TESTIMONIALS

What a JOYful experience it was to have Nicole and her goats here at my facility!! Although we have had other animal visits here, this was our first experience with pygmy goats. The residents LOVED watching Samuel's antics and having the privilege of holding him as well. We could not have had a more delightful few hours. 

 

Nicole is very knowledgeable about her animals and it is very apparent that she takes great care of them. She came equipped with cleaning supplies, coloring pages and storybooks. Money spent on a visit like this is well worth the cost. Seeing the smiles on the faces of my residents was priceless! It is certainly an afternoon we will all remember! Thanks, Nicole!

ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR

Thank you for your visit with our residents! Your pygmy goats were adorable and the everybody loved them! Our residents have been talking about it for days and are enjoying the little booklets we purchased for them to read to their grandchildren when they come visit! We didn't know that there was so much to learn about the pygmy goats, and most just knew about large goats! This visit was deeply enjoyed and brought happiness and Joy to all who participated. We will gladly have you come again and visit!

ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR

“My daughter and I really enjoyed our sessions with Nicole and her goats! It was a nice break from thinking about life stressors and just be, enjoying the goats and the laughter they brought. We are blessed to have had the opportunity to do this together.”

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

Everyone loved the goats! It was such a great addition to our mother’s day program. Everyone enjoyed learning about the goats and interacting with the pygmy goats. It was interesting to learn about what pygmy goats eat, comeback in terms of popularity in Michigan, and care/routines. The residents are still talking about the goats! Definitely book Nicole and her goats! Nicole does a great job interacting with the crowd and answering questions and the goats are entertaining and adorable!

ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR

Our staff and family loved interacting with the goats and the feedback has all been positive. Many of our staff/family mentioned they learned more about goats from talking to Nicole while visiting the goats and they loved the personal touch. We found the experience engaging; everyone who attended was excited for the goats and loved having an interactive experience.

EVENT PLANNER

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

 The goats were very calming for my sensory needs child. 

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

I met Samuel and got to bottle feed him. I visited with Samson for a bit and he has grown so much in 6 months!

Thank you Nicole for hosting this visit!

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

We have never had goats here before; we have had other animals but not goats.  It was a beautiful day, and we sat outside with the residents. Nicole was so great, she explained so much about the goats. The residents were quite interactive and asking questions. I think holding the baby goat was a great experience for them.  Also, they had the chance to feed the older goat and they enjoyed that as well. I would highly recommend, we loved it and are looking forward to another visit.

ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR

Before meeting Nicole, I had never interacted with a pygmy goat before but, I loved it. The crowd loved the animals! I actually learned a lot and look forward to working with Nicole in the future.
