We’ve asked some of Animal Farm’s biggest characters to share their stories! This interview with one of our most popular and beautiful girls is the first in a regular series. Enjoy!
What is your name?
Domino, because I have spots on my side like a domino piece.
What type of animal are you?
Ahh! Look at me! I am a goat!
What type of goat are you?
I’m proud to be a Kiwi. My twin brother Tippy and I were found in the bush up Ben Nevis and were rescued after our mum disappeared. We were looked after by some lovely people and when we were three weeks old, we came to live at Animal Farm.
What age are you?
I am four years old. I don’t know my exact birthday but I know Tippy and I were born in early April 2013.
Who is in your family?
There’s Tippy, who I am sure you will meet another time. I have just become a mother to two gorgeous little girls called Sugar and Spice. People love to come and see them because they are as pretty as their mum.
What is your favourite food?
Let’s clear up a common mistake some humans make—goats do NOT eat everything. Okay, little kids will try eating hair, clothes, plastic buckets, etc. but that is just because they are babies and don’t know any better! We adult goats have better taste and my favourite food is trees, trees, trees—I will do almost anything to get to a tasty tree.
What is your pet hate?
Not being allowed out to eat trees when I want. Don’t know what the problem is—they keep growing don’t they? People can be SO mean.
What is your biggest crime?
Apparently, it is eating trees—something about destroying them, blah, blah!
What are you most likely to say?
Tippy, get that gate open. There are trees out there with my name on them!
What is your favourite song?
I want to break free!
If you could have the powers of any other animal —what would they be and why?
I would want the powers of a kangaroo, so I could jump these damn fences and enjoy some more trees – yum.
If you were a person, who would you be and why?
I would be Elle McPherson because, like her, I am beautiful, clever and kind-hearted.
