William – affectionately known as “Billy” is in need of a new home as his owner was very ill and no longer able to care for him.
NHRFA found out about his plight and arranged for an urgent temporary home for him. He was an entire male and seemed very wary and demonstrated fear when approached by humans, so we knew he needed some TLC and vet work before he could find a forever home.
The amazing people at Paradise Pastures Farm Animal Sanctuary took him in and looked after him post castration surgery. They worked tirelessly to gain his confidence and show him that people mean him no harm.
Billy is now a much happier goat – and very ready to find a loving family who will keep him safe and secure. Could this be with you?
QUICK REFERENCE LIST:
NAME: Sir William (aka Billy)
AGE: Approximately 3 years
BREED: Unsure – Miniature Cross (?)
HEIGHT: 90cm to shoulder (approx.)
WEIGHT: 40kg approx
TEMPERAMENT: Very feisty but loves to play and receive scratches.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Billy is prone to getting a bit bossy over food so he needs a confident handler. He would really suit a home with other goats to play with. Goats need very good fencing as they are escape artists by nature. Ring-lock and line wire (top) is the best, at a height of approx 130-140cm. They are browsers, not grazers, so they will eat trees and bushes. They require regular vaccinations and good nutrition (contrary to popular belief, goats cannot survive on tin cans!) as well as shelter from the elements and vet care when unwell.
ADOPTION FEE: $70 (negotiable with the right home)
