Our therapy animals.

The Sheep


Beatrice, Lola, Grace and Bonnie our sheep, they are very friendly and are happy to help clients. They are great for activities like herding and assault courses which can help with communication and cognitive thinking. The sheep really like children, they are gentle and a good alternative to horses in therapy for those who are a little unsure.

Henry


Henry is our Kune Kune pig, we have no idea how old he is and he is a bit of a star. He was found wandering the streets in March 2018, it was freezing cold, after several hours of police and local residents trying to find an owner and with all the rescue centres full we took him to our yard for the night. The following few days involved many calls and  hoops to jump through and Henry finally became ours, And what a character he is, he makes us laugh each day, he loves attention and a scratch, we are very lucky to have him.

Bella


Bella is a fantastic therapy pony, she came to us as she was being sold, she was too small for her owner and after being part of some of our workshops in the summer we brought her to join our team of ponies. She is very safe, really likes children and is very expressive in her body language. She really is extraordinary and has brought a tear to my eye on more than one occasion as she offers comfort and guidance to clients who need it. She is also in charge of the field and keeps order in the herd.
