Wat je gaat doen

We will meet at Manchester Nature Preserve in Encinitas. The guests will meet Buttercup and Cotton Candy, our angora goats, feed them treats and then take turns holding the leashes as we walk along the nature preserve trails. This is a scenic hike through the California Sage Brush, with wild flowers (seasonal). While we're walking you can learn about the history of the angora goat and goat keeping in general, ask questions or simply enjoy their sweet personalities as we walk (or run) along the trail. Contrary to goat yoga this activity is suitable for all ages and does not require special athletic skills. We will end the walk with plenty of picture time and enjoy a cold sparkling water. Please note: Goat walking is slightly different from dog walking. Goats like to browse, meaning they regularly stop to nibble on vegetation. This makes the walk fun for them and mimics their natural behavior. Also, just like us humans, there are days when they feel energized and move at a fast pace (usually during cooler weather) and other days when they feel more lazy and want to stop for snacks more often. I do not want or expect my animals to perform like circus animals, instead I adapt to their energy level. For that reason the hiking times and distances do vary. Also, we can accommodate larger groups on request.

Simone

I am a life long animal lover. As a holistic health practitioner I have been studying the healing powers of animals, especially prey animals like horses and goats, on humans that suffer from PTSD, autism and depression. Spending time in the presence of these animals is soothing, fun and brings out the playful curious side in people. After seeing the responses of random strangers on the beach (like adults running after us squealing with excitement) every time we take Butters and Candy (our angora goats) for a walk, I thought it would be nice to share this experience with others.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will be hiking through California native plants at Manchester Preserve in Encinitas. Depending on skill level we can either take the valley trail (easy) or hike up to the ridge overlooking San Elijo Lagoon (moderate). The Beach Walk is available after Labor Day due to overcrowded beaches and lack of parking during the summer. This hike is tide dependent because the beach we are allowed to walk on is only accessible during low tide.

Try to avoid chemical sunscreens and strong perfume/ cologne since goats have sensitive noses and might not want to take treats from you. Traffic in Socal is always intense, so please, plan plenty of time for your drive to the trail head. Please, DO NOT DISTURB HOUSE OWNER of 1475 Trabert Ranch Rd
