We miss the goat so much! (This morning, I was scooping a litterbox and it smelled really bad so I made a muffled noise of disgust. My mom, who was on the other side of the room, said, "Oh my gosh, I miss Hamish so much that I can actually hear him still!" I had to tell her that no, she was not having auditory hallucinations. It was just me making sort-of-sounds-like-a-goat noises.)

I know he is really happy in his new home, though. We got an email that Hamish and his two new friends were all snuggled up together last night!

Awww! I bet he's happy to have some goat buddies to hang out with. I really want to go visit Hamish and his pals.

They sent us these pics this morning! The goat on the table is named Levi. He was rescued from a slaughter auction.
Image

Hamish made friends with the dogs, too! This one is named Freedom, and there is also a little pug and an elderly border collie.
Image

They have renamed him Milton (which is not as cool as Hamish MacGoat, but I guess it's alright). So if anyone does visit WInslow farm, you can ask for Milton and see him with his new friends!

I love how Hamish (okay, Milton, but I do prefer the name Hamish) just loves everyone! His fellow goats, the doggies. I bet he got a liking for dogs from staying with you guys, raspberries. Now he's just spreading the love around to all the creatures around him! He's no speciesist. What a dear little heart he has!

When he is able to be moved into the main corral, he can meet horses and sheep and chickens and cats and all kinds of other animals. I'm curious to see what he'll think of that!

Here's Hamish's press release, with some new photos: http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Rescued-Goat-Finds-Refuge-At-Winslow-Farm-Animal-Sanctuary.html?soid=1102509927549&aid=uwxIuuXeSpg. Look at how happy he looks! They are sending this out to local media outlets. Hopefully it will raise awareness of the work the farm does, and bring in some donations!

GUESS WHO I SAW TODAY!

Image

He is in with the main herd now. He was way more interested in the popcorn that someone dropped than in us!

Image
"Hey, Rango. Rango. Look, I'm on a stump! Hey. Rango. Look. Up here. Look at me!"

Image

BONUS ANIMALS:

Image
This goose is 37 years old!

Image

I LOVE THIS DONKEY. He pressed his face against me and closed his eyes and just stood there like that while I petted him.

Image

Image
Guess who lives in this house?

Image
A BUNNY!

I could spend all week at this place. There are a ton of hardworking kid volunteers there, and they remembered me and my mom and were telling us, "Did you see Milton? He's so much fun! He loves the horses! Last night he was climbing on the platforms in the goat barn and leaping off of them!" Everyone really loves him there!

I just scrolled through that bunch of pictures going "I want to be a goat when I grow up!" "No, I want to be an alpaca!" "No, a donkey!" "Aaah okay maybe a sheep!"
