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 two goats at Cerrig y Barcud, both of whom enjoy being stroked and, most of all, being fed! The goats are kept as pets and not milked.
Frosty and Oreo
Frosty was a surprise addition to the family when she appeared on a very cold and frosty morning in December 2008.
The brown Goat is called Oreo and joined us earlier this year. Oreo was born at Foel Farm Park. When she arrived, we asked our guest to vote on the name that best suited her and everyone agreed she suited Oreo.
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 is our feral cat, named after Dr Who’s companion! She was rescued by a local animal sanctuary, and joined us as a kitten in late 2007. Marhta is a working cat, and live in one of the outbuildings, mixing freely with the goats and other animals, whilst as a feral cats she will generally keep away from humans.
