    I wondered if a boer or boer cross wether would work as a pack goat and be trained to pull a cart. They have the size but do they have the temperament???

    Yah people use them all the time for pack goats -- no personal experience but I hear of it

    I think the temperament is up to the individual goat. But wethers are so friendly and they just enjoy the attention

    Thanks Stacey. I have only had experience with Alpine and Saanen wethers and you're right they were sweet. My friend raises meat goats, she has Boers and Boer/Nubian crosses and I just wondered if they would work. I think they are very striking.
