Goat Fund Us: Update #26

My apologies, it’s been a really long time since you heard from us. I actually started to write this update around the May long weekend, and I almost had it finished, but then “life just happened” and I got totally sidetracked by the normal “craziness” on the farm and in particular by the very intensive care for our little special goat Rosemary.

Goat Fund Us: Update #25 & Goodbye Alexis

Time for an update from the animals and the farm. These past two weeks have just been especially busy, unexpected and full. But first I like to welcome many new donors and followers to our fundraising campaign and I’m sending out a big THANK YOU to all of you for supporting us through all this time. It’s been now well over 13 months that the farm has been closed and just more than a year since we’ve started this fundraiser. It feels like quite the journey we all went on together.

Goat Fund Us: Update #24

Just in time for Easter I would like to give you another update from the animals and the farm. In a “normal” year the Easter long weekend tends to be one of the busiest weekends of our farm season. We had lots of inquiries if the farm would be opening for visitors now, but unfortunately this year the farm is not open to the public yet. With the ongoing risk of COVID-19 surrounding us and the current rise in case numbers, our highest priority is to continue to do our part in order to keep everyone healthy and safe – humans and animals – and through that to ensure our ability to continuously care for our animals.

Spring is finally here or at least it’s just around the corner, and many of us take advantage of the sunny weather to spend some time outdoors, breathe in the mild air and soak up the sunshine. Just this past week marked the day when the farm was closed for an entire year. Even during this pandemic, time still flies, and while I know that the farm was closed and without visitors for a full year (after a shockingly short season of 6 days!) it still feels unreal.

Now this Valentine’s and Family Day long weekend is pretty much drawing to a close and I just like to wish you and all your loved ones plenty of strength, happiness and good health, and I hope very much that all of us will be able to celebrate family, friendship and love safely together again once the circumstances (as well as this rather unusual weather) improve. Family and friendship are very important values, I think they are literally our rocks! And for us at the farm that totally includes our animals, we all together make up our big farm family.

Goat Fund Us: Update #20 & Looking back onto 2020

I hope you’ve all been able to spend a joyful and relaxing Holiday season and had a good start into 2021 – despite the many unusual circumstances we all had to incorporate this year. 2020 has finally come to an end I guess we are all pretty happy to see it go as this year has presented many of us with a lot of challenges and unfamiliar situations.

Goat Fund Us: Update #19

This past week we finally had “operation equine dentist” and as promised in the last update here is how it all went down. The dental treatment for our horse and donkeys was quite a “hands on task” which in addition to our vet sometimes required four extra helpers (all safely masked up pretty much like at the “real” dentist) to keep our ladies calm, still and upright.

Goat Fund Us: Update #18

I’ve started to write this update over a week ago to share with you some news about our new website and of course about the animals. But then time just seemed to accelerate with everything happening all at once. We had a lot of support pouring in again – it was simply astonishing to witness. This awesome response from the community kept us very busy. But let me just say the most important thing first: THANK YOU. YOU DID IT!

Goat Fund Us: Update #17

Time for some news from the animals: Almost all of them are now in Metchosin on the winter farm where they continue to receive all the care they need. They have all settled in nicely, but winter isn’t everyone’s favourite season. Depending on the weather – which has already been rather wet and windy this fall – the goats especially spend lots of time inside their cozy barns always cuddled up closely to their buddies.
