The Asian Short Clawed Otter

Wed Oct 11 2017 at 18:25

The Asian Short Clawed Otter Here at Old MacDoanld’s farm we have two lovable Asian short clawed Otters, one male and one female, appropriately named “Giggle” and “Wiggle”. Asian Short Clawed Otters Can be found in the south of Asia and to the southeast of Asia, they are the smallest Otter species in the world and like their Otter brothers they are seriously threatened by rapid habitat destruction, hunting and pollution. Their population trend is decreasing despite being a protected species they are endangered. Here at Old MacDonald’s Farm we would like to make visitors aware of the growing needs for conservation and the protection of this species and their homes. If you would like to learn more about Otter’s and conservation or would like to donate to the cause please visit www.otter.org to learn about the IOSF The Otter Survival Fund.

Old MacDonald’s Farm annual Armed Forces Day

Tue Oct 10 2017 at 19:20

Old Macdonald’s Farm held its annual Armed forces day on Saturday the 7th of October by opening for the our serving men and women’s families for them to enjoy a family free day out to say thank you for all that they do. This is has been an annual event for Old Macdonald’s Farm for 7 years now and a very popular one at that, we had a great turnout this year and we are always greeted by such lovely, kind people.

Sergeant Scott Berwick wrote: Hello, my name is SGT Scott Berwick. I am a member of the armed forces and I just wanted to email to say thank you for the Forces Day on Saturday. It is so nice to know that the armed forces are appreciated. My family had the most wonderful day and my son will remember it for a very long time.

Many thanks

We have had another new litter of piglets, but one of them, the runt of the litter who we have named Minnie, was so small that the vet did not think she would pull through. But with the help of our keeper Maisie who has hand reared her, sleeping with her and feeding her every hour of the night, Minnie has put on a considerable amount of weight and is now out of the woods and considers Maisie as her mum!! Minnie loves cuddles, her bottle and likes long walks around the farm – well done Maisie!!
