Violet’s mom, Vanna, was one of many goats rescued from a “backyard butcher” in Orange County, New York in 2015. Vanna was pregnant when she was brought to safety and gave birth to three baby girls in January 2016. While her sisters were healthy, Violet was dangerously small, weighing only one pound!
Vanna did not have enough milk for all three of her babies and instantly rejected tiny Violet. So baby Violet was bottle fed by her adoptive (human) mama, Kellie Myers, who was so dedicated to Violet that she bottle-fed her every two hours, round the clock.
Once weaned, Violet began living with her adoptive (goat) sisters Lonnie and Loretta. While these two are polite goats, Violet is … um … a bit spoiled and headstrong, and enjoys letting people know who’s boss. Don’t be surprised if, when you visit, our troublemaker is in time out!
