At this childrens farm, resident donkey Piper has just given birth to a beautiful boy foal. The new arrival within the kids farm was born on 7 March 2010 and he is the same colouring as his mum. Looking like a huge cuddly toy, he is especially cute and mum Piper is proving to be fantastic mother. Families on a day out can meet Piper and her foal in the new Animal Barns within the childrens farm.
Piper arrived at Odds Farm Park last summer and, as donkeys are pregnant for between 12 and 14 months, nobody was exactly sure when the new foal would be born. The new baby donkey, like other young donkey foals, walked within hours and he will drink his mum’s milk for about six months, before starting to eat grass and hay.
Elsewhere at this quality childrens farm, those on days out can meet the other donkeys, explore the two new Animal Barns with many other baby animals and run wild in the Indoor Playbarn, complete with Astra Slide, Ride-on Toys and the Bale Climb. Parents can relax too in the heated Playbarn Gallery with a Soft Play Area for the little ones.
Family day out favourite, Odds Farm Park is easily reached from West London, London, Berkshire, North London, Buckinghamshire and Oxford. For more information, directions and prices visit the family days out website www.oddsfarm.co.uk
