New Goat Girls Arrive on the Family Farm!

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be at the Farm when the new girls arrive from quarantine!  I have been anxiously awaiting their arrival since they got to the Zoo on January 31.  All Animals go through a 30-day quarantine before being brought to exhibit.  

The three new ladies are San Clemente Island Goats, a new rare breed for the Family Farm.   Two of the three are pregnant, so we can look forward to babies approximately the end of April!   The girls, Rosa, Rita and Ramona will not be in the mix of the Barnyard for petting just yet,  they are going to be in the barn until they get acclimated to their new home and new Farm Family.

New girls meeting Nataani!

See my video footage of all the fun :)
(well at least what I could see from where I was :)
