The future of Journey and PigNewton

  • i hope Petunia dose not accidently lay on Journey just saying

  • I agree that Petunia isn't a real good issue...yes, she could trip over her and hurt her, and being deaf, wouldn't hear her...and she does need someone to play with, and Petunia doesn't play like that...No, you can't let her just be loose, car and truck issues, she's not going to be able to be around all the other littles...hmm it's a real about other places who rescue handicapped/disabeled babies, what do they do to provide a safe PLACE for someone like Journey?

  • So I watched a video with Jami staying all night in the nursery on journeys first night. It gave me a idea for possibly a short term or long term plan for her as an opinion/option... maybe journey can run the nursery with a constant flow of newborns. She seems to have a connection so far with newborns and feels safe. I know jami has been hatching eggs with Goldie alot recently, I just dont know if you guys can afford or are capable of having newborns by her side constantly.

  • I need HELP!! Lester or anyone in the Morrow family, I only have a small dog and the fleas are terrible, what do y’all do to keep fleas off your animals??

  • Lester some young grazing animals need the guidance of the others to learn what they should eat and how to eat it. I saw someone comment about a miniature goat being a good companion and I agree, Journey needs someone who can teach her how to be a goat.

  • A mini donkey or pony might be an idea. You wouldn't have to worry about parasites from another goat, but a donkey might provide protection for her.

  • I think it would be good if you could get a female Pygmy goat to be a companion for Journey. Many others have suggested this. Just a thought!

    Laura AmundsonLaura Amundson4 days ago
  • It's always good to plan ahead for your family, and I hope you include some "family planning " that includes having pig Newton neutered before introducing him into the pig herd! Or do you want to make him a breeding board hog?

  • I don't think it would be good to put them together in a way and another way it would so they both can together

  • Aww I didn't know Petunia was blind and deaf. Bless her little heart. I think she's a pretty girl! 💘 Journey is a lot more curious and active than Petunia though. I know she has special needs but I think it would bore her so much if it was just her and Petunia for the most part. It would probably stress Petunia out if Journey was with her all the time too. I know you are much more knowledgeable about farm animals than me and I could be wrong but as a mom my intuition tells me that they are so different that it doesn't sit well I'm afraid. Journey loves interaction.

    Debbie LaneDebbie Lane5 days ago
  • I dont think that would give her the best life she could have. I think she needs more interaction with animals or a companion for herself. Petunia isn't active at all and offers no social life for journey. Hopefully all of us who watch can think of a solution, I have faith we can.

    voncile Johnsonvoncile Johnson6 days ago
  • Lester I thought you were going to stop Journey’s horns from growing? NO! please rethink that! don’t put her with Trudy... for one Trudy will be boring she doesn’t move plus she is too big and she will hurt Journey if she lays on her etc. Journey would be better off with the Chickens at least they move around and wouldn’t hurt her. Sorry to say Lester but you and LE are wrong about this💜 Diane from California

    Diane Spiva HerlihyDiane Spiva Herlihy6 days ago
  • As much a Journey needs to live her best life, pig Newton need to live his also, and that means wallowing and being with the other littles and having more space to roam

    Gary StrankmanGary Strankman6 days ago
  • I like the idea for Journey's new home. Also, I think it's good that LE has his own podcast (can we still call it that? ). He has a different audience and a different viewpoint, so the sanctuary gets more exposure. I like to check in on it once in a while, too, just to see what he's doing around the farm.

  • Sorry, I think she might get trampled by Petunia. If possible, pair her with another goat. She needs stimulation-run around and play like goats do.

  • Lester, perhaps Journey needs to be shown how to 'goat'. Are there any small kids around she can hang out with to learn? Maybe open a daddy day care lol!

