Animals

The farm is home to seven horses who are a variety of shapes and sizes!
They are used in grooming activities, long lining, leading, lunging and grooming. The project workers help with all aspects of horse care, including vet/ dentist/ farrier visits. As well as the horses, we also ensure that we are up to date with our and maintenance. This includes poo picking, fencing, bark chipping gate ways, re-seeding paddocks, harrowing, and rolling. We often use the small tractor which the project workers drive along with a small trailer.

We also have five mature Jacobs sheep (ewes) at the farm and four Jacob ewe lambs who keep us regularly entertained with their antics! March is always an exicting time as this is when we start lambing! The project workers get involved and even managed to watch one of our ewes give birth this year! Usually the ewes lamb at night or early hours of the morning so that made it extra special to witness.

There is also an aviary at the farm housed to around 15 colourful budgies. Solihull Lions kindly raised the money to purchase the aviary which is now a firm fixture in the farms must sees! They are very naughty!

Our new arrival to the farm are two rabbits called Parsnip and Mary. They will  be part of our small animal program which we are hoping to develop and build on over the next couple of years.
