Nigel Tuffnel and his brother Derek Smalls originally came to NMF when their family was moving and couldn’t take them along. They were extremely skittish, not trusting people at all. They were adopted by a great family, but unfortunately things didn’t work out and they were returned. They were still quite scared, and didn’t want to be handled by anyone except our founder.

Truth is, she had fallen in love with them the first time, and was sorry she hadn’t adopted them herself! We saw their return as a sign, and they joined the sanctuary herd. Nigel is a sweet, gentle soul. It takes him a while to trust new people, but once he does, nothing makes him happier than a good scratch between his fabulous horns.
