Many students came out to see and even feed the animals. There was also an ice-cream van and the SU gave students vouchers to get free ice-creams and drinks on campus.

Third year student Jake said: “My favourite animal is the pony. I think having animals on campus is very good for your mental health.”

One of the course reps for the SU said: “This would also promote students well-being.”

It was a nice sunny day and students enjoyed themselves.
