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:
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.
The Huseby hens
Together with the peacocks live a group of Huseby hens, a breed that Florence really liked and kept at Huseby during her time. They are back again in to groups, led by the cocks Karl and Greger. The hens lay small eggs and sometimes they turn into very cute chickens.
Two rabbits live next to the green house. Despite their difference in appearance, they are both part of the Swedish breed Gotland rabbit, and part of a preservation project. They are females and called Druva and Vide. Always curious and up for a chat.
Our four-legged friends
We also have severeal horse events during the seasons. The grass 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 exhibitions.
The Huseby dog
The dog Tutti works at Huseby. She helps her colleagues with a little of everything around the area. Sometimes she works at the castle, but you can also find her in the garden or at the office in the Old Forge where she runs things. Follow Tutti’s work on the instagram account “Husebyhunden”.
