Bradley Mountain Senior Goat Nannies are the volunteer team that helps at public events, participates in advanced training, and promotes herd socialization and human bonding. There are a limited amount of spots available to be a Senior Goat Nanny and you may need to wait until there is room to join, but it is well worth it! Depending on what the herd needs, we may be:
- Helping with the delivery of new baby goats
- Snuggling with the babies or nurturing the moms
- Clicker training goats to perform tasks or tricks
- Taking herd members out on longer hikes. Preparing them for goat walks
- Teaching others about common plants that are edible and feeding them to the herd
- Greeting the public at events, and being a farm ambassador
- Attending farm events and teaching guests about the herd
- Herd walking the bucks and wethers at the farm so they stay social and sweet
- Training and driving a goat cart and preparing for a parade march
- Training goats to carry a backpack
