Project Description

Gary the goat is always popular with the visitors, he’s friendly, inquisitive and usually up to something daft. Gary is usually full of beans and doesn’t let anything get him down. He doesn’t have much of an attention span so he’s looking for something to keep him occupied usually play fighting with his best pal Jacob.
Gary was brought to the sanctuary in April 2014 due to his worsening health problems. Gary was born with a weakness in the joints and tendons in his front legs and as he grew larger and heavier they could no longer support his weight leaving him trying to crawl on his knees to get about. Despite this Gary kept a good nature. Our vets fitted him with splints to support his legs and after a number of months his joints and tendons had strengthened allowing him got get about as normal without his splints.
