Meet Our Goats
Meet Daisy!! Maui Goat Yoga’s sweetie pie. Daisy is very petite and very gentle. She loves to be petted and to have her neck and bottom of ears scratched. Her eyes will make you melt when she looks at you. Daisy’s soft loving personality makes her perfect for Maui Goat Yoga.
Duder! Love love love my most gentle Duder! Can not get a more sweet male goat as Duder. Duder will wait his turn patiently and always make sure the ladies (Sweet Pea, Daisy, and Cookie go first) Duder is named after my brother David who has amazing blue eyes like Duder (and of course the most amazing gentleman to the ladies). My parents used to yell across the house “hey Duder” to get my brothers attention instead of just the usual “hey Dude”. Duder is a gentleman and will never jump on you or chew your things. He just wants love and treats. Duder’s twin brother is Jon Snow.
Alfredo “Alfi” for short is coming to Maui Goat Yoga any day now. He is 4 weeks old and super handsome. We are waiting to spend some time with Alfredo and get to know his personality before we complete his bio. The time we have spent with him he is mello and sweet and perfect for our Maui Goat Yoga family.
Tsunami is another new addition to the Maui Goat Yoga family. He came to live with us when Bella Luna did. They came from the same home to our home.
Tsunami name was “No Namey” for a while according to breeder. They were not sure what to name him. We ended up keeping his name because it is so the opposite of his personality. Now we call him Susu because he is oh so so SuSu sweet. Tsunami is as sweet as as they come. He loves to be picked up and snuggled and kissed. He will just stay content in your arms for as long as you want to hold him.
