With the addition of goat kids, protection from predators became top priority. After careful consideration and research, we were lucky to find Great Pyrenees pups, Cody and Grace. Cody and Grace came from a working goat ranch in north Texas, where they were being trained by their working parents, and bonding with their goats.
Cody and Grace are 1 yr old and doing an amazing job protecting the goats. They are still in training for the chickens, but coming along nicely.
