The Girls: Beata, Clarice & Kristen

These beautiful ladies were rescued from a small goat dairy farm in western Minnesota. The owner of the farm was looking to downsize her operation and was happy to find a place where her goats could live out their lives in peace. All three goats are Alpine Dairy Goats and range in age from seven to eleven years.

Despite living on a small family farm, these girls came to us in poor health.  Beata and Kristen both had issues with their udders.  One had recently had her utter punctured by a stick, and without proper care, it became severely infected. The other had an old injury to her udder that was not treated, and as a result she constantly leaked milk. Because of these health issues, all three goats spent several days at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Hospital and Beata and Kristen both had full mastectomies.

All three goats are now fully healed and are loving farm sanctuary life!  Clarice, the shyest and sweetest of the girls, loves to hang out with her human friends for scratches and attention. Clarice is the calm, confident leader of the group who loves a good sun bath. Finally, Kristen is the most playful and feistiest of the three – she loves challenging her bovine friends Gertie and Moolan to friendly duels.
