Away in A Manger
Happy Saturday! This is my Saturday Critters post linking up with Eileen and as its so close to Christmas I thought I'd do a seasonal assortment of animals. We visited this large garden centre which is very popular at Christmas for families as they have a great Santa's Grotto and also this enclosed stable yard for animals.
The two donkeys I nicknamed Stan and Oliver because of their antics.
There are several cute pygmy goats
But what I really wanted to see was the reindeer, Reuben. Unfortunately he was kept in a very enclosed pen and was more stubborn than a mule, as he refused to turn around or lift his head :-(
So I'm afraid all I saw was his rear end. I was quite surprised by how small he was - no wonder Santa needs 12 reindeer to pull his sleigh!
Thanks to all who visit and comment - much appreciated!

Thank you to Eileen for hosting and hope you visit to see lots more critters!
