Goats are wonderful and very gregarious creatures. Unfortunately, goats as pets can be problematic because they are very curious and they like to wander into neighbors’ properties. They will often decimate trees by stripping off their bark and will easily consume an entire garden in one afternoon. Lucky Glider Rescue & Sanctuary has numerous goats that proved troublesome for their previous owners. Here at Lucky Glider Ranch in Clifton Texas, we have goat-proof “no-climb fencing that keeps them in their designated area. The goat pasture is surrounded by a donkey pasture so the goats are not preyed upon by mountain lions or coyotes.
In this video, you can see some of the rescue goats playing “king of the hill.” The one tall blonde goat is “Rufus.” He and other members of his family came to the rescue after their donor’s neighbor kept shooting at them when they busted down a rickety fence and foraged for food. Now they are safe and happy and take center stage when volunteers and visitors come to the rescue operation.
