Baby animals

The cheep show

Exclamations of ‚Aw, how cute!’ can be heard coming from South Tyrol’s stables when Easter comes around. Everywhere you can hear cheeping, chirruping and mewing, as the farm animals show off their young and chicks, baby rabbits, kittens, puppies, calves, piglets, foals, kid goats and lambs all compete for your attention.

Farm cats discover the world

Where’s that mouse? Kittens are born blind, but after about a week their eyes start to open and a week later they’re off exploring. Human playmates are always welcome.

Meek little balls of wool

Soft, cuddly and snow-white: lambs are baby sheep of up to six months old. After they are one year old they provide the farm family with wool and milk or act as lawn-mowers, eating the tasty grass and keeping it short.
Pop-up calves

Cows come into the world with their eyes open and legs ready to stand on soon after their birth. They love being tickled on the head.
Cheeky puppies

Cheeky puppies

You just can’t be angry with them: you can even forgive the little rascals for nibbled shoes or dirty sofas. Wrinkly foreheads, huge eyes and a loyal “woof” melt the heart of small and large dog lovers.
A love of horses

A love of horses

Small ponies or foals should get used to humans as soon as possible, preferably by using gentle touch. This is what forges lifelong friendship. Horses may not be ridden until they are three years old.
