It’s been a busy week here at Old Macdonald’s Farm & Fun Park not only have we opened for a new season but we have welcomed some very cute new arrivals.

Our new flock of little lambs were born throughout the February half term and thankfully all are doing exceptionally well and all our sheep mums have taken to motherhood like a duck to water! It was perfect timing as not only could our keepers get close to our adorable lambs but so could our visitors with scheduled petting times throughout the day to introduce our new-born’s to life on the farm and to wean them into interacting with us and our visitors.

We can’t forget our baby Guinea pigs! It’s been somewhat of a baby boom in our “Rabbitry” this February as we have welcomed three lots of Guinea pig babies! Along with our two nearly born baby bunnies born in January and our cute little Guinea pig babies we have heard a lot of “Awwws!” And “Ooooos!” as visitors visited them in our “Rabbitry” throughout February half term and also were able to get up close to them in our classroom throughout the day and learn some fun facts!

With great anticipation we are pleased to announce a new member of the Old MacDonald’s Farm family! Freckles our new Shetland pony is a beautiful boy, he is 9 years old is almost white all over with freckles on his bum! Hence his name! He was brought to us on December 27th 2016.

Freckles is enjoying life on the farm with Maisie and Tallulah his keepers constantly fussing around him. He has met quite a few of our visitors here at the farm over the February half term while walking around with Maisie and Tallulah, visitors have been able to stroke him and if they’re lucky feed him a delicious carrot.

You can meet Freckles and his new friend Boo in our paddock at the entrance of the farm where they are throughout the day then in the evening when the farm is closed they are moved back to their large paddock at the back of the farm for running, playing and grazing! Watch this space for more updates on Freckles the Shetland Pony!
