Raymond the mule has a new roommate – Sonny the goat.

The Corolla Wild Horse Fund announced the new addition to the farm in a Facebook post Wednesday, January 8.

“Sonny came from a wonderful family who took him in when he showed up a stray in their yard,” stated the post. “However, Sonny has a very, shall we say, strong personality and was a bit of a bully to their horses.”

The week of Thanksgiving, Corolla Wild Horse Fund staffers brought Sonny home and began introductions with Raymond: “Sonny isn’t scared of a thing, and didn’t let Raymond’s initial not-so-friendly ‘hello’ bother him in the slightest. Raymond may have actually met his match!”

The pair have figured each other out and are getting along quite well.

“We’re thrilled Raymond has a friend and thankful to Sonny’s previous family for trusting us with his care,” the post concluded.
