Little Di is a miniature silky fainting goat. She was born extra extra small and with a birth defect – wry mouth. She was living on a breeding farm, and she was much too little to breed, and her wry mouth could be genetically transmitted. But the owner so loved her, that she just kept her separate from the boys. She realized that Di would be happier with more free reign on a farm where she would not be in danger of getting pregnant and we gladly brought her here.
Di is an honorary alpaca. She spends almost all her time with them, and even eats with them!
She was also best friends with Emma, a very tiny Shetland sheep. Emma came here with severe neurological problems and very underweight. We nursed her and loved her so much; eventually she lost her strength to walk. Di actually cried a tear when Emma passed away. They were so much alike, although Di came here in very good health.
She is a funny creature – so small that she fits in between the boards of any our fences. She has a high-pitched little voice and lets everyone know when it’s time for her dinner!
She also loves to do selfies.
