Gilbert belongs to a group of goats collectively known as British primitive goats. They are related to the native goats of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and are among some of the first animals to be domesticated by man.
Gilbert came to us in June 2017 and not much is known about his background, According to what we know Gilbert was homeless and in a poor state of health, very thin and too weak to stand up, he was taken in by a good Samaritan who took him to her stables.
She couldn’t house him permanently though so asked if we could.
Gilbert’s health and condition have improved since and he now enjoys going out with his new friend William. Despite his ordeal Gilbert is very friendly towards people and has a gentle nature. Gilbert is popular with visitors and has a very impressive set of horns.
