Our first 2023 babies have been born!

8 February 2023

Our first babies of 2023 have entered the world and they are the cutest little things ever!  The tiny pygmy goat boys were born to mum Betsy on the 25th of January and they are already absolutely full of beans.

As the boys were born on Burns Night, we decided to go for a Scottish theme for their names – in honour of our national bard.  Our Pets Farm keepers came up with a shortlist of their favourites and the rest we left up to you!

The shortlist was posted to Facebook, and we asked our followers to help us choose the winning name.  The choices were: Neeps and Tatties, Rab and Tam, or Jura and Talisker.  Within just a few hours, a clear frontrunner emerged, and this lead was maintained right to the end.  With a final count of 1600 votes, Neeps and Tatties were chosen as the winning names.

We think you made the perfect choice!

Spring is always a great time of year here at the park with everything bursting into life. We can’t wait to show off our new arrivals when we reopen in March.
