The farm animals
Skåri farm is a good place to live, both for the two-legged as well as for the four-legged. «Trym» is a horse of the most common norwegian breed «Fjording». He is a good worker on the farm and used for transporting hay and carrying loads. He is very kind and calm and much used for riding. «Prawda» is a thoroughbred mare, elegant and a little bit sophisticated. She came to us in october 2017 and is only used as a riding horse. She has earlier been a race horse on the well-known norwegian race tracks in eastern Norway, and has earned quite a lot of money on those tracks. In June 2019 she gave birth to her first foal, "Ramona" of Skåri.
During the spring and summer we have approximately 20 sheep and lambs around the farm. The very old breed "Gammelnorsk spelsau» or "Old Norwegian Short-tailed sheep" has a thick, long and gorgious wool and some impressive horns. The big ram «Hulken», is the father of the sheep. In spite of his fierce looks, he is the most gentle and loving animal. Our 12 goats stay up in the hills around the farm, leaded by lovely «Dokka». They come from the African breed «Boer», and are muscular and agile.
On the farm we have several cats. «Lillebatman» , «Svartebart» and «Gråpusen» are adults, but we occasionally have kittens as well. Our dog, «Keano» is a labrador and he is very energetic and friendly.
All the animals, except for the dogs and the cats, are outside the fence surrounding the farm. So it is your choice if you would like to keep a distance or get to know them close-up.
