  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    I'm new to ND goats and inherited 2 quite by accident. They're adorable and about 12 weeks old. They were very skinny when we got them about 2 weeks ago. We took them to the vet who just gave them a quick look over and suggested we come back since they were terrified of even us. They clearly had...
  2. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello! I am a chicken/pig/rabbit momma who was just "gifted" 2 goats born in January in a type of rescue situation! 2 boys (Outlaw is a pygmy/fainting and Bandit is mini Nigerian). I am terrified. Outlaw earned his name after he led me on a 2 hour chase through our neighborhood and ran out in...

    I know I’ve been doing my research but it’s not the same, she’s a week old, had colostrum & strictly on formula (no water) very tiny Pygmy X triplet. Was eating 3oz 4x a day. Today she’s not as spunky and appetite is decreased and has red in her urine and strong smell ? UTI? Vets not open until...
  5. Goat Frenzy
    Hi! I am fairly new to raising kid goats and am concerned about my 4-week old bottle baby. He will never drink more than a few ounces a day and half of the time I have to force it. Should I be forcing in even more? He will nibble on hay and grains. Also, could this be the cause of his laziness...

    Hi everyone. I'm a college student but have a good size yard and want to get 2 boys this Spring. I have never owned goats, so there is a lot I need to learn. Please any ideas for pens/barns, or just anything I might need to know to start off my goat farm.
  7. Beginners Goat Raising
    So I bought a doe that had been bred but her mate was killed by a dog, she was attacked and the owner didn’t want to deal with her. After taking her to the vet, getting the maggots out of her leg and treating her with penicillin shots for about a 1 month and a half she had healed up. Well I...

    Hello! I have 3 goats, 1 year in age, 2 female 1 male... Not sure their breed, hoping someone out there can help us out! The dog in the pics is an average sized pitbull to give you an idea of their size (and don't worry, she's very friendly). Thanks!

  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hi! I'm so brand new to goats that I don't actually have any yet (doing research now). My question is: due to time pressure and other commitments, can I keep a kid around so that I don't have to milk each and every day? Also can I keep just the doeling and the kid to satisfy their...
  11. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hi Everyone: Am I missing something? My husband and I have looked all over the internet and we cannot find any place that has a YOUTUBE or VIMEO type page of instructional videos people have made up on how to raise goats. We find one or two here or there but there is not one place just for...
