LEESIL

Leesil is the largest of the pygmy goats. He is friendly and often asks people to scratch his head. He, along with the other goats, eats a healthy and well-regulated diet of hay and grain but enjoys small snacks of white bread. Here he is with his donkey friend, Emma.

Julie

Julie is one of the smaller pygmy goats, along with Lily and Matilda. She has a beautiful buttermilk coat and an intense curiosity, though is the most skittish of the goats. She is particularly fond of Melvin and was the first goat that he bonded with upon arriving at the sanctuary.

Rescue Goats at Mountain View Farm Animal Sanctuary

 

  • The female goat is called a “doe” or “nanny.”
  •  The male goat is called a “buck” or “billy.”
  • A castrated male goat is called a “wether.”
  • A baby goat is called a “kid.”
  • The life span of a goat is on average 8-12 years.
  • Goats do not have teeth in their upper front jaw.
  • Both male and female goats can have beards.
  • Baby goats (kids) are standing and taking their first steps within minutes of being born.
  • Goats do not like to get wet and will seek shelter if it is raining.
  • Counter to the dominant stereotype about goats being willing to eat anything, they are actually very picky eaters. They have very sensitive lips, which they use to “mouth” things in search of clean and tasty food. They will often refuse to eat hay that has been walked on or lying around loose for a day.
  • Goats are herd animals and will become depressed if kept without any goat companions. So, it is unhealthy for a goat if a family just owns one as a pet.
