About Sprout

Sprout was euthanized today. He was dumped off at our front gate in July of 2002, along with Alfalfa Goat. Sprout became friends with Cheech Goat, a severely arthritic pygmy goat. Sprout protected Cheech, who couldn’t get around without being picked on by the bigger, stronger goats.

Sprout and I became bonded after I had to take him to UC Davis a couple of times. He became familiar with the way I called his name throughout the drive, and since then he would recognize it when I’d call to him out in the pasture. His head would lift up, and we’d make eye contact.

Here’s your disturbing picture of the day:
