A new arrival awaits visitors on a day out to Odds Farm Park as staff at the popular visitor attraction recently welcomed the arrival of Anglo Nubian billy goat, Maximus!

Born in February, Maximus has recently relocated to Odds Farm Park and is settling in well in one of the paddocks,!  Very friendly and extremely handsome, he will be ready to be introduced to the “ladies” in the Autumn!

The Anglo Nubian Goat was created in the UK at the end of the Nineteenth Century. It was developed by crossing goats in England with those arriving on Ocean Liners from the East; the goats were used to provide fresh milk during the voyage.

On a day out to Odds Farm Park, children can identify the Anglo Nubian Goat by their height (they are one of the tallest breeds of goat) and their long pendular ears. Many colour combinations are found which give some Anglo Nubian Goats very attractive mottled, marbled and tortoiseshell coats.

Elsewhere at Odds Farm Park, families on a day out can meet even more furry friends and even get close up to them in the Designated Animal Feeding Area.   Combined with a jam-packed Animal Activity and Demonstration Programme, there’s so much to do!

Odds Farm Park is an award winning children’s farm providing an ideal family day out and is easily reached from North London, West London, London and Buckinghamshire. To visit the family days out website, visit www.oddsfarm.co.uk
