Pigs

Lily does it again - Louie's legacy!
Lily came to us from Cefn Mably Farm near Cardiff.  She loves people and is always quick to roll over so you can tickle her belly!

On 27th March 2004 Lily had twelve little piglets.  
Just a month after Louie had died Lily produced her third litter of tiny spotted piglets. Dean was the first to find them and said "She must have just finsihed as she was very defensive but later Lily was back to her old self - she's such a friendly animal."

  Lily's new piglets soon after birth

The new piglets are running around already!!

See the Animal photo gallery for pictures of Lily's last litter.

Louie
Louie was with us for about ten years but at the end of February 2004 he lost the use of his back legs - it was probably a stroke or heart attack - two days later he was dead. As you can see above he left a legacy. He will be remembered not least because his belly was so big it nearly touched the floor when he ran over to see you!                                                                                             Back to top

Louie smiles for the camera!

 

Rabbits

We currently  have four rabbits:

Manhattan is a small New Zealand white male.  The other three are Angora rabbits - if you brush them enough you could make yourself a lovely jumper! Wigfield is a girl and is white too except for her fluffy ears.  Rebel is our other male and has lots of brown patches over his otherwise white fur.  Houdini (she likes to escape all the time!) is only a baby and is white and fluffy with light brown patches.                                                                                   Back to top

 

Dogs

Gwen is a new addition to the Haden family.  She is a tri coloured border collie who loves running around the Farm getting into trouble!  She usually sleeps all evening as she is so worn out! You can join Gwen on a virtual walk around Gower.                                                                                              Back to top

Gwen takes a rest chewing a piece of hay!

 

Cats

Smudge
Smudge has been the feline member of the Haden family for the past 13 years! She was given to Sarah Haden for her birthday.  She is very white and fluffy! Her name came from the fact that when she was a kitten she was pure white except for a little smudge of black on her head.  However after a few weeks this mark disappeared (maybe it was just a bit of mud!?).  She loves finding warm places to snooze (usually the office!) and is certainly the top cat of the Farm.  She even tries to boss Gwen around!

Hedges
Hedges came to us as a kitten with her brother Benson (good names!). Benson loved to be pampered and somehow got adopted by a family who live down the road from the farm!  He used to stroll up to see us with a very well fed, smug look on his face!  Hedges meanwhile gets pampered by the stables staff.  She really loves jumping up onto peoples shoulders and snuggling down like a living, breathing scarf!                                                                                  Back to top

 

 

Owl

Mr Whoo is a European Eagle Owl.  He has lived at the Farm since 1996.  he was bred by our good friend Paul Llewellyn (who also brings lots of snakes to the farm for the children to see!).   He has bright orange eyes which follow you wherever you go, nearly 360 degrees round!  He has a massive wingspan of over 6 feet and perches an impressive 2 feet tall!
Mr Whoo went missing for three months, click onto his home page to find out more....

Geese

The Chinese geese are called Daffy (Isn't that a duck's name?) and Harry. This noisy couple are very good guardducks, especially very early in the morning!                                                                                                  Back to top

 

Goats

These pygmy goats are called Billy and Gizmo.  They are very funny to watch when they play fight and head butt each other.  Don't worry they are only playing!  There are sometimes naughty by escaping and eating all our flowers - like the pigs they will eat anything!                                                                   Back to top

 

 

Mice

In reception we have have female mice to keep us company!  They are called Snowy, Muffin, Black Beauty and Minnie (who is too fast for our cameraman!)  They are very cute and love running on their wheel and burrowing into their sawdust.
