Welcome to Olde Farm, my name is Horatio, I am the youngest and smallest of the Pugs and I would like to introduce you to my fellow pets. You will see many of us wandering around the gardens, we love attention and are very friendly, so please stop and say hello. You will find floating food to feed the runner ducks and swans in the cottages and they absolutely love bananas! My friends here are my fellow pugs Sargeant and Poppet, Betsy the Terrier-ist; Potato, Oliver and Gandalf the cats; Thelma, Louise, Goldie Corn, Blanche, Shelia, Bette, Heidi, Gretal and Bruce the hens. There are also the Runner Ducks (lots) – and our beautiful black swans, Aragorn and Arwen. Then there are Mack and Mabel the mallards and their neighbours Mr & Mrs Moorhen and their brood, oh and I must not forget Sir Barry and Lady Brenda the hedgehogs who live in the little houses tucked away in the bushes. There are also lots and lots of species of wild birds that come and visit daily to have breakfast with us particularly Phil the Pheasant and Alan Partridge who drop in to hoover up the food that the birds drop at the feeding stations dotted around the gardens. And finally, newly added to the brood in 2018 are Bilbo and Frodo the Hoppits – ok rabbits if you must.
We hope you enjoy your stay here at Olde Farm with us and we look forward to meeting you.
Bye for now.
Horatio Caine-ine (yes Dalene is a great CSI Miami fan)
