Saying Goodbye Is So Hard

We are sad to report that Stephen Colbert passed away last week. He will be missed very much by us all. Stephen Colbert came to SASHA Farm in the Fall of 2007. A tiny pygmy goat kid, only a day or two old, he’d been taken from his mother and was being auctioned off by the pound for meat at the local livestock exchange.  Through the help of a friend Stephen came to SASHA Farm where he would live out his life free from harm and in the company of other goats. Through the years Stephen became an iconic figure here at the sanctuary. Loved by the staff and many volunteers, Stephen became one of the most photographed goats ever at SASHA Farm. We have fond memories of calling out his name and having him bleat back at you. We miss Stephen but we know he moved on to other sunny pastures. Thank you for your support and sponsorships of Stephen over the years.
