Employee of the Month

Finn

(inspired by Hunger Games character)

Finn is a fixed boy (wether) selected this month for his gentle nature. Believe it or not, Finn got his name before his horn grew in! Horns are burned off when goats are 3 days old. If horn cells persist, they can grow back in crazy ways.

Horns serve a purpose in that they dissipate the heat. On the side, goats with horns can get stuck in fences or hurt each other.

Finn is especially appreciated because he guards Sharon. If any goat tries to get pushy or put her in a goat sandwich (between two goats), Finn comes to her rescue and protects her. Finn is only 5 years old so we hope our Alpine guard goat is with us a long time.
