Meet Our Animals

Here at Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre, as well as our magnificent heavy horses, we have a fantastic selection of British animals & birdlife both wild & domesticated including rare breeds.

Farmyard

Shetland Ponies, Middle White Pigs and piglets, Hebridean Sheep, Hens, Ducks and Peacocks

Wildlife

Otters, Polecats, Red Foxes, Red Deer, Birds of Prey and Game Birds


This list changes from season to season as young are born and all of our wildlife has either been born in captivity or rescued while injured from the wild.

We also have a small flock of Lohmann Brown hens who run free in our woodland area in the Holly Bush field. The woodland consists of four and a half acres with 1500 native trees we planted in December 2009.

Our hens produce 4 to 5 dozen lovely eggs daily of various sizes and shades of brown. The eggs have lovely deep yellow yolks, why not try one of our egg sandwiches or scrambled egg in the Lakeside Cafe or you can purchase some fresh laid eggs to take home.
