  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    I posted a few days ago about my wether jumping in my lap and the possibility he could be showing dominance in this behavior. I think I may have been correct.. he’s started to gently push me with his head for attention. As in, if I’m petting him and I stop he will gently push into me for...

    Hello! I'm new here. I’ve had my 2 goats (brother, weathered, and sister) since last year. Recently we had a buck come stay with us for a few weeks in hopes of impregnating our doe.

    Question about introducing goats. We have a Nigerian dwarf (3 years old) - whether, who lost his alpine/saanen buddy in December. We just got him a new friend since he has been alone who is a 7 week old buck (Pygmy, Nubian, lamanche) - we eventually plan on getting more. we have introduced...

    As some of you know, I’ve not had goats for very long. Currently my ‘wether’ is acting very aggressive, and humping Betty (our second goat) a lot.

One wether (named Tito) will...

    My two pygmies, brother Bo and sister Izzy, were born on 2/11/19 and I bottle raised them. They are my only two goats. They never played much together but they were generally fine. Bo was banded and when they were older they moved from the house to their pen (about 250 sq ft.) and their...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    I'm new to owning goats. I have 2 Nigerians and have had them since they were babies. A 1 year old doe and a 9 month old wether. The doe is a sweetheart, but I have been having some old behavior issues with the wether. He was castrated when he was 6 months old (3 months ago). Over the...
