ANIMAL OLYMPICS THIS BANK HOLIDAY AT HOO FARM (17th August 2012)

With the country suffering from an Olympic hangover, Hoo Farm is offering the ultimate cure - Animal Olympics at Hoo, on Monday 27th August 2012, from 10am - 5.30pm.

Daily events will differ slightly to the usual timetable as the animals and staff show off their highly practiced performances in the hope of a gold, silver or bronze medal.
With help from the visitors, staff and animals the events on the day will include:
• The Goat Feeding Race
• The Egg and Spoon race Eggstravaganza
• Wallaby Long Jump
• Sheep 110m hurdles
• Lamb 100m Sprint (for their bottles)
• Goat Race Cross Country
• Hoo Farm Sheepdogs Dog agility

As well as the full time table of events their will also be plenty of opportunity to walk the farm trail and meet all the other animals and see what Olympic sport they would be best at entering.

Pony rides will take place from 2pm and the indoor and outdoor play areas provide ample opportunity for young and old to burn off any left over energy.

The t-room will be offering hot and cold homemade snacks whilst the gift shop provides plenty of mementos from your day at Hoo!
