Thelma is our delightful pygmy goat who arrived at Dove Creek in 2016. She is relaxed most of the time unless one of the dogs chases them for fun and games - but that's about it. Otherwise, you will see her roaming, mostly lying around in the main pen and surrounding pasture - staying pretty close to Tico as he is her protector.
