Woolly's Birthday

Saturday 7th July 2018 - Saturday 7th July 2018

Happy Birthday Woolly The Sheep.

Excitement is mounting at the BIG Sheep’s award winning family attraction as staff get ready to plan a huge surprise party for Woolly, the BIG Sheep’s giant mascot on Saturday 7th June.

When Rick Turner, director of the flock at the BIG Sheep, found Woolly taking shelter in the animal barn in June 2010, he was already fully grown so no one knows exactly just how old the lovable sheep is.   

Since his arrival Woolly has entertained the thousands of guests who visit The BIG Sheep each year.  Woolly is probably the most photographed sheep in the world and guests love having their picture taken with him.  Woolly is well known to all the team at the BIG Sheep for being a bit of a prankster – he has played April Fool jokes on visitors,  sneaked into the Ewetopia, the attraction massive indoor play area to have fun on the slides when no one is watching.  Woolly has at times been known to hide when he is supposed to be presenting the winner’s of the BIG Sheep’s famous EWETOXTER Sheep race at the end of each day.  

Colin Harris the BIG Sheep ride’s team manager who is best friend with Woolly decided it would be lovely to organise a surprise birthday for his sheep friend and is planning lots of fun games and a disco so all Woolly’s friends can enjoy his very first birthday party with him.

If you would like to design and make your very own special birthday card for Woolly there will be a special prize for the card Woolly likes the best.  All cards should be send to Nicola Alder at The BIG Sheep no later than Friday 29th June 2018.
