This family of goats are the centre of our rare breeds programme. They have long hair, with a distinctive colour pattern being black forequarters and white on the rear part of the body. Lily’s brother, Vinney Blue, has gained the coveted position of mascot for The Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester, and will be making an appearance at assemblies and events! Aged 19, he is one of our oldest of resident Shetland Ponies.
Dating back to the 1300’s, the Bagot Goat is one of the oldest known registered breeds of goat in the UK. Tug came here as a rescue pony over 10 and is now 19 years old.
They are registered on the Rare Breed Society Trust‘s endangered list as there are only 200 nannies left in the world. He is grey in colour and a very sensitive and quiet pony.He lives with our four other Shetlands – Sparky who is a standard size like Tug and Holly, Tiny Tim and Pepper who are miniatures.These ponies are very strong and were once used to pull carts in coal mines!Holly is 14 years old and is a pedigree miniature Shetland pony.She has a beautiful palamino (pale cream) coat and is very friendly and loves to say hello to the visitors at the animal park.She is the only girl in the small herd at Kingston Maurward, she is a bit of a diva and stands just 33 inches tall! We have Chinese Painted Quail which are found worldwide, and Zebra finches originate mainly from Central Australia.
