These are both American miniature horses, mother and son. Crunchie was born here in 2012, his mother Libby was born in 2009. They both are happy here and will take part in some of our organised events.
'Boris & Pepper'
Boris and Pepper are two Kune Kune pigs which originate from New Zealand, although these two were rescued from becoming burgers and sausages and came to us at 3 months of age in 2010. they are very friendly love kids and like to be hand fed with treats and the occasional scratch.
'Wispa & Rolo'
These two half-brothers (aged 4) were rescued from Filey near Whitby after being in a very poor state, seriously undernourished, just skin and bones and their hooves had not been trimmed. Luckily they got rehabilitated until they could come to us to spend the rest of their days, they're happy now and love their ears stroked!
(Also very fond of carrots).
'Iris & Poppy'
These are pygmy goats that arrived to the sanctuary at 12 weeks of age this spring of 2016. They are small and friendly will make a great addition here especially for kids to look at and stroke at our events.
'Gladys & Hilda'
They arrived in spring 2016 from lovely home nearby, we wanted them to help with the education of children and to have more room to roam on our farm. They were originally bought as micro pigs and living in a house!! Maybe they've outgrown that status?
This is Gilly a china cob who came to us on the 8th of June 2015 his mother died shortly after giving birth to him. My mother spent 14 hours training him how to suckle off a foster mare as he was only used to drinking out of a bucket.
He has a cheeky character and likes to wander occasionally in to my mothers living room.
