Description

Goat Week at Pennywell Farm this October Half Term

It’s the goat-to event of the year as Pennywell brings you a new event to showcase our many goats, some of the format may seem somewhat familiar!

Sponsored by Goat Compare, Gruffts 2018 promises to be the worlds greatest goat show and visitors to the farm will be delivering the final verdict on which goat wins the coveted, ‘Best in Show’.

The goats will go through several rounds including agility and disobedience as well as being judged on their all-round condition and looks.

Pennywell’s Chris Murray says, “Our visitors love goats and our goats thrive on human contact and interaction, hence we came up with the idea of a goat show, Gruffts.

Goats are surprisingly intelligent, inquisitive animals and are already enjoying their preparations for the show”.

 Among the breeds represented will be Toggenburgs, Pygmy’s, Saanens, Anglo Nubiens and Golden Guernseys all of whom will be suitably groomed and prepared for the big occasion.

Gruffts 2018 will be taking place from 20thto 28th with a whole host of other goat themed activities, plus all Pennywell’s famous half hourly activities, shows, rides and displays.

As you might expect, opportunities for goat puns are plentiful. We had intended to promote the event on Social Media but were concerned that it might attract trolls!

Come and join the fun and vote for your favourite. Tickets are available now.
