George is otherwise known as Georgeous George because he is!
George is a large pygmy goat and very handsome, he came to us in 2007 after his unhappy owner contacted us to say he was out of control. George had a caravan to live in at night and was tethered during the day, having systematically trashed his caravan. He then went to work on biting through his tether, the last straw came when he knocked his owner over. It was the spring of the year and my guess was that George was feeling lonely, goats after all are herd animals and even though George had been castrated he still yearned for the company of his own kind.
Luckily for George just before we got the phone call about him we had lost Treacle, one of our oldest goat residents, so we had a pen available for a newcomer.
George lived not far away so two of us set off in the car to collect him, he was tied up to a fence waiting for us and did not hesitate to jump into the car and sit on a knee for the journey home!
On arrival here George seemed to quickly understand that he had to keep a low profile until the other goats accepted him and this he did but it did not take long before the others allowed him into the herd and he has never looked back.
