Welcome to Our Animal Petting Area in Doncaster
Pass the time with our friendly animals in our petting area
Petting and spending time with animals can be an invaluable experience for children. It teaches kids the importance of being gentle and kind, and to have respect and compassion for other forms of life.
It’s also a lovely opportunity to spend time with animals we wouldn’t normally be able to get close to.
Petting area prices:
£10.00 per child (under 2s get in free)
Various feed for the animals: £1.00
Our calm and exciting animals are a delight to be around!
Let's meet our animals!
SHEEP - Valais Black nose Lambs
This rare breed originates from Switzerland and can grow as large as a pony. Bev Griffiths, the owner, has hand-reared these animals to the beautiful boys they are today! They are incredibly affectionate and will follow you around like a dog!
MINIATURE TOM & JERRY DONKEYS FROM HOLLAND
Meet Tom and Jerry - Very special and rare donkeys who love children and cuddles. We are a breeding pair so watch out for our new little arrival.
Cheeky Charley is a Falabella - the very smallest of the pony breeds. He is just so small and adorable, but don’t let him fool you – he is indeed a cheeky chappie, as his name suggests.
We welcomed our new arrival Blossom in June 2022 she is registered the smallest horse in the UK fully grown.
Meanwhile, Freddie is our miniature Shetland – a rather old man now, but fighting fit and doing very well, despite his advanced years!
Barbie and Ken live here at Equine Dreams - come & see the cutest couple.
Uncle Tut and Uncle Reggie are our beautiful alpaca boys – and they certainly enjoy getting plenty of fuss and attention from the families who visit us each day.
Our Norwegian reindeer are friendly, relaxed and more than happy to spend time being petted and fawned over by our guests.
These domestic pigs love to play and lounge about, soaking in the sun all day!
