We are excited to welcome our adorable new miniature Shetland Ponies at Meadow Lakes! Come and say hello to Alfie & Rufus, who can’t wait for you to come and meet them!
Kingpin, our chocolate coloured donkey and Zentor, our dusty grey donkey, came to Meadow Lakes from a donkey sanctuary in 2001 at a young age. They are very friendly, laid back and love a bit of attention! Their favourite snacks are apples and carrots, which they like to munch in the morning and evening and you may even see them playing together. Although this looks quite rough at times, it is perfectly normal Donkey behaviour! Donkeys can live up to a grand 40 years of age and as Kingpin and Zentor are still quite young, they have many happy years left at Meadow Lakes.
We have seven female guinea pigs that all live together here at Meadow Lakes. They are all very friendly, love being cuddled and adore being fussed over by visitors and staff.
Sunshine our cheeky new pony, came to Meadow Lakes in 2015, she loves her new home at Meadow Lakes and enjoys having our guests come to say hello. She is especially popular with the kids because of her cute pink nose!
We have three goats here at Meadow Lakes, our oldest resident being Menace, the brown goat, who lives up to his name sometimes! We also welcomed our new goats Charlie and Lola who are brother and sister, to Meadow Lakes in September 2014, both cheeky and lovable, they’ve settled in well and all the staff and our lovely customers adore them! They all enjoy to go on walks around Meadow Lakes in the sunshine, but can be found tucked up in their pens when it’s a rainy day.
As well as our most popular locals at Meadow Lakes, we also have ducks and chickens that can be found having a wonder around Meadow Lakes, keep an eye out and you may spot one! The chickens are a friendly bunch and don’t mind being picked up, just make sure you don’t squeeze them too tight! We also have two feline friends that live here with us on Park, called Picklelilly (who has white whiskers) and Shadow. They are both girls and black in colour and you’ll be sure to spot one of them sunning themselves in one of the fields!
As Meadow Lakes benefits from a fantastic rural location in the Cornish Countryside, all sorts of different wildlife can be found here, especially around our fishing lakes. So why not grab your camera and take a walk around and see what you can see!
