At what number do you think goats begin to feel like a herd? I saved up for Boer goats and got two wonderful does. The are are so sweet and I love them! One is pregnant and due on Jan 9, doing very well so far. The other is being bred right now. I went over to visit her today and she was laying down with the other 10 does being bred right now and she had her eyes half closed chewing her cud with a very content look on her face. I am just saying, she never did that at home. She was always concerned about the next time I would be out to see her, she and her doe mate both walked around much of the time looking a little lost and nervous about when their people would return. How many goats does it take to make them chill and just feel safe and happy without me being out there with them? Anyone every noticed an ideal number that is small but big enough to make the goats feel happy and content?
