Adopt an animal - Mortimer

Mortimer is one of our newest additions to the Care Farm, one of 3 rescue goats from the dairy industry. When he arrived he was still having a bottle twice a day but is now fully weaned and turning into a cheeky young man.

Mortimer likes to gently head butt people when he thinks they aren’t looking but fortunately he is only little so it doesn’t hurt (yet!). He thinks he is the boss of his lady herd-mates but we are almost certain that Daisy is the leader as she is always out in front.  Mortimer likes going on walks with the students but is usually the one walking them. He is a firm favourite with staff and students because if you sit in the goat pen he will jump straight onto your lap. This could be for a cuddle but mostly to eat your hair.

Mortimer has daily access to a generous 20x20m outdoor grassed pen and will be enjoying his share of the large third of an acre paddock once electric fence trained. Every evening the goats are tucked up in the pig’s winter house. We are in the process of building a purpose built hard standing yard with timber stable for them.

By adopting Mortimer you will help support his ongoing food, bedding, housing costs and yearly vet visits.

When you adopt an animal from Lakeside Care Farm you will receive a certificate, personalised letter from your chosen animal and a full-colour photo. You will also receive quarterly updates from your hairy friend by post.

In the delivery information please write the name of the person that this adoption is for and any other information.
