When we think of former RHOBH cast member Yolanda Hadid, the words beautiful, awe-inspiring and bountiful come to mind. Technically we were just talking about the Eighth Wonder of the World that was the glass refrigerator in Yolanda’s former Los Angeles home but we could have also easily been referencing the stunning farm she currently lives on.
All joking aside, the expansive Pennsylvania estate that Yolanda now calls her home is filled with sprawling fields of lavender, inhabited by a menagerie of animals, and well, we want to go. Sadly, our invitation to stroll the grounds seems to have been lost in the mail, so we are forced to do the next best thing and peruse her Instagram.
After leaving Beverly Hills to heal from both her Lyme disease and divorce, Yolanda took to the east coast, deciding to split her time between a Manhattan apartment to be close to her children and her farm nestled in the suburbs of Philadelphia. The move to the farm was a way to reconnect with her roots; Yolanda has been a lover of both the outdoors and of animals since her childhood in the Netherlands.
The farm definitely has enough horses to make any child (from the Netherlands or elsewhere) squeal. Not only does Yolanda’s barn house gorgeous horses that the lifelong equestrian can ride, but it also shelters two of the most precious mini horses you have ever seen. Pony Muku is obviously Yolanda’s favorite, as the two are often posed together in adorable selfies and in an extra heartwarming addition, Yo and Gigi posed with Muku and her mother to honor their respective familial bonds.
Horses aren’t the only animals tended at Rancho De Yo (we just made this up, but we think it works), the farm also has chickens, goats, sheep and cows, specifically Scottish highland cattle — you know, the shaggy hair mop top cows that look like they have bangs!?
The cattle with whimsical hairstyles aren’t the only thing Yolanda loves about the farm, based on her Insta we see her loving to collect fresh organic eggs from her chickens, experiencing the varied seasons including weathering snowstorms with her animal broods, and generally celebrating #farmlife. Dare we say, the farm is even more majestic than her former the glass fridge!? Don’t believe us? See for yourself below and just try to tell us it doesn’t make you want to cast aside city life and go all Green Acres.
