The Prodigal Daughter

Updated: Dec 20, 2018

As far as we know, we've been goating forever. As such, no more entitling posts temporally.

Since the last time we chatted, we've been launched our yogurt CSA. If you'd like to sign up or have any questions, please send us a message.

In other news, we've seen a Shakespearian tragedy play out on our stage (i.e. in the goat pen). It was like the prodigal son, but if the father (and non-prodigal son) completely forgot their long-lost kin...

You all know Voody & Zoo:

Well, they came from a lovely farm in western Maine named Humble Acres. What you don't know is that while we took home the two of them, Zoo's twin sister wasn't for sale. This week, though, that changed and of course we welcomed her into the herd to rejoin her mother sister.

Unfortunately, welcoming her into the herd isn't really our call. It's tough for any goat to join a new herd. They're usually at the bottom of the butting order and that's not a fun place to be. We had hoped that it would be easier on Ducky (as we call Dakini) because her mom would be there to protect her.... but it doesn't seem like Voody recognizes her. In fact, Voody is probably the meanest goat the in herd and Ducky is no exception for her. To make matters worse, Ducky seems to remember her family, and even tries to nurse when Zoo does, but Voody chases her away. :(

On the upside she seems to be getting along with the other kids, and they've started letting her play with them

At night, she's only with the other kids, and that seems to be alright with her. During the day though, she can be found hiding under the table where the big goats can't get to her. We try to give her all the love and snuggles we can. If you want to help her during this trying time, just send us a message to stop by and give her some love.
