DOG AND DUCK SHOW
Stuart and his team use trained and untrained sheep dogs to herd ducks, amusing and educating the audience about common dog behaviour issues and about how these can be resolved. The show demonstrates how untrained and poorly behaved dogs still have a programmed natural instinct, giving the audience a new understanding of the Way of the Dog. Dog and Duck website
The Dog and Duck Show will be performing in the main arena at 11.45am and 4.45pm
ALDABRA GIANT TORTOISES
We encourage people to ask questions and interact with the animals and we can help and educate people who do keep them or are thinking of taking on a tortoise as a pet.
Visitors who are particularly keen and interested, will be allowed to come into the arena to take photos, and get up close and stroke the tortoises, and we just ask those individuals for a small donation for the extra experience.

At least 3 coracles will be on display where the visitor can sit in one and photos taken etc. The coracle weighs around 30lbs and visitors (if they wish) are allowed to carry the coracle on their backs in the traditional manner.
Visitors are intrigued by the size and construction of the vessel and once seen many wish to make one and paddle them on water.
Bryan’s display will include snakes, spiders, insects, meerkats, kune kune pigs, pygmy goats, rabbits, guinea pigs etc, many of which can be touched enabling show visitors the opportunity of a HANDS-ON experience they may not have had before. Bryan is very keen to get children involved in his presentations as he strongly believes that giving children the opportunity to learn about some of these more unusual animals at close quarters will perhaps encourage some of them to become the conservationist’s of the future. All animals are captive bred and are used to being handled in a show environment. Wildlife Displays website
