Jorgie and Sally Run Amok

Lady wasn’t the only animal at sanctuary to get silly after the first rain. Our resident goats, Jorgie and Sally, also got incredibly excited, even though they don’t really like the rain or getting wet. When the two of them get extra energy, they can be a little boisterous – and a little funny. 

As the two began to frolic, which for them means running, hopping, butting heads, and generally throwing their full-sized goat bodies around, others began to scatter. Normally, the goats’ enthusiastic behavior might last about a minute or so, but this time their “zoomies” went on for about ten minutes. And they ran everywhere they could. Chickens were headed in all directions, people were dodging the goats; even the dogs tried to stay out of their way. The rain showed up near the end of the day, so there were plenty of people around, all trying to keep their distance from the two rambunctious animals (one of whom has horns) whose only plans were to celebrate the rain in their own way.

    Goats can definitely be silly! We used to have Bella and Abe (two incredibly funny goats) and, other than antagonists with the dogs, they were a riot.
