Chewie was the result of a 4H project that went badly, as she and two other female Nigerian Dwarf goats —Yoda and Pumpkin—were being raised by three young girls who got tired of taking care of them in 2015.

MFS agreed to take in the three goats, who were about 10-12 years old at the time, because we had room and felt bad that these older girls were no longer wanted by the people who had been caring for them. Fortunately they settled in nicely at MFS and are among our friendliest goats.

Chewie is also one of three goats named for “Star Wars” characters, along with Yoda and Abkar. She even shares the same silky brown hair and calm personality of her namesake!

We lost sweet Chewie in the spring of 2022.
