The Residents

You’ll notice I haven’t introduced you to the creatures inhabiting the ranch, so here we go:

Sunshine Ranch comes with no less than seven animals, as pictured. Unfortunately one of them is that darned kitten from Olivia’s Tree House, which should have met a fiery demise a long time ago. Very interestingly the regular minifigure-scale chicken also makes an appearance (possibly the first non-Friends animal to do so in a Friends set), and you may remember the long-legged foal from Olivia’s Newborn Foal.

I did forget about the owl in Heartlake High, which is also a minifigure-style animal.

Here we have Mia and her friend Liza (the one with the blonde hair): two more minidolls for your collection. Mia has a unique torso the same torso as Danielle from Downtown Bakery in this set, while the trouser and flip-flop combination has been seen way too many times before. Liza has Olivia’s torso from Olivia’s Newborn Foal and skin-tight riding trousers, and differentiates herself from the other characters with the same hairstyle by having an open mouth (like Stephanie). Both minidolls have corresponding riding helmets.
