All 5 donkeys are relatively new on the farm & although very nervous for the first few months they have found their human confidence & are always now first in line for a cuddle (& carrot!)
The donkeys compete for attention with our 3 horses/ponies – Munchie, a stunning Fell Pony & his best mate come companion, Binky, a minature Shetland Pony arrived on the farm in October 2013 joined more recently by Gypsy, a lovely natured, gentle elderly Irish Cob
Our Indian Blue PeaHens finally both naturally raised a full brood of chicks in 2015 & they roam freely around the farm chaperoned by both Peacocks who will be seen proudly displaying to anything with feathers!
We further intend to extend our interest in Rare Breeds but the most recent acquisition has been a couple of pet Ryeland sheep, one of the oldest breeds of sheep in the UK & once designated a Rare Breed. The Ryeland is very docile & friendly in nature, heavily wooled giving them a very appealing appearance
