Hi everyone. I just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Jake and I am new to pack goats. I am from Washington state. I enjoy hiking, fishing and hunting in the high country. The heavy packs are starting to bother me. I saw someone a couple years ago using goats as packers and I have wanted to get them ever since. I haven't started seriously looking into it until now and I am in the process of buying two alpine wethers. This is a great forum and I have been learning a lot from it along with other sites.
