Nelson is now about 6 ish. I have had him for almost 3 years now. He is just naughty! He is the alpha. He beats the other goats up, which is fine, but he occasionally shows aggression at me. He has stood up on his hind legs at me, and when he does this he is MUCH bigger than me, and I'll admit, it scares me. I'm fine with horses but that is all I have experience with in the big animal dept. Nelson is well over 200 lbs and horned; I've tried the spray bottle; does not work. Now the hose helps but I don't always have it nearby. This goat attacks everything by the way...you drop the brush on the ground, he'll attack it...ramming it into the ground. He actually uprooted a tree because he would ram it for HOURS. I can't get any other goats out of the pasture without getting him out because he will ram the fence..HARD. I can't tie him up because he throws his head around and tries to attack whatever he is tied to. I'm just at a loss here. I don't want him to hurt someone. It's intimidating when he is looking down at you with his ears back and wanting to ram you. I'm not very big and he can drag me if he wants; he's got about 100 lbs on me. Any advise on getting his goat a$$ mellowed out? How do I know how much discipline is enough and not just being mean? I don't like getting physical with animals but I know that is how they communicate, but I am not opposed to it either...I've given him MANY hard kicks in the ribs and chest. It actually almost makes him madder when I kick him; he acts like it is a challenge. I don't want to hurt him or scare him. He is very social and is the first one at the gate to visit, it is just his ongoing naughtiness that is a problem. AND, this really only comes up when we are on familiar territory; he turns into a big baby when he is somewhere new. Ideas? Anyone want a new goat?
