Other advantages of goats over horses:

1. You don't have to treat goats like prisoners. Being able to turn the goats loose around camp and not worry about them running off and leaving you out there with all that gear is much better than having to keep horses tied up all the time. You don't have to hobble goats.

2. If a goat falls down he may (but probably won't) hurt himself. If a horse falls down with you on it, you may get a broken leg, a crushed foot, or worse. Goats won't hurt you. Horses will.

3. Goat packers are in better shape than horse riders. Most horse riders I know can barely walk to and from their truck.

4. Goats eat a little here, and a little there. They don't eat the grass in the meadows down to the rocks like horses do.

5. Goat poop doesn't stink and attract flies. Horses are fly factories.
