    My dad just moved into new house. Hes renting it
    Its and old house, but had alot of potentional.. got like, 4 bedroom and the hugest backyard
    Anyway, it has 2 sheds on it
    the place looks about 1/4 of an acre
    And one shed is like an old chook house and dad was going on about having to mow a 1-acre block and now another yard
    And i said Get goats to eat it for you (I really really want goats)
    And he didnt really say no.. and then mum cme around and said the same thing
    so Im thinking he could fence off half of it and get 2 small wethers and let them sleep in the old chook shed.
    Of course i would have to help fence and feed and clean them but i wouldnt mind
    And its only a 5min drive from my house
    :wahoo:

    So yeah im a little woopy because dad gives in to me alot :slapfloor:

    Is the house in town? My goats will not eat grass unless it is about a foot tall. They are very picky about about what they eat. the farmer down the road said if I want sometihing to eat the grass that I should get sheep! :)

    make sure ........ it is zoned to have goats...and not in town......have your dad ask his landlord....to see if he can have them ....please find out first ....It would just be horrible and heart breaking .... to get your goats ........ get really attached .......to find out you have to remove them from the property...because they are not allowed....... :(

    Yay I am so happy for you!

    Two wethers is a good idea ... but the other thing you might want to consider is a dairy doe ... and maybe a wether for company but sometimes with the right dairy doe she wont mind being by herself ... and then you can milk her and have cute babies as well.

    FYI, goats LOVE bamboo. I have heaps of it, they go crazy.
