Lucky was originally rescued from the abattoir, where he was in line for slaughter. He was brought to friends who wanted a goat for “lawn mowing”, and he performed this function well for a few years. However, the grounds are now landscaped and Lucky was no longer needed. He was terribly lonely ( goats have a strong herd instinct and HATE being alone), so Lucky was constantly breaking whatever chain or cable he was on and jumping the fence to be nearer to people.
His family asked if we would please give him a permanent home, and we agreed. Lucky is now happily settling in with our white goat Nellie, and they make a perfect pair. He runs around in the paddocks and enjoys his freedom – and the company.
