When the adorable goat Butterscotch first arrived in Animal Place, she took everyone by surprise when they found out the unimaginable: the goat was 3 months into her pregnancy! Of course, it’s an understatement to say that the farm animal reservoir located in Grass Valley, California will be glad to have both the goat and his kid at home together.
If they had been in other circumstances, such as back in a farm, Butterscotch and her baby Bella would’ve been separated soon after the baby was born, since Butterscotch used to be a dairy goat back in her farm days. Dairy goats spend almost their entire lives impregnated, since they need to produce milk for the farmers, and the babies are taken elsewhere to be raised apart from their mothers.
Thanks to Animal Place and all of their amazing staff, these two goats had the privilege of spending their whole lives together in family. The video below will show you the amazing bond that Butterscotch was able to develop with her baby, and it will show you that maybe the farm industry has a lot of things that have to change.
