Oaklands residents, families and staff had the joy of welcoming Popell Barns mobile farm for a Christmas visit. With a ten year old Max, the miniature Mediterranean donkey, tinsel adorned, we were all getting into the seasonal spirit. Max was accompanied by sheep Matilda, who is a white Telekom crossbreed and Beanie, a brown Ryeland breed of sheep. Everyone noticed how different their fleeces were. White rabbit, Cotton Tail, visited residents in their rooms. The visitors from the farm brought much joy and a lot of reminiscence around our residents experiences with animals.
