ROTTIE’S 1ST SESSION
After one day of acclimation, I was ready to introduce the goats to training. This video is the 1st session, with the 1st goat, and you will see his very first click!
This is a 3-month old male LaMancha goat who was rescued from a dairy, his name is Rottie. As you will see, he learns incredibly fast, despite many errors on my part, I was not quite ready for him to be such a fast learner. Students who take classes from The Ranch needn’t worry, there will still be plenty of training that needs to be done (and not every goat is learning quite so fast)! But I had to share our very first formal session.
