Our Animals at Cerrig y Barcud Holiday Cottages include goats and ponies. They are all are part of the family here, and we hope they’ll be part of your holiday too.
Feeding the Goats
We have four goats at Cerrig y Barcud, all of whom enjoy being stroked, and most of all, being fed! The goats are kept as pets, and not milked.
Polly (or to give her proper pedigree name, Pollyanna Pollyanna Lois) is a pygmy goat and joined Cerrig y Barcud in 2004 when she was only 3 months old.
Polly is very friendly, and always keen to be fed. In her younger days, Polly would follow us on walks around the grounds. These walks only stopped when she took a liking to the new trees planted in the front lawns!
Crystal and Snowdrop
White Goats Crystal and Snowdrop joined us here in summer 2008, having been born earlier in the year at Foel Farm Park.
Crystal is Mum to Frosty who was a surprise addition to the family when she appeared on a very cold and frosty morning in December 2008.
Harry Jackson is the dapple grey, born in Mid-Wales in 2003, and sent to auction at only a few months old, unwanted because of his boxed feet. This is a genetic condition affecting the coffin bone of the hoof, with an affected animal appearing to be standing to some degree on its toe.
He was rescued by Equine Market Watch and taken to their sanctuary in mid-south Wales, from where he was later brought to Cerrig y Barcud
Rupert is a Bay coloured Welsh cross Shetland and came to us from Equine Market Watch after the previous owner was no longer able to look after him.
Rupert is very loving and loves being stroked and fed. Although he’s the smallest, he’ll show Harry who’s boss whenever here’s food around!
Martha and Rose are our two feral cats, named after Dr Who’s companions! They were rescued by a local animal sanctuary, and joined us as kittens in late 2007. They are working cats, and live in one of the outbuildings, mixing freely with the goats and other animals, whilst as feral cats, they will generally keep away from humans. Martha is almost entirely black, whilst Rose is black and white.
