ALFIE

ANIMAL: SHETLAND PONY

BORN: 2006

Alfie was one of the first animals we had here at Hope Nature Centre. His favourite snack is apple and carrot, and he always loves a fuss being made of him.

DOBBY

ANIMAL: ALPACA

BORN: 2004

Alpacas don’t spit at you, they actually throw up on you! If that doesn’t make you want to adopt Dobby then we don’t know what will!

JILL

ANIMAL: DONKEY

BORN: 1997

She is the oldest donkey we have but definitely the boss! She can usually be heard bossing the other donkeys around in between eating lots of grass.

JIM-BOB

ANIMAL: GOAT

BORN: 2017

Golden Guernsey goat which are a rare breed of goat. He’s a very friendly goat and is always running over to say hello, especially if you’ve got some feed!

MOLLY

ANIMAL: KUNEKUNE PIG

BORN: 2011

She sits on command like a dog when she is waiting for her food. She also loves to sit in muddy puddles (a bit like Peppa Pig!). 

MR DARCY

ANIMAL: TURKEY

BORN: 2018

His snood changes colour when his mood changes. You can usually find him strutting around his paddock, being the boss.

POPPY

ANIMAL: RABBIT

BORN: 2015

She will always run over to greet you if you go to stroke her, and her favourite treat is carrot. She loves to sun bathe when the sun comes out!

STACEY

ANIMAL: GIANT RABBIT

BORN: 2017

Stacey weighs roughly 6KG – the equivalent to 5 bags of sugar! They love to eat, and can get through 3 carrots a day, as well as all her normal food too.

STORM

ANIMAL: GOAT

BORN: 2006

Storm has no teeth, so she is only able to eat soft food. She is one of the oldest animals in our animal park, but is full of character and is very friendly.

TATTIE

ANIMAL: HIGHLAND CATTLE

BORN: 2018

Tattie is one of 2 Highland Cattle at Hope Nature Centre, her favourite snack is sticky weed, and is very friendly in temperament.
