After caring for animals like goats, cows and horses most of her life, Watkinsville native Zoe Latimer is changing into what she at all times dreamed to be: a veterinarian.
She just lately graduated from the College of Georgia’s veterinary faculty with a doctorate in veterinary medication. Beforehand, she earned two bachelor’s levels from the college in animal science and dairy science.
Zoe’s dad and mom, John and Mandy Latimer, are identified for the Nubian and La Mancha dairy goats they elevate on their day by day farm, in addition to for the customized soaps John makes and sells on the Oconee Farmers Market.
Mandy stated that Zoe at all times appeared to have the objective of changing into a veterinarian, particularly one for big animals.
“She’s at all times helped me with the goats…so that they had been raised displaying animals,” Mandy stated. “She was displaying goats when she was 5 and 6 years previous. A variety of occasions, individuals get into it with goats as a result of the children wish to present one thing, however in my case, I already had the goats after they had been born.”
