An Only is Lonely

Here at the sanctuary we get a lot or people who visit and say that they want a goat or a donkey or a horse. This is bad. We educate people that these animals are herd animals and need to be with other animals of their kind.  At the very least if you are going to have these types of animals you need at least two.

Eeenie and Meenie have been together since they were babies and are never far from each other.

From a very young age these animals form bonds with one another. Farm animals like to have a friend to play with, eat with, sleep with and mutual grooming is also large part of their kinship. So, if you are interested in getting a herd animal please make sure you get him or her a buddy; they will much happier and better behaved! A reputable breeder or rescue will only let you adopt two. And please also make sure the males are neutered…we don’t want any unexpected babies.

These are my goats, Pepsi and Cola, they have been together since birth and never leave each others side.
