The latest animal on Sunflower Farm is a tiny chihuahua puppy named Lola. On her first day at the farm she was feeling a little shy, but as soon as she saw the goat kids (Princess Leia and Lady Bug) she warmed right up. We figure she was likely missing all her puppy friends and goats act a lot like puppies. Daisy is trying to perfect her goat leap so she can fit in with the kids. Princess Leia likes her best and thinks it’s funny to lick her face and chew on Lola’s tail and ears. Interestingly our older dogs, an English Mastiff and a pug are not at all interested in Lola, so she depends on the goats for fun and games!
Lola now enjoys daily playtime with her goat friends. Princess Leia (the cream colored goat), always invites her to play with a toss of her head and seems to protect her when Ladybug (the brown spotty goat) gets a bit jealous of their friendship and occasionally head buts the pup away. They play each day when I am doing chores…great exercise for the puppy who is full of energy and fun! The puppy is now 9 weeks old and the goats are three weeks.
Sunflower Farm is a no cull dairy farm which means every goat lives out their life even after they are done producing. On many dairy farms, the bucklings are immediately killed. Ours are neutered and sold as pets. We have a couple (Don Pedro and Rocky) and they are delightful pets! Much like having outdoor dogs. Any goat kids we can’t keep are sold to great families in pairs as pets or future milking goats. People put their names on a waiting list a year in advance so our kids never go to new homes as an impulse buy. You can read more about our unique farming philosophy on our farm website.
Thanks for checking out our kids!
