Wellies-On Farm in Colchester is a 40 acre social farm (care farm) in the heart of the Essex countryside. Residents delighted in close encounters with sheep, goats and horses.

93 year old Coral Beams, said: “I love going to the farm, breathing the fresh air and cuddling the baby lambs.

“The only animals we had growing up were cats, but I’ve always loved horses and their majestic nature. Meeting the farm’s horse was a real treat. I wasn’t quite up to it on the day of the visit, but next time I want to try riding it!”
