Ernie is a Boer goat. He was born in 2015 and is very sweet and friendly to people, but a bit bossy when it comes to the other animals. He came to live here with his buddy Leo. Unfortunately, at their previous farm they encountered two German Shepherds who attacked and mauled them pretty badly. Ernie even lost part of his ear.
They needed a new place to go where they would be safe and, in fact, even protected BY dogs (and we have such wonderful livestock guardian dogs: Henry, Nicole, and Sam). They have become integrated into the Goat Mob, headed up by Mr. Newman Goat. They’re extremely friendly, but will go to any lengths to rob you of your food!
