Animals in the plays
Chester The Donkey
This is our beloved Chester who lives at Wintershall and appears in all our plays.
All of our animals rehearse, like the cast, to ensure they are happy and used to the environment around them. We have 600 sheep at Wintershall.
Horses in the Plays
This is George, one of several horses who have appeared in our plays, being ridden by Edward Hutley. George loved the attention of the crowds and particularly in Trafalgar Square. In the picture, he is being assisted by Tyra, one of our volunteers who is a very experienced animal handler and rider.
Kit - Our Adorable Young Sheep Dog
Kit helps to look after our sheep at Wintershall and he is still in training!
