A Compassion in World Farming volunteer has been caught up in Royal Wedding fever, after one of their volunteers named two new born pygmy goats Kate and William! Stephen Mason, who is studying at Merrist Wood College in Guildford, Surrey, decided that the inseparable pair of goats should be named of the nations favourite couple in honour of the Royal Wedding, and I can’t say I blame him!
Stephen Mason, a volunteer at Compassion in World Farming animal charity, decided to name the pygmy goats Will and Kate as the two animals have become inseparable since they met, a bit like our future king and queen!
Stephen said –
With wedding fever in full swing, and the two pygmy kids never wanting to be apart, it was hard to think of more suitable names!
Kate is the darker of the two lovebirds/goats, and loves to climb, whilst William is the inquisitive one. The two pygmy goats are currently the size of a Yorkshire terrier dog and won’t grow any bigger than 58cm in height. The sociable pair of goats are currently roaming free at the Merrist Wood farm, including pigs, sheep, cows and chickens, though it is not sure if this is technically classed as their honeymoon!
