Ella and Jan recently immigrated to South Africa, and at the end of last year, they adopted two ponies from the Cape of Good Hope SPCA once they were settled in their new home on a farm.
Having always loved and had horses abroad, Ella and Jan visited the SPCA Farmyard and Horse Care Unit to adopt their two ponies.
For many years, Jan often mused how he would love to have some goats join the family.
Did you know?
Horses and goats make great companions for one another
Since Jan has always wanted goats, Ella unbeknown to him started the process of adopting two kids that were in our care, ”Ariel & Aero”.
Surprise family additions
Upon a successful adoption application, Ella brought a blindfolded Jan to the SPCA for a surprise. It was love at first sight for Jan when he met the two adorable kids!
The 2 little kids have settled in really well and are loving farm life with their new dad, following and helping in the garden.
Already they are great pals with the family horses and dogs.
