A BIT of frost and snow wasn’t enough to put off these adorable animals.
It was business as usual for the animals at Jimmy’s Farm, and not even the freezing temperatures could stop them from roaming around the fields.
Kate Cotterill, marketing manager for Jimmy’s Farm, said the primary concern was ensuring the animal’s drinking water didn’t freeze.
“It is very much so business as usual here,” she said. “We do have to make sure that the drinking water for the animals doesn’t freeze and that they have water to drink.
“We have all the bedding sorted for them.
“Our rare breed pigs have a large layer of fat around them so they are doing okay. The larger livestock animals are doing fine because they are built for this.
“Our smaller animals, including guinea pigs, normally come inside for the winter.
“Some of the ponies have had some TLC because they had some warmer food earlier.”
