A dozen newborn lambs and goat kids have been welcomed into a Nottinghamshire farm this Christmas.

Seven baby goats and five lambs were born just in time to catch the festivities at White Post Farm in Farnsfield - with a few more expected to arrive in the next week.

Anthony Moore, a manager at the farm, said staff and visitors always look forward to this time of year because of their daily nativity plays, Santa’s Grotto and real reindeers sat in the barn.

But he thinks the main reason people pay them a visit at this time of year is to take a look at the newborns.

Farmer Anthony said: “They’re so beautiful and so friendly - visitors love them, and so do we.

“It makes us look forward to coming to work to see them bouncing around the farm.

Students from West Nottinghamshire College are also helping to care for the newborns as part of their animal care courses.

Schoolchildren will also soon be able to help out by bottle feeding the newborns as part of educational and interactive days out at White Post.

From insects and birds, to rodents and reptiles - the farm also has hundreds of other animals available to visit all year round.
