Training Baby Goats
We have 17 new baby goats and are working hard to train them during our Coronavirus- stay at home sequester. Coronavirus has not been fun for most people- including the goats! They are really missing the attention of their many human friends they meet every day at goat yoga. We try to keep them busy- although they dont know much about social distancing. This goat has caught on to it right away. Her name is Marchmellow because she is white and fluffy. Because we have so many baby goats, they keep us pretty busy… especially our house goats Tie and Runtilstilsken. Runtilstilksen is actually our oldest goat, however hewas a runt out of 3 babies, so he is half the size of all the other goats. His mom sadly rejected him because he was not strong enough to survive on his own. Although sad, this is actually not uncommon among all animals. We took him in of course, and our home became an ICU. We had to nurse him back to health. He is now thriving.
Our other house goat, Tie, was also rejected by his mom- Beau. We named him Tie because of his mom- Beau-Tie, Get it? She had a very difficult delivery and could not take care of him. Luckily she and little Tie survived… and he already had a friend- Runtle. They are now brothers and play and cuddle every night. It is a lot of work taking care of all these litte guys, but certainly is worth it! Come take a class!
