Our resident goats, Jorgie and Sally, and Milo the lamb love to greet Scott when he returns from a trip to the habitat. They get excited when they see the 4-wheeler because, once a day, it returns with some of Alma’s favorite browse – primarily branches that have been cut for her to enjoy. And all three of them find her preferred treats delicious. So, when the 4-wheeler comes near the house, Jorgie, Milo, and Sally tend to help themselves. (Of course, we don’t let them take too much, since it’s meant for Alma.) They will sometimes help themselves to leftover hay in the back, if they are in the mood.
Just like domestic pets need some love and affection, so do Jorgie, Sally, and Milo. Here, you can see Milo and Sally make an appearance, sniffing around for something interesting. Jorgie is more excited to see Scott and get some satisfying head scratches. (You can see that the animals are still getting their fill of mangoes by Jorgie’s dirty face.)
