It’s time for our second installment of meet the girls and our chosen girl is Rebekah. She is one of our senior does and her mom was Twilight (one of our first 3 girls). Rebekah is a chamoisee pattern with white and has some of the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen on a goat.
She is our current herd queen and likes to rule over everyone except her best bud, Tinkerbell. While she may not have quite as many antics as Tinkerbell, Rebekah has always been a character here at Wyldewood. If she thinks you have food or treats, she will be all in your space. If she thinks you might be considering catching her for something, then you will never get near her. In her younger days, we called her the Matrix goat. She was known to run along the wall in the barn and jump over the wall of the stalls to get away from you. Luckily, she has settled down quite a bit in her older years.
Rebekah’s other talent is teaching all of our dogs that they don’t want to go in the goat when we are working on things. Rebekah and her mother have made sure all of our dogs give the goats a very wide berth. She is usually the first to put any livestock guardian puppies in their place as well. She gets along great with our senior Great Pyrenees, Sam. He loves to be near the girls, but doesn’t get in their space so Rebekah tolerates him more than any other dog that has ever lived at Wyldewood.
We are hoping for some beautiful babies from Rebekah this spring and I am hoping for at least one girl that I can keep. I would love to have another girl with her beautiful blue eyes so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.
