Anna's Festive Blog

Hello there!

It’s Christmas! And I am so excited! I love everything about Christmas… well, almost everything. I’m not sure why Alistair was taking a tree in his house, trees are definitely things that are meant to be outside. He also showed me the John Lewis advert, which he said was a Christmas tradition, the problem is I don’t know who John Lewis or Elton John are! Maybe they are members?

As always Christmas is always very exciting around here. Santa and his elves come to host a festive "Breakfast with Santa”. When Santa comes he seems very popular and everyone wants a picture with him, I told him I know the feeling! We also have 2 special weekends where people can come onto the farm for just £1. I thought I was hearing things when Alistair told me, that is a steal! I suppose it is the season of giving. We also have a special Christmas woodland trail, with a brand new festive puzzle to solve.

We have lots of unique gifts at the centre, including experience days, memberships, gift vouchers and you can adopt any animal on the farm including ME! It’s a great way to support the centre, and who wouldn’t want me as part of their family! You also get a lovely pack including a picture and some free tickets to come and see us all.

As well as Christmas, we are also looking forward to new life at the centre, and we are expecting early foals this year with two due in January. With presents to buy for the new Mums and foals as well as Christmas gifts to buy my pocket money was running low, so I suggested to the other horses about doing a Secret Santa, which they loved. I got Ben Alder, I’m not the best at buying for boys, so if you have any suggestions, let me know.

Well, that’s all for me for now. I hope to see you at Cotebrook over the festive period.

Lots of Love
