DORRIT🐴, CHLOE🐴 and BRIDGET🐴 Management of these little ponies has its challenges. Each season brings with it possible health issues which we desperately try to avoid. Summer has been extremely difficult this year. Little Dorrit (you can see her black bottom in the photo), suffers from sweet itch, an allergic reaction to midges. The combination of wet and warm weather has seen the rise is midge numbers. It has also made the grass grow like crazy, great you might think, but this bright green grass can cause a debilitating condition called laminitis (inflammation of the hoof wall) which the whole herd is at risk from. www.bhs.org.uk/advice-and-information/horse-health-and-sickness/laminitis It's now time to prepare for winter and the challenges that come with the cold, wet weather. We are always thinking of ways to keep these cheeky minds active. If you have any ideas please share them with us. We'd love to hear from you. 💙🧡💛 ... See MoreSee Less
Ozzie is growing big and strong (and even more handsome) by the day and is very aware of everything moving around him. The team are making preparations for Ozzie to move off site in the next few weeks to our soft release aviary where we will prepare him for his big day. 🧡💛💙
Teamwork saves Gilly.🦉 The little Tawny Owl was found floating on a river in Barlow at 10.30am on Monday by Park Pals Dog Walking Services. A call to us for guidance, the Owl was retrieved from the water. Soaking wet and very weak she was taken to a local dog walking client who started to get Gilly warm and dry on our advice, while the dogs finished their walk and were taking home. By 12pm Gilly was with us. She was extremely weak and despite efforts to get her warm she was still too cold to feed. By 2am she had warmed up but had only eaten a few little bits of food by hand and we feared the worst. Owls carry very little fat storage and rely on fluids from their food too. By 4am however, Gilly finally started to hold herself up and finally ate a whole chick all by herself! 24hrs hours later you can see by the photo this little girl was looking much brighter and has continued to improve all week.💛🧡💙 The quick response from Park Pals and her wonderful client definitely help save this beautiful girl.
Catch us if you can!🦆🦆 These two Tufted (Wild) ducks are with us because they were unscrupulously sold as pets. They had their wings clipped* to stop them being able to fly off but the new owner soon realised they weren't the breed they were supposed to be. This duo will now stay with us until their new feathers come through and then be released.
*wing clipping involves clipping the end of the flight feathers to stop birds from being able fly. This is a temporary measure which doesn't cause pain and new flight feathers will grow back after a moult.
Have they began moulting yet?
If need be you can pluck each quil from the wing that has had feathers cut and they will grow back over the course of a few weeks, I can come down and do it for you if you need.
Hoglet wrinkles.🦔 This little hoglet arrived on Friday after being found alone in a garden. He came in freezing cold and we weren't sure he'd survive the night. He's a little fighter though and despite being extremely weak is still with us.🧡💛💙
