Patch the goat was abandoned by his owners and was found wandering near Ross on Wye Rowing Club. He was booked into the abattoir and was saved the day before and arrived at Goatsgalore. He is very tame, placid and gentle but he does like to escape, it's such a shame that his owners weren't responsible and tried to find him a home rather than abandon him.
Little Sark ran 20 times won 3 races on the flat but he damaged his tendons and retired from racing. He has needed a great deal of tlc and has spent many weeks confined to a stable, allowing his legs to repair. He can only be turned out into a small paddock as he does occasionally see the" Red Mist" and suffers from flashbacks, when he thinks he is back on the race course. He is turned out with an old mare who acts as a calming companion.
Jack Button the black and white shetland pony in the photograph was a surprise addition at the sanctuary. His mother was rescued and six months after arriving gave birth to Jack.
