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.
Minature shetland ponies

Mr Bingley - a rather handsome fellow! A pot bellied boar with impressive tusks and beautiful eyes! he is the oldest pig on the farm and is on soft food only these days. He thinks he wants to be big and bad but if you can scratch him behind his ears he melts!

Rose - Black micro-pig. Happy little girl who loves her food and sleep more than anything else! she can be grumpy to Thistle but they get on like an old married couple and most of the time her tail is wagging. We are hopeful that rose and Thistle will be first time parents in the near future.
