This is very hard to do, but necessary. I'm finding as I get older I'm finding it harder to manage a larger herd, and it's time to scale back. I'm fond of every one of these animals, and some are especially dear. I'm looking for homes that love to dote on their goats! The most important things are ability and desire to care for them appropriately and lovingly. A few are available on adoption, and some of these have special needs as noted. Adoption requires a long-term, pet-only commitment, with a return to me clause.
Any bucks not rehomed by February will be wethered, so if you like him, talk to me now as he won't be available later!
Pets/Adoptions: Essie - 5 year old Exp. LaMancha. Extremely people friendly - loves everybody, very social! Gets along well with Nigerians. In fact, prefer to rehome her with Chou Chou. Needs a lot of people interaction. Pet only, no bucks on property, unlikely to survive another pregnancy.
Chou Chou (pronounced shoo-shoo) -small, black 4 year old Nigerian doe, very sweet and affectionate little introvert. She is the Yin to her bff Essie's Yang. Sidles up to you and gently tugs on your coat for attention. Adorable. Retired from breeding after difficult birth with trauma.
Squiffy: 2019 wether. Very, very small and sickly as a baby but seemed to have turned around and then broke his leg! Very sweet and gentle natured, loves cuddles. Excellent therapy goat prospect. Available after his leg is fully healed.
Ladybug: 2019 doeling. Severe trauma to her neck at a week old getting caught in a hay feeder. Appeared fractured but xrays confirmed it was significant trauma to cervical vertebra without fracture. She is recovered but sometimes moves head or neck differently. She should never wear a collar or halter as any sudden pressure or pull could re-injure her, but she can certainly wear a harness. Bug is very gentle natured and cuddly. She would be a good fit with Squiffy in a pet home, but would need a vet to clear her for suitability for therapy work. I will also adopt her out with her sister, Aster, as a companion.
Mr. Potato Head: 2019 wether. Crushing injury to spine at a week old, wasn't sure he'd make it but he did and then some! Potato is very outgoing and very people oriented (and yes, there is a story behind his name!). Wonderful Therapy goat prospect. He can be adopted with his littermate brother, Nougat.
