Here at the zoo, we have a small collection of animals who are very pleased to meet you down at the farm. Why not come and say hello?
Domesticated by humans from wild goats in South-west Asia and Eastern Europe, there are around 210 named breeds of domestic goat, of which ours are classified as Pygmy goats.
Henri, Thierry and Bambi
These three boys are bundles of mischievous trouble! They enjoy climbing, browsing and engaging with the visiting public. Their favourite food is fresh willow shoots and specially prepared grain mix.
Pigs were domesticated many thousands of years BC in Asia and brought across to Europe in the 18th Century. There are hundreds of different breeds of domestic pig and our two sweet girls are classified as Pot-bellied pigs.
Velma is an outgoing pig, except when it comes to having sun-cream applied to her delicate pink tummy! She loves to sleep, snuggled up in her deep hay bedding.
Our domestic rabbits are Giant European.
Cash was originally an unwanted pet, who came to the zoo from an animal rescue centre. Cash loves to inspect what’s going on, his fur is eleven-out-of-ten soft!
