Visitors to family day out favourite, Odds Farm Park, will love to meet new arrival, Henry! Henry is rare breed Golden Guernsey billy goat who has come from a breeder in Lincolnshire to meet the lady Golden Guernsey nannies at the farm. He is settling in well and enjoying meeting new friends.
Visitors to the award winning farm will be interested to learn that with between 501-1,000 breeding nannies registered in the UK, the Golden Guernsey Goat is classed as a Minority Breed by the Rare Breed Survival Trust.
The exact origin of the Golden Guernsey is uncertain, though it is believed that they have French, Syrian and Maltese ancestry. They arrived in the UK in 1965 from Guernsey and the first reference to them on The Channel Islands is from an 1826 tourism guide book.
Golden Guernsey Goats are also very quiet, docile and friendly goats for children to meet on a day out.
Elsewhere at Odds Farm Park, people on a day out can expect to meet plenty more furry friends in the large Undercover Animal Barns. Combined with a jam-packed Animal Activity and Demonstration Programme, there’s so much to do!
Family day out favourite, Odds Farm Park is easily reached from Beaconsfield, Amersham, Chesham, Gerrards Cross, High Wycombe, Great Missenden and Wendover. For more information, directions and prices visit the family days out website www.oddsfarm.co.uk
