juliet in September.
All of my eligible stock has tested negative for Johnes, CAE/CL. I breed only to herds that have tested negative for Johnes, CAE/CL. We do disease testing annually to assure the continued good health of our herd.

As with all legends handed down from generation to generation, there exists an array of tales animating many a hero and Kokopelli is no exception. The stories about Kokopelli originated centuries ago and have been found in the ruins dating back as early as the third century and as late as the sixteenth: His purpose or mission remains unclear but his reputation does not. Known to some as a magician, he is known to others as a storyteller, teacher, healer,trickster, or god of the harvest and is often credited as being the "original" journalist. Believed to bring fertility and good fortune to whomever he met wherever he chose to roam, Kokopelli, with his hunchback and flute, was always welcome. Kokopelli possessed a playful, carefree nature that seemed to be able to bring the good out in everyone. Cousin to the mythical gods of the ancient world, Kokopelli is believed to represent the fertility and the untamed spirit or nature. Because of this and his sexy, joyous, uninhibited ways, his wisdom, magic, and simple nature have often times been overlooked. This masculine Casanova is famous for his prankster ways and one is often warned to beware for he is likely to trick you. It is all in good fun, though, for especially in today's world, his humor is refreshing and delightful. The stories may differ depending on the storyteller and tales shall be told for many, many years to come. Yet through it all, Kokopelli shall remain an inspiring figure with a passion for life.
