We’ve all seen the horses on Main Street, U.S.A in Disneyland park, but do you know where these horses really live? Backstage, north of Frontierland in Disneyland park, there is a working ranch, called Circle D Corral.
Here are some fun facts to consider before taking a step “backstage” in today’s video to see the animals that live in Circle D Corral:
- The ranch is currently home to 28 horses, a jersey cow, two miniature donkeys, three turkeys and 15 goats.
- Forty-eight cast members work at the ranch.
- All the horses are large, “draft” horses (“draft horses” are horses that are adapted to pull heavy loads).
- The following breeds of horse are represented at Circle D: Percheron, Clydesdale, Belgian and Shire.
- No Disneyland horse works more than 4 hours a day, 3 days a week.
- And, like all cast members, the horses at Disneyland park always wear their name tags when they are working.
