Mags Z. sent us this bootaful story via  The Telegraph of Maisie the Goat at Maria’s Animal Shelter in Probus, Cornwall. Maisie suffers from arthritis and has to wear wellington boots to help her condition. Recent downpours have left 12-year-old Maisie constantly squelching around in puddles and mud. So her keepers have provided pink wellies to protect her from foot rot – the animal equivalent of trench foot.

  1. Mary (the first) says:

    She looks very festive!

  2. A lot of little girls I know would be jealous of those boots.

  3. YAY-zie, Maisie!!!

    Signed,
    Can I haz a goat, please???

  4. actually, that should have been “envious”

  5. Oh those do NOT go with that coat . . .

  6. Fird, I am looking into getting you a goat for Christmas. If I can’t pull it off I will get one for your birthday.

  7. I just love it when hoomans go the extra mile for their anipals.

  8. No, no, one of the special qualities of shocking pink is that it goes with EVERYTHING.

  9. *does a Victory Dance* ! :)

  10. Martha in Washington says:

    I’m jealous of those boots! I would love to be that close to Maisie (and to be in Cornwall)! :)

  11. Martha in Washington says:

    I do have one little question…how does Maisie keep those stunning boots on her feet?

  12. haha, me too, now that you mention it

  13. we’re going to have a wellies tag pretty soon. Remember that piglet who didn’t like to get her feet muddy?

  14. skippy, I can imagine you getting one for Fird. But even tho I have a great imagination, I just….can’t….picture you actully giving it to Fird. Or anyone else.

  15. Needs a bow or two on her horns.

  16. Blue Footed Booby says:

    That was the cutest thing, except maybe that farmer who got a little life preserver for the runt of a litter so piggy could float in a tub of warm water. I loved how piggy was like “oh god help I’m dyi-wait, this is kinda nice.” :3

  17. I am going to buy two goats, give one to Fird and keep one.

  18. They must be the kind of boots you put on over your shoes. Those always stay on better…

  19. I was wondering the exact same thing.

  20. Don’t try on a centipede? I’ve been looking for a 2013 project. Challenge accepted. :)

  21. *continues Victory Dance*

  22. Funny how the non-humorous-animal-activist-side of my brain grimaces, but in an instant the Qte-side of my brain overflows it with “squeeeeeeee!” I mean, you can SEE she’s smiling! And her perky lil tail is just about to wagwagwag!

    Hope you tiny hoofies get better soon, love!