  • Just my opinion, if you put her with Petunia, it would be like a disabled kid being put with an old deaf and blind adult. To me that is not a quality life for her, that is more QUANTITY than QUALITY. I think she would get more enjoyment out of kids of any species of her age or younger. My opinion is rooted in my own life, I have an adult disabled daughter with mental and physical disabilities and she really enjoys company, I think she likes kids more because they are not really scared of her, but we know we could never place her in a long term facility with older people, it would literally kill her because lack of social interaction. Yes we know there are facilities for her age out there but they are far and few between. I say this from a caregiver prospective and healthcare professional (both me, my husband and her twin brother are nurses) so we see and know the reality of those places. This is just my 2 cents worth. I know Journey is an animal and not human, I am just very compassionate person and try to think or feel what they might be thinking. I love what you do and enjoy your videos even though some make me cry, lol ❤❤❤

    Erin SErin S6 days ago
  • My heart breaks for that little goat, she needs physical and mental stimulation and now her time will be spent with a lethargic pig who hates anything around her but food. I think she will get hurt by the pig unintentionally stepping on her or biting her over food. Isn’t there another solution to any of this? I hope I hear that you have changed your mind and come to a better solution for her sake.

  • I thought you said Journey couldn't be with the other animals because of immune system.

    Debbie EdwardsDebbie Edwards6 days ago
  • I’m reading all the comments about Petunia laying on Journey. Journey is not blind and I feel is quick enough to move away. Also pigs usually spend time prepping their beds. Petunia could be the Journey. Prayers and Love to Team JP. Can’t wait to see the J&P Palace.

  • Question is, I know Petunia wouldn't mean to, but what if they become snuggle buddies and Petunia plops down on Journey? I am sure you have already thought of this, I just had to ask.

    Teresa DotyTeresa Doty7 days ago
  • Dont worry goat daddy. I've raised a lot of goats. Some of them just aren't ready for solid food until later. That stuff everyone tells you is more of a guide lines. Im sure your human kids didn't do everything at the same time. Neither do they goat kids. Goats do instinctively like to reach up to eat. If you can rig something you could put alfalfa in that she cant get caught in...

    Glam GoatGlam Goat7 days ago
  • She might just be delayed in her feeding. Could you get her supplements? Maybe different fruits like a smoothie or something? They are so sweet. It will all work out guys. God always brings us what we need and He will provide a companion for Journey.

    Susan HulettSusan Hulett7 days ago
  • Lester, why not place Journey with a baby goat, and hopefully she can think like a goat? I like the porch idea, but of course you would need a baby gate so she does not fall down the steps. I think Petunia may be too startled and too aggressive to her. I know you’ll try it to see if it works out and be right there incase there’s an incident. You said you want to place Pig Newton with Pig Trudy. Will Pig Newton & Peggy Pig remember each other i wonder? It will be interesting to see!

  • I have done some research for you and goats if given vitamin D3 and zinc (same as humans) enhances their immune system. This might be part of an answer for Journey. Your can look it up also.

  • You can get large puppy pens that can be placed anywhere so in good weather days you could put it in the middle of the littles area, she could happily watch everyone then you will soon see who wants to be near and interact with her, let nature guide you 💓

  • Petunia loves Her beauty rest! 😆 Do you think making one of the new soon to be born baby goats Journey’s companion, be hard on Her? Pebbles and the others would indeed be too rough. If the baby grew up with Journey, would it be gentle with Her? I know you will make the best decision for Journey, She is well loved and taken care of. ❤️

    Billie HBillie H7 days ago
  • Aren’t there lots of baby goats to be due soon? When they’re born she will probably be strong enough to join with them. I really do thing it would be better to find her a third buddy for when Pig Newton and her separate.

    Nicky SNicky S7 days ago
  • Lester instead of making the hole in the fence. why not add a fenced in area beside the backyard , giving the pig and Journey room to roam safely . so the area where the pig lives make the fence attach to the main fence but further down to the grass area. so if your having a lot of people over she would not be in the way. also if your walking around in bear feet then you wont have a higher chance of stepping into goat droppings.

  • Was pig Newton eating pain off the stairs?

