Josie & Gus in Need of a New Home

Location: Herron

In 2016, Josie and her baby boy Gus were dumped at a beach . Mandurah Wildlife Rescue were notified about the abandoned goats and they were taken in one of the organisation’s volunteers. Both mother and kid were very underweight, and Gus who was only 4-6 weeks old at the time had to be hand fed while his mother was treated for mastitis. Gus was so week he couldn’t stand on his own, and his carer was concerned that he wouldn’t survive. Thankfully he made it through this hard time, and is now a healthy young goat.

Josie and Gus are very affectionate. Gussy loves his head scratched between his horns and Josie loves a shoulder massage. They both love to go on walks with their carer and the resident dogs.

“Every morning Gus waits for me to have my coffee so he can put his head on my lap for a scratch – they are not normal farm yard goats. They roam free and graze the property all day and then wait for their rice cracker, nuts and/or fav veggies and fruit snack to go up to their pen for the night. Josie then comes and nudges me affectionately every morning when I let them out – I know this means thanks and then gallops off to enjoy her day.”

Josie was clearly mistreated by her original owners as she is scared or brooms and wouldn’t allow anyone to touch her head. But with time and lots of TLC she has learnt to trust again, coming to her carer for head and shoulder rubs.

Gus also has his own Facebook page Gus in the Wild West!

Unfortunately their carer needs to sell her property, and will no longer be in a position to provide a home for these gorgeous goats and we are looking for a loving new home for them. Josie and Gus will be vaccinated and wormed before handover to their new family. An adoption fee of $100 applies.

Jackson

Jackson (goat) Arrived 27th June 2017

On the 26th of June we received a phone call from a young man claiming to have found an infant goat wandering the streets. Worried that the kid may be hungry and well overdue for a feed, we had one of our volunteers rush to pick him up and bring him to the sanctuary to be fed and assessed.

As it turns out, the young man and his friends had purchased Jackson whilst intoxicated, a couple of weeks prior. They decided to surrender the goat to people that could care for him long term. Thankfully Jackson was in good health.

Goats are known for their colourful personalities, and Jackson is no exception. He loves attention and loves to have a nibble on peoples clothes.

 

Would you like to help us to take care of Jackson?  One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.

Laila

Laila (goat) Arrived 8th June 2017

In early June we received a call from Cockburn Pound, they had picked up a little goat that was found wandering. Unable to find her owner, they contacted us. Laila was picked up the next day and brought back to the sanctuary.

She was in rather poor condition when she first arrived, but has steadily gained weight and is now a healthy size.

She is a sweet-natured goat, inquisitive and loves human interaction. In her short time here she has already gained popularity with the HH team and volunteers due her sociable personality.

She will be joining the herd of goats soon, where she will enjoy a long life of grazing and frolicking with friends.

Cuddles

Cuddles (goat) Arrived 21 April 2017

In April 2017 we received a phone call from an animal pound. A little goat had been discovered homeless and wandering around on someone’s property.

Soon after he was picked up and brought to his forever home at Happy Hooves. He is a bit of a wild boy – not tame, and not at all interested in being around humans, so we affectionately named him ‘Cuddles’. He has since joined the goat herd, where he is happy and making lots of new friends.

Banjo

Banjo (goat) Arrived: 7 April 2017

Gorgeous Banjo was picked up from the Armadale pound back in early April. He had been found wandering in a rural area of the town. With no ear tags, his owner was unable to be identified.

The young goat was in poor physical condition, and his  little ears appeared to have been badly mauled and torn by an another animal (we assume a dog). He was taken to our vet for immediate treatment.

Banjo’s ears have healed nicely, and this sweet boy is settling into his new home at Happy Hooves. Currently he shares a yard with young friends; fellow kid Jasper, and the lambs Joey, Jasmine and Oliver. When he is old enough he will join the herd of over 20 goats here at the Sanctuary, where I’m sure he’ll make many more friends.

Jasper

Jasper (goat) Arrived: 20 January 2017

Jasper was a wild goat discovered in bushlands, with no mother in sight. Luckily for him, he was discovered and brought to Happy Hooves by some compassionate people.

At just four weeks old, Jasper needed to be bottle fed three times a day. Paul (HH Manager) had the honorary duty of being “goat mum”, and Jasper refused to be fed by anybody other than him. Jasper has grown so much since he arrived, but is still a big sook! He is now down to just one bottle in the evening, and will soon be weaned completely.

The lamb twins, Joey and Jasmine are Jasper’s new “housemates”, the three share a small paddock in our isolation area. This is where they will live until they are big enough, and strong enough to join the adult flock/herd of their species. Although Jasper is smaller than the lambs he fares just fine, often playing and bunting with Joey.

We’re very happy to add Jasper to the Happy Hooves family. Here, he will always be loved and cared for, surrounded by friends for the rest of his years.

A Castle for Sir William the Goat?

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

WORMED: Yes

DESEXED: Yes

VACCINATED: Yes

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)

We hope you can help us to help this lovely boy.. please fill in the Expression of Interest form below if you would like to know more, or offer to adopt.

Mimi

Mimi (goat). Arrived 30 May 2016

Sweet little Mimi comes from a very sad place. Her and her smaller sister were orphaned after their previous “owner” decided it would be a good idea to kill their mother so his children could hand-rear the kids. If that’s not tragic enough, Mimi’s twin sister didn’t make it – probably through a lack of mum’s first milk colostrum that all mammals need in the first few hours of birth.

But where there is evil, there is also good and we thank both Greener Pastures Sanctuary for rescuing her and a wonderful vet we know, who went out of her way to save Mimi.

We are so sorry you lost your sister, but we hope we can begin to make up for it by giving you a safe, loving, forever home with many goat buddies.
