Festive Pet photo competition winners announced!

07 January 2022

In December we launched our first ever pet photo competition, offering lovely pet owners across the land the chance to win 3 bales of our premium Timothy Hay (one of each tasty variety) and some special festive treats to tickle the tastebuds of 3 lucky furry friend winners.  

Friends of Newhay on our social channels were invited to take a snap shot of their small pet either dressed up for the festive season, or with a festive backdrop between 14-28th December, and post in the comments on Facebook/Instagram for a chance to win. 

Everyone at Newhay were so delighted with the results which put a big festive smile on everyone's faces and made us feel all Christmassy leading up to the big day and beyond.

Our fantastic festive pet model entries...

Take a look at all of the fabulously festive pets who took part on Facebook and Instragram over the 2 week competition period (thanks to their owners for posting and showing them off in all their festive cuteness!)

We are sure you will agree, as did our very own judge, farmer Ian Burrows that each and every one of the entries we received were definitely festive, all so cute and well behaved posing for the camera that it was very hard for Ian to choose 3 winners! 

And the 3 winners are...

1. Caroline Palin - My guinea pigs, Martha, Esme and Gus are so piggin' excited for Christmas! 

Ian chose this photo as one of his winners, commenting that "this was a great effort, especially keeping all three still and all dressed up!"

 2. Carol Caulfield - Rommel the rabbit in his festive hat.

Ian liked this photo a lot because "Rommel in Santa Hat… Just gives you that Santa feeling you can almost hear the voice. HO HO HO !!"

Ian chose this as his third winner which clearly tugged at his heartstrings; "Deborah Hardwick Sefton with Guinea Pig in a party hat ready for Christmas, seriously cute…..what more can I say!"
