I sure understand your problem.
I really should just avoid even looking at Craigslist.
And then on my packgoat list they send a ad for
a packdoe and her son. The son being 3 1/2 years old.
Issues being they said they do not like the saddle.
Fine once the saddles are on. But do not like you to
put them on. OK, I could deal with that. Not like they
are huge Horses. And training would probably work for
that issue.
My problem is I do not have pasture. I have to hay
all year long. Except if I take them on walks or on
packtrips. And goats eat more than I thought.
4 goats eat about a 1/2 ton in a month and a half.
Our temperature being -5 to 15 degrees. And have 2 plus
feet of snow.
I surely do not want them losing weight in the dead of winter.
So the cost of feed is what is holding me back from
getting more of these wonderful critters.
