Wallabies

We have a colony of Northern Swamp Wallabies in the wallaby enclosure.

There’s a baby wallaby that only hopped out of the pouch at Christmas so you can see the tiny one jumping around the paddock with the others.

We also have a baby girl wallaby that had been abandoned by its mum, and although she is bright and alert with eyes open, she had no hair when we rescued her and she’s only just starting to grow some now! She only drinks wallaby formula milk; she lives in a makeshift pouch and goes with us everywhere we go.

Ask about her at the entrance and you can say hello if she’s not sleeping!

Kangaroos

We have Kangaroo Island, Red Kangaroos and Grey Kangaroos.

They all enjoy staying in the shade of the trees at the far end of their paddocks during the summer months so they are hard to see if you’re not on a pony trek or the trailor train ride.

At night they all come over to the gate for their tea and although they are nervous, they are getting braver and hopefully will be ready for hand feeding them in the near future.

Ponies/Horses

The first pony we bought is a 13.3hh bay welsh mountain pony called Bundi.

She was rescued by the lady we bought her from two years ago and has been loved ever since!

With lots of love and patience she has become a lovely pony for the pony rides.

Bundi gives pony rides for the older children.

 

Pixie is a 13hh grey welsh mountain pony.

She is fantastic for the smaller children to have pony rides on as nothing fazes her and she plods around as quiet as anything.

Pixie is fantastic for the treks around the farm and she is a star for beginner to intermediate level riding lessons.

Emus

We have had our emus since they were hatched and although they look scary and intimidating, they are actually very friendly and curious animals.

For those of you who are brave enough, they are great fun to play with in their enclosure.

Geese

Geese are famous for being great guard dogs. For this reason though they can be quite intimidating to children.

Our geese are therefore available to view only.

They are very noisy and the children seem to love throwing feed over for them and watching them all compete to get there first!
