We take a minimum of seven equines each time for the pony rides. The ponies and donkeys have a meal before they start and are on the job for about half to three-quarters of an hour each when they are given a break to have a drink and hay if they wish.
Children who come to the market regularly often choose the same pony each time. I know there are several photos of Star and Dannyboy on children's bedroom walls. Even Shadow, the donkey, has a following. One child has him on his pillowslip.
The petting farmyard will be operational when the yards are dry. There are sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, miniature horses and sometimes Shadow the donkey.
The fees at the Market when the farmyard is operational are::
$10 for a ride and a visit to the farmyard.
When no farmyard - pony rides only: $8 ride - two for $15.
Every Sunday by 8 a.m. there will be a notice on the front page of this website to say whether we will be at the market or not.
Hope you enjoy our animals on your next visit to the Clevedon Farmers Market.
