goat helps blind horse

Who would think that a goat would take up with a blind horse and spend years doing nothing but babysitting this animal, just because he needed help?

The horse, Charlie (yes, Charlie-Horse), is 40 years old and goes blind. She decides it’s time to put him down, but what happens? Their goat, Jack, somehow befriends the horse and starts leading it around.

This goes on for 16 years.

Finally, Charlie the horse dies. Shortly thereafter, the goat starts to slow down and it’s clear his time is almost over as well.

Habitat for Horses is a 501.c.3 nonprofit equine protection organization supported solely by donations. We have around 200 donkeys and horses under our care, plus one ornery, old mule. Most of them are here because law enforcement removed them from their previous owner. Our ability to rehabilitate and rehome them comes from the financial support of people like you.
