Though they came to Farm Sanctuary years apart, they act as though they’ve known each other forever. We love seeing how they keep growing better, together!
Since these two came to Farm Sanctuary from similar situations, it’s no wonder that they’ve formed a special bond. Each had been kept in a private home as a companion animal — and in both cases, circumstances had left them alone, without any other goats around to make them truly feel at home.
Because goats are herd animals, an only goat truly is a lonely goat. Freddy, for one, took his isolation quite hard. Though his human family loved him and tried to do right by him, he needed much more than they could provide. Freddy would often escape his quarters — perhaps in search of the companionship he craved from other goats. His family grew worried for his safety and brought him to a local animal shelter, hoping that he might find a better match for his needs.
