Stinky the Goat And Other Farm Animals Line Up For “The Hobbit”

November 12, 2011 at 12:33 pm by Earl  - 

Our message board member Roheryn writes in to tell us that they received a news email from Willowbank, a local wildlife reserve in Christchurch, that states:

Some of Willowbank’s animals are off to Glenorchy to help in the filming of The Hobbit. 

Stinky (the goat), some of the sheep, two cattle – a dexter & a galloway, a miniature donkey and some sebastopol geese are setting off for Queenstown on Monday.

The picture on the right was accompanied with the following little description in the email:

This image shows Stinky getting ready for his trip. He has been taken on walks to get used to wearing a halter and walking alongside David [the handler accompanying the critters to Glenorchy].
