A beautiful chocolate brown foal was born this morning and both mum and baby are doing great.
This was Maggie (the Mum's) first foal but she has taken to motherhood extremely well and the foal is already up and walking around.
Maggie has kept staff on their toes for the last 4 weeks, receiving extra checks at night and throughout the day as they awaited the birth. However, having shown no signs last night or in the early hours, she took everyone by surprise early this morning when we came into her stable to find the foal already there!
Sheep shearing at the farm this Friday!!!!
All our sheep will be getting sheared on Friday and our shearer will be doing demonstrations for everyone to watch at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Why not come down and see this once a year event!!
