We use both halters and collars. Collars stay on all the time but all of our goats are disbudded. I'm not sure if you should leave collars on horned goats. I know we had a problem with one goat we had. He had horns and he would hook them into the collar of his pen buddy and anything else he could manage to get ahold of. Needless to say we don't have him anymore.

We use halters whenever they have packs on. We have to walk on the road to get to any trails and there is much better control with a halter. NEVER tie them up using a halter though. Their necks are too easily hurt or even broken if tied that way.

We make the rope halters for our goats too. They work great and can be customized to fit each goat. Not sure how you do it but I reinforce the leadline loop and put a swivel style halter clip with reinforced wrap on the clip end and on the loop end when I make them.
