Wallace A Twin of Gromit born May 4, 2015. He is a LaMancha, a breed from Mexico that has no ear cartiledge. He can hear very well but it makes their faces look like they are alien and takes some time getting used to. They are known to be sweet and amusing. He is Tan or Fawn colored with minimal stripes, He is the smaller of the two and the quieter one. He is gentle and kind and is more tolerable to change then his twin brother. When he talks, it’s almost in a whisper. He likes to lead the pack when they go on browse hikes.
Gromit Twin of Wallace and born 4 May 2015. Also a Lamancha. Gromit is gray, black and white. He’s very comical and will do silly things. He is also the biggest of the 7 that we have today. He is gentle and kind, and loves his daily browse hikes. He weighs about 80 lbs. His nickname is Grommie.
Rocky Two of triplets, Rocky is a Nubian breed and was born on 24 May 2015. They have long ears and are much broader and solid than the LaManchas. Rocky is the smallest of the herd. He is dappled brown with white ears. He likes to swing his ears around but doesn’t like anyone to touch them. He seems to be more independent of the four – but will come when called or when someone is holding his favorite snack – a peanut. When going on a browse hike, he tends to try to be upfront, but Wally won’t let him. He plays with his brother often, swinging his head and pretending to head butt. He also likes to just stand on his rock wall and look around.
Bullwinkle is the most solid of the four. Born on 24 May 2015 he is Rocky’s brother and one of three. He was the biggest when he was born. He was all legs and ears! He is brown with dark highlights. He also likes to swing his ears around but tolerates people rubbing his ears. He loves to be hugged and sniff-kisses me every day. He will stay near me when we browse hike unless he finds a yummy sapling or his favorite -the very invasive “Burning Bush”, then he make a mad dash and devourers as much as he can before we move on in our hike. His nickname is Bully but he is in no way mean. He is gentle and kind like his three brethren.
Manny is a half-brother of both Wallace and Gromit. Born on 24 June, 2015, he is dark brown with tan stripes. He has woddles which is a rare trait in his family line. He has also curlier fur then his half-brothers. He came to us in March 2016 a little underweight and small for his age. He is thriving here and the herd has taken him in and he romps, chomps and plays with the rest of the bunch of munchers! He too, is a very gentle goat.
Yogi and Booboo Only 11 days old when this picture was taken! Born on 16 March 2016 Yogi is the creamed color LaMancha and BooBoo is the black and white one. They too, are two of Triplets. Unfortunately their biggest brother did not make it, but these little guys are doing very well and growing like weeds! They love to be out in the sun, and only drink from a bottle at this time. Next week they will be introduced to hay and grain. Follow our Blog for more information on these guys as they grow!
