The Heavy Horse team at Banham Zoo are absolutely delighted with the birth of a Suffolk Punch filly foal, the 15th foal to be successfully born at Banham Zoo since 1991.
The new foal named ‘Bazoo Charity’ in honour of the Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA) the charitable trust, under whose auspices both Banham Zoo and its sister park Africa Alive! now reside.
Mother and foal are doing well and can been seen in the zoo paddocks all summer.
“Martin Goymour, Zoo Director, said “Nell is a special mare to us having been hand-reared. She is proving once again to be a super mum to her very pretty filly foal, and I am sure that zoo visitors will be as delighted as I am with this addition to the rare Suffolk horse breed”.
The Suffolk horses from Banham Zoo are used extensively promoting the breed at county shows and events. This year they have and are participating at the Royal Norfolk Show, the Lincolnshire Show, (22 & 23 June) the Weeting Steam Rally (16 & 17 July), The Heavingham Summer Fayre (2 & 3 July), The Worstead Village Festival (30 & 31 July) and The Suffolk Punch Spectacular at Kentwell Hall (4th September), and several other events and shows throughout East Anglia.
