South Hills Farm Update – Jan 2017

 

There is always more to be done on the farm during the winter months, with many of the animals needing shelter. The Baby Unit have had all manner of neighbours in the yard over the last few months, from our ponies to the chickens and ducks! Pets Corner is relocated to the stables during the colder weather; our guinea pigs and rabbits have enjoyed keeping warm and having some extra cuddles with the children.

 

We had some very special arrivals during 2016. We rehomed another donkey from the Donkey Sanctuary; Jimbob joined Wooly and the two quickly formed a special bond with one another.

 

More recently, the children have been enjoying getting to know Ted and Sapphie, two miniature Shetland ponies who became the latest additions to the South Hills Farm family in December 2016. Sapphie is currently in foal, which has provided a wonderful learning opportunity for the children here. We are all very excited to welcome a new foal this year, a first for South Hills!

 

In addition to Ted & Sapphie's foal, we are expecting kids, piglets and lambs fairly imminently. Spring always offers exciting opportunities for the children to get involved on the farm: bottle feeding, petting the new arrivals and witnessing the role of our vets first hand.

 

We will be sure to post photos of all of the farm goings-on on our Facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/southhillsschool/
