Just some of our beautiful miniature shetland ponies, Marley our own home-bred foal in the middle, Khaleesi the pretty blue dun on the left and Summer the very pale palomino on the right!


In January we were very excited to collect our two reindeer calves Luna and Spirit. They were bred and have spent the first six months of their lives in the UK, this is far better than importing them at a young age from a colder climate... and of course they haven't suffered the trauma of a long journey.

They have joined Comet, our adult reindeer who took to them very quickly and all 3 girls get on well together.

See The Farm page for more information on our animals...
