Co będziecie robić

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.

Gdzie będziecie

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 Summer provide a unique opportunity to learn more about goats while hiking. Both are warm wonderful people who want to learn about you as much as they want you to learn About their goats. Great afternoon!

What a fun and unique way to spend a few hours, hiking the hills with two gentle goats, Buttercup and Cotton Candy…and two cute chihuahuas to boot. Simone and Summer were great guides, and their care for the goats (and pooches) was evident, which made the experience even better.

Simone and her daughter are a lot of fun. What a great experience with fun people. Definitely a different and fun thing to do for a date night.

Looking for a break from walking your dog? Come on this outing where you can walk two adorable goats (… and yes, they are both on leashes). My husband and I had a blast. Round trip we went roughly 3K steps with a moderate climb, which allowed us some nice views and lovely picture-taking opportunities. At the end we were lucky enough to see the last full moon of 2021 rising as we parted ways with our new-found friends. Definitely recommend.
