Bella is petite in size, but mighty sweet. She is feminine, gentle and silly.  She is a climber and can often be seen on top of logs, chairs, wheelbarrows, play structures, and ledges of walls.  She is beloved by all the Rosie’s residents.

Bella, and her brother Bruce, are our first residents to be born at Rosie’s Farm Sanctuary. We didn’t know Lana, their mother, was pregnant. We had rescued Lana, 4 months and 3 weeks prior to their birth. Gestation for a goat pregnancy is 5 months.  We had been told she either couldn’t get pregnant or couldn’t lactate, which is why the dairy was willing to give her up. Lana was very thin when we first got her.  We were aware that she was gaining weight, but thought it was because she was grazing freely and had access to more nutrition. Lo and behold, on August 8 2022, Lana disappeared into the woods. When we went searching for her, we found her tending to her brand new babies.  Lana was not able to nurse Bella and Bruce. We bottle fed them with goat’s milk bought from the store.

Both these babies will only ever know life in a sanctuary.  Such lucky goats.
