  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    I just bought a house and acquired the previous owners goats/chickens. Right now they are fenced in and have full access to over the septic leach field. Is it worth the money/effort to get the yard re fenced to not include the leach field?
  2. Beginners Goat Raising
    So, I have found a fence builder--yay! One step closer to actually having goats this year. We'll be buying the supplies in a few days. Has anyone ever used the Redbrand sheep and goat fencing with the 4" x 4" squares for Nigerians? We'll be adding a strand of electric at top and middle...
  3. Barnyard Bananza
    Hey guys! It’s been a while. Things came up and we kept getting delays on our barn building, but we seemed to have finally, finally gotten our act together and it should be built by mid or late July So now we are taking a serious look at fencing options. Specifically electric fence, but I...
  4. Kidding Koral
    Hello! So I am brand new to kidding and have been more than blessed to have my first two does have easy, uncomplicated labors in which I missed entirely (and I've been obsessively watching these girls!). But my 3rd girl to kid, was not a happy ending. :( She had been constantly rubbing the...
  5. Barnyard Bananza
    I am currently exploring fencing options and i ran into a YouTuber that recommended the Timeless Fence by Plastic Innovations. He said that it was the best stuff he every used and he even kept bucks and does on either side of it and it kept them in. Do any of you use this or know anything...
  6. Chickens & Poultry
    I seem to be asking more chicken questions than goat questions lately *shrug*. Well the chicks we are raising are chicks no longer and we've decide that before we let them free range we should give them a temporary run to get them used to laying eggs in their shed. We are going to buy from...

    Hi. I am new to goats. My girl got tangled in an electric fence (turned off thank goodness) and it could have been 30 minutes before i discovered her. The wire cut deep into the leg just above her knee cutting off circulation, her leg was really swollen from knee to hoof. It is a week later and...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    Our farm already includes chickens, horses, and cows. We're currently in the research stage of getting goats. I was wondering if our four strand high tensile electric fence would keep an alpine doe and a la mancha doe in. Please right your opinions and/or experiences. All feed back is welcomed.

    My sister recently bought two young Nubian twins, and had been taking amazing care of them. She'd been walking them on leashes, had done months of research beforehand about every possible aspect of goat ownership, and our whole family doted on them. She had named them cute names, and they...
  10. Barnyard Bananza
    Hi All, We are going to start putting up some fencing shortly for our 2 Nigerian Dwarf wethers (getting them soon!!! :wahoo: ) We've decided to go with Non-Climb Horse fence, from TSC, 48" tall. The vertical spacing is 2", and it is woven wire. We looked at it in store recently and it seemed...
  11. Goat Management
    Hi all! We are bringing our first goats home soon, a Nigerian Dwarf and her one month old twins (buck and doe). We have a great barn we are outfitting for them, though fencing is sporadic throughout our 40 acres and leaves something to be desired. The woman who is selling them to us has...

  13. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello, I have 10+ acres of pasture that my family has used for cattle and goats in the past but for about the last 10 years it has either been cut for hay or used for horses. Needless to say the fencelines are fairly overgrown. My plan is to start raising cattle and a small herd of goats to...
  14. Goat Management
    I am building a fence from scratch for my future Goat hobby. I can get small breeds to reduce stress on the fence. My questions are #1 Can I use hot wire to build a 6 high fence or do I need to stretch High tensile wire? Hot wire is 1/2 the price but I know I must build a STURDY safe fence. #2...
  15. Goat Frenzy
    Just wanted to share the pictures of my new goat set up. I am still working some things out and am open to suggestions for improving things. I have one hoop structure for my goats to "live" in, one for storage and milking (this may be moved into the shed, not sure), and we will be building a...
