I have been asked this many times and also asked myself! Even Kerry Sims, who gave us Gary cannot recollect when that happened, only that he was four years old at the time. A search through iPhoto has found the earliest picture of Gary dated June 2002. That would make him 16 years old as of now (1 June 2014). He is wearing well and devastating the blackberries on the property. Apart from what he devours in the field, Gary gets supplement pellets every day, liquorice and a goat lick. With the cooler weather, Gary has the beginnings of his winter coat. Just magnificent!
