Zippy the Goat

Zippy the Pygymy Goat

It is with sadness that we bring you the news that Zippy the pygmy goat passed away peacefully of old age this week.

Zippy was one of the original four pygmy goats, along with George, Bungle and Dora, who joined Test Valley School in the spring of 2007. Both current and former pupils and staff will have fond memories of the antics of Zippy and his friends. Zippy spent a happy life at TVS, harassing pupils and staff for food, attempting to escape and loudly vying for the spot of alpha goat with Oscar and George. Oscar, the pygmy goat who joined us from Marsh Court Estate a few years ago, will be given lots of TLC to cope with his loss.
