Duckyls Farm Know Who Will Win the Euros After Their Horse Ace Picked the Croatian Flag

The Duckyls Farm residents who have learning disabilities, are thoroughly enjoying the Euro Championships and made flags to represent the teams, in one of their weekly art and craft sessions.

Having seen a lion from the Cotswold Wildlife Park incorrectly predict that the match between England and Serbia would end in a draw, Keri Strugnell, the Care Farm and Community Manager, at Duckyls Farm asked the residents if they thought Ace, one of the farm horses might be better at predicting results.

The residents loved the idea and an experiment was set up to pick the Euro winner. The residents formed a line with all the flags they had made and Ace a 15 year old New Forest x Thoroughbred was encouraged to pick the winner.

Without hesitation Ace made straight for the Croatian flag.

Keri Strugnell, the Care Farm and Community Manager at Duckyls Farm said, “Despite Croatia losing their opening game 3-0 to Spain, and drawing 2-2 with Albania on 19 June, Ace is confident that the Croatian team will be lifting the trophy on 14 July.”
