Old Macdonald is delighted to welcome to his farm some brand new arrivals, and all of them are just a bit piggish! First of all we have two proud mums here of, between them, over 12 piglets and you will find these in our special enclosures next door to our Meerkats. The patter of tiny trotters can be heard all day and night, and you really must not miss them!
Then we have a special treat as on Saturday May 11th we welcomed Smokey and Honey, a pair of Micro Pigs kindly provided by Claire from London. These two lovely and much loved animals are settling in very well, and Claire has sent these photos of their childhood (or piglethood perhaps). They have grown a bit as you will see from our current photo, but they are friendly and fun and a welcome addition to our collection here.
And Claire, we will make sure they write to you regularly and let you know how they are. By the way for all of you, Smokey is the black and white pig, honey the other and yes they are named after smokey bacon and honey roast ham, but don’t tell them!
And here they are, settling into their new home.
Finally, some of the children may well find these pigs below even more interesting!
