Það sem verður gert

We will meet at Manchester Nature Preserve in Encinitas. The guests will meet Buttercup and Cotton Candy, our angora goats, feed them treats and then take turns holding the leashes as we walk along the nature preserve trails. This is a scenic hike through the California Sage Brush, with wild flowers (seasonal). While we're walking you can learn about the history of the angora goat and goat keeping in general, ask questions or simply enjoy their sweet personalities as we walk (or run) along the trail.
Contrary to goat yoga this activity is suitable for all ages and does not require special athletic skills. We will end the walk with a mohair spinning and knitting demonstration and enjoy a cold sparkling water.

Please note: Goat walking is slightly different from dog walking. Goats like to browse, meaning they regularly stop to nibble on vegetation. This makes the walk fun for them and mimics their natural behavior. Also, just like us humans, there are days when they feel energized and move at a fast pace (usually during cooler weather) and other days when they feel more lazy and want to stop for snacks more often. I do not want or expect my animals to perform like circus animals, instead I adapt to their energy level. For that reason the hiking times and distances do vary.

If you have health concerns consider making your goat hike "private."

I am a life long animal lover. As a holistic health practitioner I have been studying the healing powers of animals, especially prey animals like horses and goats, on humans that suffer from PTSD, autism and depression. Spending time in the presence of these animals is soothing, fun and brings out the playful curious side in people. After seeing the responses of random strangers on the beach (like adults running after us squealing with excitement) every time we take Butters and Candy (our angora goats) for a walk, I thought it would be nice to share this experience with others.

Staðsetning

We will be hiking through California native plants at Manchester Preserve in Encinitas.
Depending on skill level we can either take the valley trail (easy) or hike up to the ridge with views of the local mountains (moderate).
The Beach Walk is available after Labor Day due to overcrowded beaches and lack of parking during the summer. This hike is tide dependent because the beach we are allowed to walk on is only accessible during low tide.

Simone and her daughter were so wonderful and my family and I had such a lovely time with her sweet goats! Simone was so thoughtful and the hike was beautiful. Cannot recommend this experience enough!

Absolutely wonderful experience. Simone and her daughter were so personable. We enjoyed their company as much as we did the goats. A perfect ending to our California vacation and the biggest smiles of our trip.

Amazing experience loved it more than I would have thought Simone was an amazing host would not change anything for the experience she gave me and my wife 100/10 would do it again.

I don' know what I enjoyed most out of our hike, the goats or Simone our host. Simone is probably the sweetest lady I have ever met. Her daughter was just as kind and helpful with the goats and the dogs. The hike itself was absolutely beautiful and provided good exercise. The goats (Cotton and Butters) were the sweetest, most well behaved goats I ever met. This experience was well worth the cost.

Loved this. My kids loved the little dogs that we hiked with just as much as the goats. Very reasonable hike with children 11 and 12. Thanks!

I was so excited when I saw this experience opportunity and Simone did not disappoint! She was punctual and had a smile on her face the whole time. She was very knowledgeable about both the plant life on our hike as well as angora goats. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute and Cotton Candy and Buttercup were joyful hiking partners.
