Gomer

Oh the things I can say about Gomer aka Gomie Gomie Gome Gome, Gomie my homie, Gomes, NO NO BAD GOMER.

What can I say about this guy? Gomer was running around Ashland for about 2 weeks until he showed up on someone's porch on Pyle Road (hence the name Gomer).

Gomer had a harness so it looked like he belonged to someone. He was underweight and dehydrated and losing chunks of hair.  After removing his harness, I found large abscesses on his neck, he must have been attacked by a dog. We got those all cleaned out and the vet started him on antibiotics.  He also had a sever vitamin and mineral deficiency and that was why he was losing all of his hair.  He was also loaded with every parasite a goat can have.  We got him on vitamins and mineral supplements and got him a copper bolus (goats need copper in their diets). 

When he came he was aggressive and would not leave the females alone. He didn't want anything to do with people and would not come near me.

Well, we found out that Gomer would sell his soul for a Lorna Doone. Once he found out that I was the giver of the snacks, we are now best friends. Gomer has since been neutered and has calmed down significantly and is a happy member of the barn yard crew.   Gomer and Henry are tied for the most days on the naughty list.  Gomer is a clown and he is constantly stirring the pot and getting into mischief... Just one of the reasons I love him so much.   Gomer loves patsy the pig and takes great care of Baa.  

 

There is something about Gomer that I can't describe.  There is a calmness in his soul, a gentleness in his eyes.  When I am having a stressful day, I can count on Gomer to run up to me in the pasture, press his head against my forehead and just be...

I am not sure who rescued who.  I may have rescued him once, but he rescues me constantly.

Animal Sponsorships are an affordable way to help us cover the costs for each rescued animal’s feed, shelter, and care.

They make great gifts. Give the gift of compassion, one that lasts all year and allows a farm animal in need to live his or her life in peace and comfort.

You or your chosen recipient will receive a certificate with your (or your gift recipient’s) name on it, a beautiful photo, and the story of your sponsored animal.  And, for all those that commit to a yearly sponsorship, you will receive an invite to a summer BBQ with other "adoptive patents" to spend the afternoon at the sanctuary with your sponsored animal and their friends. 

 

Animal sponsorships are an affordable way to support the well-being of our animals every month by helping us cover the costs of our animals' food, shelter, and daily care.
