Measles & Morag
While not for Adoption these two are stars in their own right on the farm and very much a part of what happens at puffin croft. While this photo was taken when Morag was just a kitten her destiny was always to be the mousekeeping Matriarch and there are now a family of cats at the croft. Measles is without doubt Miss Puffins Shadow. Happy and friendly with everyone she meets she is what makes the Farmhouse Home.
Jack is 9 years old and can be a bit cheeky! visitors often think he's Jenny's foal because he is much smaller than her.
Jenny is 14 years old and the biggest animal on the farm. Jack and her have had 4 foals over their life together but are now retired with Olive being her last. She is a gentle girl and an amazing mum.
Olive turns 2 in May 2020 - she is cheeky and sweet at the same time a real mix of mum and dad. She will be fully grown at 5years old but is already bigger than her dad!

Willow - an Anglo-Nubian Cross and twin sister to Beans. She has one horn shorter than the other. When she was with her first owner she got her horn stuck in a fence.
