Long (very long) story short, several weeks ago we ended up with two 9 year old Nubian doe goats, more or less a rescue situation. Cricket had to teach them to respect the dog, so that we could go in and out of the gate without trying to keep them contained, they adore being with people so strongly.
Pony is pretty happy tho. I think he missed his goat more than we thought
