Although we were shut to visitors today it was a normal day for staff. My day started at 7.30 with a walk around to check everything looked okay and then onto cleaning out the ponies and donkeys, followed by mucking out the cows and finally time to do the aviary and other wildlife feeds.
After a quick tea break and its food preparation for tomorrow and this evening’s feeds.
Midday and there are lunchtime feeds for some of the animals, including the waterfowl and agoutis.
After my lunch there is time for a spot of paperwork and at 3.00 the evening feeds are put out to give everything time to feed before it’s dark.
Finally, lock up at 4.00 and off home.
