Henry is an Australian Shepherd Dog who loves to befriend anyone who comes to visit the farm. His master is Farmer Judy and he always goes on an adventure when Farmer Judy delivers her farm-fresh fruits and vegetables. Henry always strives to have peace in the barnyard among all of his farm animal friends and loves his very best friend, Matilda. He lives in a dog house right by the chicken yard on the farm. His favorite food is bacon!!! Henry loves to read books and is happy all the time!!

Henry and Matilda


Matilda’s family of chickens have been living at Farmer Judy’s farm for five generations now. She is a proud hen whose beauty has won her first prize at the county fair for four years in a row now. Matilda speaks her mind about things and loves to travel with her best friend, Henry, on their adventures. Her favorite hobby is knitting, and she loves to take an afternoon nap under the apple tree. 


Annette the hen is Matilda’s younger cousin. She loves to laugh and loves to stay under the apple tree with Matilda and the other chickens. Annette loves to color in her chicken coloring book and likes to help her teachers clean up the classroom. 

Uncle Leland

Uncle Leland is the oldest farm animal on Farmer Judy’s farm, and (as seen above) he loves his rooster rest. He is Matilda and Annette’s Great Uncle but everyone refers to him as “Uncle Leland.” He loves to share his memories of days gone by in the barnyard.

He proudly accepts his call as the rooster on the farm and considers his job, crowing and saying “cock-a-doodle-doo” every morning as one of the most important jobs on the farm because it lets everyone know it is a new day on the farm and it’s time to wake up!!!

Gordon the Horse

Gordon is a stallion that Henry and Matilda meet on their adventure to Charleston. He pulls the carriage around the town and gets to meet a lot of new friends.

He is the most handsome when he wears yellow flowers called daffodils in his hair. His favorite food is pickles, and he likes to prance when he walks.

Farmer Judy

Farmer Judy is the farmer who loves all of her animals. She grows all of her fruits and vegetables with love so that they will be good for delivery in all places.  Farmer Judy loves to cook in her kitchen and plays the piano. Her farm is hard work, but she is happy to do it. She loves Henry and Matilda and their friends very much.
