Le Galopin is an educational farm that breeds and cares for several animal species, for companionship only, such as: miniature American donkeys, ponies and mini-shetlands, goats, Ouessants sheep, peacocks, poultry, Hermann tortoises, miniature pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs and many more...

You will be able to enter certain enclosures under supervision and stroke them.

Le Galopin is a peaceful, relaxing environment in harmony with nature and the animals, which is why it is essential to call us to make contact and book in order to control the number of visitors and avoid stressing the animals.

Most of Le Galopin's animals are born all year round, and depending on the season, you will be able to observe them, or even touch them, depending on when you visit.

Visits are free, so that everyone can move around according to their own wishes and preferences, and at their own pace. Most people spend an average of 1? hours on the site, but there's no time limit and you can stay as long as you like, right up until closing time, when some of the animals are returned to the stables and fed.

Pony and donkey rides, in an enclosed area specially designed for children's safety, are also available, again by prior arrangement, for the youngest visitors accompanied by their parents.

Le Galopin is also a facility that takes in animals in need and cares for them until the end of their lives.

Boarding facilities for retired equines are also available, subject to availability.

New: Creation of a shop to sell farm produce (organic eggs, vegetables, etc., subject to availability), as well as local products from our partners and souvenirs related to nature and Le Galopin's animals.
Le Galopin is open all year round, depending on the weather and the needs of the farm.

Le Galopin only sells some of its miniature American donkeys, its toy, dwarf and semi-dwarf kids, its Ouessant lambs, its Shetland and mini Shetland ponies, his peacocks, his geese, his guinea pigs etc

Acquiring an animal is a considered act, and it is necessary to prepare this project in advance with us, not to take an animal alone and to reserve it.
