Arnold is a baby goat from a farm in Canada. He was born with contracted tendons, so his legs are crooked. Because of that, this baby goat was left unwanted.
Black Goat Farm and Sanctuary in Ontario cofounder, Megan Mostacci, said that Arnold was about to be put down in a few days. So, they took the baby goat.
When Arnold arrived at the sanctuary, he underwent physical therapy for his tendons. Mostacci said that they would do stretches twice a day. They also put splints on Arnold’s legs. This baby goat has so much healing to do.
Good thing, Arnold found love and affection from the sanctuary’s staff. Not only that but he also found a friend in a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever named Drake. The two of them struck up an unexpected friendship.
Looks like we will plan for the open house on a Sunday. We are going to be sure we think we can have everything ready for May 27 before we make it official.We plan on having a big raffle with lots of prizes – if anyone has anything they would be willing to donate please let us know!Drake and Arnold have been very little help with planning everything. They are lucky they are so cute .

Mostacci describes Drake as a lazy dog who loves sleeping on the couch. Because Arnold’s legs are crooked and his splints have caused him to slow down a little, he’s happy to join Drake on his not-so-active activity. Arnold seemed to have fallen in love with Drake.
The two of them would spend all day snuggling side-by-side. They would even go as far as doing an all-out spooning. Mostacci said that she’s never seen anyone spend as much time cuddling than these two slobs. The snuggly pair seem to enjoy cuddling so much that others were also tempted to join them.
However, it didn’t take long for Arnold to grow bigger. The condition of his legs improved a lot too. Because of that, Arnold got more active. He would play and climb all over Drake. He also started enjoying playing outdoors.
Then one day, Arnold hurt his tendons, causing him to need splint again. Arnold seemed to know exactly what to do. He went back to the house and hopped right into the couch to snuggle with Drake. It looks like Drake will have some nursing to do again.
