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.

What a fabulous way to end our day! Simone was so enjoyable, full of energy and knowledgeable about her adorable goats, Cotton Candy and Buttercup! We loved our time with them and would love to bring our grandkids next time we are in town. Simone and her daughter were also very knowledgeable about the native plants. I felt very connected to nature and highly recommend this experience. Leigh &Rob

Both of them are lovely ladies!y son and I truly enjoyed our experience with them. Cotton candy and Buttercup are so adorably cute. Bella and Chico the chihuahuas were an added bonus. We throughly enjoyed the scenery and the company. We will definitely like to do it again.

We had a great hike with Simone and Summer and Butter and Candy! (And Belle and her friend whose name escapes me) The goats are super cool (although Butter does like to be in front requires some impromptu trotting) and the exact perfect level of activity. We learned a lot about angora goats as well as the local flora. Simone and Summer were great hostesses. Loved it!

Simone and her daughter were kind and knowledgeable. Both are animal lovers like myself I could see the passion they have in what they do. If you love animals and a simple hike this experiences is a must.

I booked this adventure because I knew it would be a great birthday gift for my animal-lover friend. We had a wonderful time at the goat walk! The host and her daughter were both so friendly and informative! We had great conversation with them. Not only did we get to learn more about the awesome goats, but about the local flora and fauna. The trail hike was in a beautiful location and it was so much fun watching the goats enjoy their snacks along the trail. The goats were so friendly and sweet. We got so many great photos and had many laughs. After the walk, we even got to watch a demo of how yarn is made from the goat fur and how it was knitted. Would definitely recommend this unique adventure!!!
