Red, the Pet of the Day
Name: Red
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Nubian Goat
Home: Idaho, USA
   Red, where to begin? His papered name is Eric the Red, but we just call him RedGoat. He was about two months old when one of the horses broke his back leg. A midnight run to UC Davis yielded a full back leg cast. Since he was still young and growing his caste had to be changed often. Red became a frequent and favorite visitor to UCD. Ultimately we ended up with a very tame, very expensive goat with a very crooked back leg.

    Red's sole purpose in life is to make us laugh and give us affection. He is dedicated to his mission and we love every day we have with him. Red's herd mates are all angora goats that we shear and sell the fiber. We have to laugh that the most expensive goat we own doesn't create any income for the farm. But we love him all the same.
