    We are having a blast learning to drive. Geoffrey is starting to catch on and feel more confident about being out in front where he can't see me. He is so much fun! I :love: Geoffrey!

    Thanks! That's just his training harness. I haven't tried his driving gear on him yet.

    He's such a sweetheart! :love: When I'm sitting down he likes to lay his neck on my shoulder and gently rub his head up against my face - reminds me of a horse more than a goat. :horse: :crazy: :lol:

    Wow!! Looks like you guys are doing a great job!! Keep us posted on how this goes...I think it's so neat that goats can be trained to pull carts.

    Geoffrey doesn't like it much yet either. It doesn't help that we were charged by a loose dog 3X. He tends to freeze in that same spot when we're out training. I have to use peanuts to get his attention back and get him moving again. :laugh: I have since bought a paintball gun and carry it with us whenever we leave the safety of our fenced yards. So far I haven't had any reason to use it, aside from target practice. If nothing else, it gives me confidence and that passes on to Geoffrey.

    I'm in Desert Hills, a lil' rural community N of Phx.

    Thanks, Coyote Night! He is a looker, turns heads he does. :p We're still ground driving; train every other day. Getting in as much socialization as possible. Geoff :love:s people almost as much as he :love: s peanuts. :)

    Love the pics -- although, he does look as though he'd like to ride in the cart instead of pulling it! ;]
