The Animals at Huseby
Down in the kitchen garden you will find the Stephens’s dog house, where in the past, pugs and other small furry dogs of different breeds used to run around. Nowadays it’s the peacocks that strut around in the nice little yellow octagonal house. The gang now living in the old dog’s house include:
Farbror Blå (Uncle Blue)
Believes himself to be the most elegant guy in the world, and he is fully convinced that all ladies with or without wings love him. But beneath the inflated façade, a nice little man with a big blue heart is hiding.
A real diva who knows what she wants and controls everyone who comes close to her. She is a very good mother who, with strict and firm wings, is able to raise even the worst hooligans. She is a real peacock-pearl.
The group’s drama queen and hypochondriac. Has somewhat of a limp from an injury he suffered in his youth, but if ask him yourself, the injury occurred as he tried to save a beautiful maiden from fainting. For the most part he struts around on steady legs, but when he does not get what he wants, he limps more than usual.
A shy little snow-white flower who loves sweets. She is a bit reserved for the most part, but when there are sweets around, she tilts her head to the side and blinks with her beautiful eyes. She is such a nice little sweetie who you just have to love.
During the summer, a group of hens move into the newly built hen house down by the greenhouse. The hens are borrowed by Fjäderfäföreningen. A cooperation we are very pleased with. Fjäderfäförerningen organise two very popular exhibitions at Huseby.
Our four-legged friends
We also have severeal horse events during the seasons. The grass down in the kitchen garden is cut by means of real horsepower, and part of the haymaking is also made by horse. Our beautiful stable often houses handsome horses of different kinds, among other things, the Ardennes Club has stallion shows and foal shows.
