An Update on Phillip


Phillip slept most of the 3 hr journey to his new home. I consider that a good sign that he felt safe and comfortable to not just lay down but to sleep.

Once there, they put him on a lead and walked him around the property to meet everyone. He met chickens, a pig, a dog and of course his new herd two ladies. He was even out together with them in the enclosure.

Phillip seems to be settling in and the ladies are the boss. That’s ok, the herd dynamics are sorted out by the strongest or most dominate goat. He will be at the bottom until he proves himself and they will become his harem.

I’m very happy for everyone but most of all for Phillip,
