When Leslie Ackerman was asked to take an orphaned 5 weeks old Scottish Highland steer calf she didn’t hesitate tho she knew he would be very sad without a Mom, especially at that age. For three days Buckley, as he was named, cried and cried and barely ate. She tried putting him with the big goats she had, who had nothing to do with him. At the suggestion of her daughter, she found a mini Nubian goat on Craig’s list offered as a lawn care or BBQ goat. Enter Ralphy, who was not too sure of Buckley. Buckley, however, was overjoyed. It did take a day or so of warming up to him, but Ralphy decided he was ok. The story goes from there.
The two are inseparable and get into all sorts of mischief. Two and a half yrs later they are still BFFs and will live out a wonderful life on the ranch being loved and spoiled by Leslie and all who meet them.
Followed by Fans on Instagram and Facebook, the two bring a smile to all who see them. Friends really do come in all shape and sizes!
