Rocco is not a horse! Sometimes goats need rescuing too! Rocco came with Gus, an Arabian gelding.

Rocco has epilepsy and is on medication.  He often has a cluster of seizures over a day or so, then he will be fine for several weeks.  Rocco is one of the mascot of Villa Chardonnay!  If you visit the barn, he will likely be the first one to say hello—he is headstrong like many goats with big horns to boss others around. In fact, he was so ornery that we had to get him a friend to cheer him up. That is why we adopted Wilbur. They are now the best of friends and play together all the time! Rocco is not nearly as ornery as he used to be before his friend Wilbur came along...
