Firm favourites with our supporters and how could they not be, each with their own distinctive personalities, positively overflowing with character! Goats can be quite a handful at times; a little like looking after naughty children into absolutely everything, but they are wonderful animals, so loving and bundles of fun. We adore them.
Our goat residents have all come from very different backgrounds and each has their own story to tell, some more unfortunate than others. However their story began, they all have a happy ending as they are now safe in their Forever Home here at the sanctuary together.
Different breeds, personalities, and ages, but one thing in common - friendship! Goats are very social animals and they have accepted every new member into their happy herd with an open heart. We can learn a lot from our animal friends.
We were able to rescue Ollie thanks to the support of our amazing "Goat Guardians" who rallied together to help us save him! Ollie was rescued thanks to the kindness and support of:
Kelly Evans, Ray Dedicoat at Hollytrees, Julie Byfield, Kelly Griffiths, Simon Powell, Laura Mahiques, Julie Buesnel, Stephanie Smith, Helen Kent, Olivia Seymour, D Phoenix, Megan Hill, Daniel Cooper, Patricia Clarke, Lorraine Penzer, Kayleigh Hodges, Bradley Autie, Helen Kent, Angela Pinheiro, Sam Taylor, Katie Hughes, Ruth Cooper, Adam Jones, Kim Vowles, Sarah Lloyd, Martin Clarke, Margaret Burns, Norman Caddick, Robert Jones, Emma Harrison, M Goodall, Carole Stokes, Pamala Quartey, Jude Hammersley, Elysia Pearson, Sarah Terry, Lisa Ellis, Karen Westwood, Emma Ward, Karen Smith, Annie Walters, Nikki Summers, Thomas Quinton, and Amanda Haynes.
We, and Ollie, are so very grateful to you all!
Have you taken a photo of our goats that you'd like to share with us? We'd love to see them - we are often so busy with our work that we don't get a chance to take photos or miss some of the magic moments that you capture, and we would love to see them through your eyes. If you'd like to share some of your photos, and maybe see them on our website, you can send them to us by email or share them on our Brockswood Friends Facebook Group. Please make sure you have permission to share if anybody's face is shown, especially young children. Thank you!
Forever in Our Hearts
Although these beautiful goats are no longer with us and are missed so very much, they live on always in our hearts and minds. As long as we continue to speak their names and tell their stories, they are still with us and will never be forgotten!
