First of all we would like to wish everyone a very happy new year from all the staff and furry, feathery and scaly residents here at the Park!
Although 2012 didn’t get off to a very welcoming sunny start, come rain or shine it’s business as usual for our Keepers as they get togged up to brave the wet and windy January weather and prepare to begin their daily routine of feeding and cleaning all the eagerly awaiting animals….including our adorable, if not a little wet, Alpacas!
As it turns out Augustus and Garnet don’t have to worry about getting their wool wet as due to their thick fibrous wool the rain doesn’t even penetrate to their skin!
Others however have got more important things on their mind, like making sure they have a comfy sty to keep dry in…….
Yes you guessed it, I’m talking about Alfie and Willis our Miniature Pigs!
The boys just love to busy themselves arranging the straw just how they like it in order to make a comfy bed……
Well at least it’s one less job for the Keepers to do!
