Patricia, Paddy Cakes’ mother, was rescued off of a slaughter truck by the Merciful Maiden. An angry husband sold off his wife’s pet goats when she wasn’t home. She called in a panic that her pets had been sold for slaughter. Merciful Maiden made a quick call to a person “in the know” regarding local slaughter pickups….and found the truck that was just about to head out of Klamath Falls to go down south.
Merciful Maiden jumped in her truck and got in front of the slaughter truck and had him pull over. She purchased the three pet goats on the spot. Patricia, daughter of Tasha and Chicket ( the other two rescued) then birthed in June…a BIG LITTLE surprise as Paddy Cakes was so tiny that Patricia didn’t even look pregnant. Mom and kid are doing well. They are La Manchas, the breed of goat that has very short ears.
