Where? Brecon Beacons, Wales
What better way to explore the majestic surroundings of the Brecon Beacons this spring than accompanied by miniature donkeys? Join sweet miniatures Maverick, Goose, Bertie and Betty for a hillside picnic and enjoy sweeping views of Pen y Fan, the highest peak in the national park.
Run by Good Day Out, there’s also an opportunity for you to play games and negotiate obstacles with the donkeys in a schooling area, while learning about how they respond to body language and voice commands. Or embark on a piggy walk and ‘Pig-Nic’ with Kunekune pigs Holly, Hazel and Willow. During the warmer months the route passes the Senni River, meaning visitors can paddle with the pigs before venturing back for tea and cream cakes.
Maybe you’d like to try your hand at commanding a traditional Welsh Border Collie to move sheep around a field while learning more about life on a working farm? With expert help from a trainer who competes at international sheep dog trials, you can master the commands and hand signals and discover just how easy – or hard – it can be!
