The Winemaker’s Cottage has just been awarded a Pet Friendly Badge from Afristay…
Now we’re not ones to shout about awards, but this one seems apt as we recently made a list of the animals on the farm, and it is quite a long one.
Appelliefie (a massive fluffy-in-winter dog that reminds of something in Harry Potter), Sanka (the second of his name, yes Sanka the first is dead man – it’s a Cool Runnings reference that you should know) Janis Joplin (the German not very good Shepard) Jan (the Percheron) Poon (the pony) and St John & Oggie (just horses…)
Also Twinkles and Molly (or Holly?) the cats; five turkeys (for now, Black Friday is coming…); LOTS of chickens (different breeds – including a family called Adi, Cornelia, Samuel & Ana!); muscovy ducks; guineafowl and peacocks (although they are wild) and Adi’s parrots (different breeds, some noisier than others).
There is something called Freda (that I haven’t met) and Choppie (I’m guessing lamb); Ted the Tortoise; what feels like hundreds of bunnies and the latest addition, a mongoose.
That’s enough for now. More pictures at another time.
But yes, we are pet friendly so bring your (insert animal here) when you come stay.
