Hope Taylor

Special calf

Hope Taylor


Hope Taylor born late April 2020 mother Picot father unknown.

Hope Taylor is a special female hippo as she is the first calf for Picot. Her first name Hope was won in the name the hippo raffle by Teresa D’Amico of NY NY, USA. A very appropriate choice of name. I was then contacted by a lovely person who told me that her young cousin Taylor had sadly passed away in December 2019 and her favourite animal had been a hippo.
In memory of Taylor I asked Teresa if she would mind giving Hope a second name, and she readily agreed. Strangely enough Picot was actually named for very lovely French girl who also loved hippos and had a terminal disease and has since passed. She had her own hippo soft toy Picot and also loved hippos. So Hope Taylor is very special indeed.
