Well done to our sheep and farmers! Last week the team and Mudchute sheep attended their first show this year, the Lambourn Vintage Machinery and Country Show. The team did well, coming away with first prize in the Downland Ewe class with Mudchute’s Southdown ewe going on to become reserve champion downland sheep. Mudchute’s Whitefaced Woodland shearling also came first in the white coloured wool on the hoof category. Well done sheep and handlers and best of luck with the rest of the livestock showing season.
After a busy few weeks, we’re thrilled to have a new arena for Mudchute Equestrian Centre! The new and improved facilities were made possible thanks to generous support from the Lottery Fund. It has been incredible to see how quickly the old menage has been transformed!
Since their arrival, our large black pigs have been growing steadily. As we prepare for a new duo of piglet sisters to join us (watch this space!), our large black piglets are moving to a larger enclosure. Here they have even more opportunities to indulge in their favourite natural behaviours like sunbathing and rooting. There’s plenty to explore!
