Sponsoring an animal at The Gentle Barn enables us to continue saving and caring for some of the most vulnerable and neglected animals.Click Here To Learn More About Animal Sponsorship
Brave Heart somehow escaped slaughter and was brought to us to raise. Tiny and terrified it took a while to show him that he was safe and could trust us. Once he understood he was not an object, but an important part of our family, he blossomed and came to life. Brave Heart can be abrasive at times with the other goats, but with guests he is all charm. He loves putting his head on our shoulders and snuggling in our hair, and he'll even try to fit his entire body in our laps to nap. Because Brave Heart is a very large goat, he developed a weaker hind end. To keep him mobile, strong, and comfortable he gets acupuncture each week. He experienced the worst of humanity, and for the rest of his life he'll get the best at our California location!
