Congratulations and Celebrations! On Thursday 6th April, proud mum Cocoa gave birth to adorable Shetland foal, Horlicks! The birth was a great success and both mum and son are bonding well.
Visitors will be interested to learn that Shetland Ponies originate from the Shetland Isles, located North East of mainland Scotland and excavations have revealed that they date back to the Bronze Age. With over 3,000 registered adult breeding females, Shetland Ponies are currently not classed as “rare” by the Rare Breed Survival Trust.
Horlicks is not the only new arrival to Odds Farm over recent weeks. From cheeky piglets to adorable kid goats and fluffy lambs, there’s a real “Baby Boom” happening at the farm!
Visitors will be pleased to learn that they can meet the new arrivals in either the Undercover Animal Barns or outside Paddocks. And, with even more new arrivals expected over the coming weeks, you may be lucky enough to see a birth!
In addition to meeting the new arrivals, children on a day out will love to take part in the Daily Animal Activities and Demonstrations which are all supervised by the friendly Livestock Team as well as discover acres of Indoor and Outdoor Play.
Award Winning Odds Farm Park is easily reached from Beaconsfield, Amersham, Chesham, Gerrards Cross, High Wycombe, Great Missenden and Wendover.
