Russell and Kim Nead are an energetic couple who have huge hearts perfect for loving animals! Russ is a retired Marine who grew up on a dairy farm in Florida. Kim is a horse loving mom who grew up riding ponies in Florida as well. Not only do they have a lot of responsibility now with the new business and all of the animals, they also devote a large portion of their time to serving as volunteer 4-H leaders of The Newport Roadrunners.
Russell and Kim have three amazing children who have all left the nest. Their two older children, Josh and Daniel, both reside and work in Florida. Their youngest child, Amber, is a Junior at NC State with hopes of graduating in Spring 2012 with a degree in Agriculture Science. Amber is the only one who returns to the farm and helps with the family business, such as giving horseback riding lessons, helping with birthday parties and teaching summer camps.
