Wanting to get a bit fitter in January or February and love being around animals? Our Farmyard Bootcamp is an introduction to horse and donkey husbandry including all the work!
This is a great present for animal-lovers who would like to know more about handling and caring for some equines including the Good Day Out miniature donkeys, Betty the standard donkey and also introducing horses Blondie and Snow who live on the same yard.
You’ll spend around 90 mins on the normal daily tasks from 8.30am, feeding, fetching water, mucking out, grooming and sweeping. Scratches, cuddles and interaction are encouraged with the mini donkeys and they usually try to help in some way.
This can be combined with a Dinky Donkey Walk, a Mini Donkey Games session for £45 per person, or we are very happy to send you off on a walk in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, with maps and descriptions provided free of charge. Please get in touch for these options and we can send over a booking link.
There is accommodation at the farm and nearby so this could be booked as part of a package to make a great winter break in Wales so get in touch if you are interested in extending the experience.
Handling of the donkeys is part of the experience but all manual tasks can be tailored to suit should you have any fitness issues. This is a fun collaborative insight into how equines are cared for every day, especially throughout Winter. It is a very small group so interaction and questions are encouraged about their daily care and welfare.
