WOODFEST COUNTRY SHOW
Simon, from Ferret World, is back by popular demand again this year
The ever-popular “Black Country Man”, Simon, from Ferret world is back by popular demand again this year.
The children just love this educational activity and have great fun entering the countryside arena with Simon (the sweetie drop is also very popular!)
Our ferret display is a visual Feast of Ferrets suitable for all age groups.
Firstly, Simon Bishop gives a talk on the history of ferrets, where they came from and what they are used for, right up to the modern ferreter and the equipment they use.
As part of his talk, Simon also brings in animal welfare, the food chain and possible health problems that owners new and old may experience from time to time, but is also of interest to the public.
Following this is a Ferret Fun Run:
Are you Ready? Are you Steady? Then let's Go!
Two teams Race the Ferret, but All are Winners
Then we get to Meet the Ferrets. “hands-on “
Maybe there's two ferrets, or is that cheating ??
Lots of Laughs, plenty of jokes, and a Feast of Ferrets!
Just some of the fun that the children have when racing the ferrets.
The younger members of the audience take an active part in the race by going head to head with the ferrets in special tubes their size. This part is “hands on".
Simon acts as a race official and judges for the races, but everyone wins in the end! We aim for two teams, the children not only racing the ferret but also the other team.
Throughout the day, whenever Simon isn't appearing in the arena, he is usually available for Q & A on all aspects of ferrets.
