The Goat Spot - Your Goat Raising & Owning Headquarters
Our two Nigerian kids (Cappuccino and T-Bone) were snuggled up to each other this morning, watching each other's backs. Three of the adults were nearby, but you can't see much of Oreo, just his white markings. Billy is next to him, and that's Sparkle (one of the does) behind them. Freckles was on guard duty near the fence.
I read the sticky surgical banding dehorning method and really think it could be something I will utilize. I've been going back and forth on whether or not to allow horns in my herd and I think for everyone's safety and management, horns should be removed.
That being said, which methods are permanent and how do I deal with scurs?
My goats escaped their pen today and got into their grain and hay. Smh.. crazy animals. They are quite fat. Should I give them anything?
I tried to get some "set up" shots of my Loca girl today...it's a bit hard with the camera on self-timer and other goats getting in the way! But we got a few usable ones I think.
She is 4 months old.
This is a bit of a strange question.
I have a couple ND babies that I'd like to use as hiking companions, and maybe to carry a bag of trail mix or something. To lead train them and build up stamina I plan to walk them around the park across the street from my house but there's one problem: the pathways are concrete and asphalt. I live in a suburb of Seattle (my city's website describes it as "semi-rural in nature") so everything is manicured and looked after. I don't want to be inconsiderate but cleaning up goat poop is not like dog poop. Does anyone else have this problem?? Do I just have to carry a tiny broom and dust pan? Thanks in advance for the help.
