Anglo Nubian Hillside Goats
We welcomed 6 Anglo Nubian bottle fed boys, on loan from Thrift Farm Holdings, Essex in February 2022.
They are so mischievous, bouncy and nibble everything!!
Our children in year three study goats so they all got to bottle feed them and now they're a bit bigger they feed from the bucket mainly.
Unfortunately, we lost our largest goat, Frank to twisted gut, which is common in bottle fed animals. We were devastated! But where there is life there is death and where there is a farm there are still hungry mouths to feed.
So Phill, Ollie, Billy, Donald and Idris are now thriving on their hill side enclosure.
We have them until they are 18 months, when we have the choice whether to start again with more bottle fed babies or keep the ones we have!
