Goats experience

stroke | feed | observe

Holidays in the countryside are something very special - especially for city children, who do not get to know different animal breeds every day and usually only read about them in books. The well-deserved holidays are the ideal time to spend exciting and valuable experiences with different animal breeds and to spend valuable time with the animals.

"Susi, Strolchi and Sissi - the bleating threesome"

As part of our weekly programme, your children can feed, stroke and observe the goats together with our child carers. As the correct handling of goats needs to be learned, and goats in particular have their moods and cannot be predicted, children are only allowed into the goat enclosure when accompanied by at least one carer.

Petulant offspring

Baaa. In December our Susi became a mother. The mother and her little fawn are doing well. The little goat has also found new friends, she already has Maestro, Sissi, Miguel and many others as animal companions.  By the way, the little fawn can't keep still either and so she jumps around cheekily and full of energy in the stable and on the pasture.


Things to know about goats

  • The female goat is called a goat and the male goat is called a buck, their young together are usually called fawns.
  • Goats should never be kept alone, they are very social animals and can develop diseases if they have to live alone.
  • Their coats can be very different - shaggy or soft.
  • Goats are very clean animals and picky about their food. They prefer to eat leaves and foliage and nibble on wood.
  • Goats can form friendships with other animals - as in our case, with our llamas and alpacas.
  • Goats love to move: they climb and jump on raised objects and prefer to rest on raised places.
  • Goats quickly become tame and seek contact with humans, even if they are initially skittish and shy.
  • They can reach an age of 15 years.
