The Wild West extravaganza was opened by a highly skilled chicken brought to us by Amazing Animals. The rooster has gone home to Chipping Norton with puffed up feathers at her starring role.
We had a Bison led cart, the Eriskay pack-ponies Max and Percy and the audience favourites terriers Griffin and Hades. Everyone is enjoying the space and freedom that Fennells Farm gives one and all.
Jerry the donkey made a welcome comeback this year as the Sheriff's trusted 'horse' Silver Bullet. Although known to be stubborn by nature, he worked well under the supervision of the horse department and enjoyed his turn in the ring. On the run from the Sheriff was the notorious El Gifford and Giffords Circus' very own 'black beauty' Jim.
Dandi, Cartouchio & Jack - our Spanish horses - transformed themselves this year in true western style. 'Dangerous' Dan Fortt rode Dandi expertly through the ring of fire. The line-dancing pair, Jack and Cartuchio did the Dosey Doe taking Dan and Dany through their paces. Since returning to Fennells Farm the horses have all been turned out and are enjoying a welcome break from the Wild West.