    Rachel LaPlanteRachel LaPlante7 days ago
  • Lester, I think Journey needs a smaller companion animal. Small area outside for Journey and pig Newton needs to be with his own kind. The sooner the better. It is going to be hard to separate them, but I’m sure Journey will adjust. She is just so sweet. I wish I had a suggestion but just worry about her. A handicap little goat is so sad, but you guys have done a marvelous job helping her live her best life. ❤️❤️ I’m sure whatever you decide to do will work fine.

    Rachel LaPlanteRachel LaPlante7 days ago
  • What a pair!! So cute. 💗🐐🐗💗 It will be quite an adjustment for Journey. I would be worried about sweet Petunia accidentally laying on Journey, and I wonder if there would be enough stimulation between the two of them to keep poor little Journey happy? Good luck with your decision and can't wait to see how it all works out.

  • I dont think Journey would live her best life with Petunia. She needs a companion, yes. However, she needs a goat or a fluffy buddy for socialization. Sorry Petunia isnt it.

    Joey BrennanJoey Brennan7 days ago
  • A different direction but have you thought about de-budding her? It might affect her ability balance when she is trying to regain balance or what if she gets stuck in fence like Shirley used too. Really love all y'all's channels. Keep up your good work.

  • It looks like Newton keeps eating paint chips. I hope I'm wrong but I've seen him picking at the bricks and now the stairs. It's toxic so please be careful. Hopefully Petunia will tolerate Journey. 😬 Hopefully it works out! Oh, and I was wondering if maybe Journey doesn't know to eat the greens? She hasn't been around other goats or get momma to learn from them. Wonder if that makes a difference.

    KimKim7 days ago
  • I absolutely love the idea of Journey and Petunia together & the idea of opening up the side area of the pool so she can mix with you & the kids etc. I know a lot of people said to put her with the newly born goats, but that won't last forever, & personally, I feel she would become attached then they would go off again, but with Petunia, it would be a stable environment for her & one she would enjoy as she would be able to see everything going on. (Just my opinion)

  • It would be really nice if she could have a goat friend so they could help her be a goat. I know her immune system is not good. I just feels she needs friend closer to her type of animal

  • Both rabbits and Petunia, good ideas. Petunia has a keen sense of smell and I'm pretty sure when she becomes aware of Journey and her needs, will be smart enough to compensate, she is a pig after all, and she might benefit with a gentle companion. I'm thinking once they get use to each other, they'll both make considerations for one another, both are smart.

  • Ok I been keepn quiet but nows the time to speak up and be an advocate for Journeys well being. This second class citizen stuff were ur housing her with Putuna will end up with her being used as a pillow or she will eat her for a snack. Move Journey inside. LEs room is perfect. He will be fine if he loves her. She also needs a full time therapist. She also needs another newborn pig to replace Newton and a replacement every other month when they get to big. The littles are going to have to move to some other pasture because Journey needs that one. Its also time for a Full time vet for anything that may arise. You and Jaime should consider working part time so that you can spend more time with her. She looks to be a little depressed so I would look unto what meds she will need. You should hire an architect now to build her a new House/Barn with ramps and exersize eguiptment and entertainment room/spa asap. I hear amazing things about acupuncture please look into it. She will need some time off also. Like vacations. The swiss alps or a cruise. Mabe Italy. You get the idea. Nothing is to much for her. Im just kidding. Lol

  • I don't think that Petunia would be a good companion for an active little goat. All Petunia does is sleep and eat. She is very protective with her food too. Journey needs someone who eats the grain and grass/leaves/plants. Another small goat or big rabbits. Get a couple of big female rabbits. I know some breeds get nice size. We had California's for our daughter. So sweet. Please do some more thinking and talk to the vet as well for her opinion

I feel that Petunia isnt going to be such a great companion considering she is not that active. Petunia likes being alone and sleeps fo the most part of the day. Journey needs someone to interact with. Run, jump and play with. Please rethink this Lester. Im sure in the end y'all will do whats best. Love y'all so much 🌹💯😎
