Hi, I'm new to this site, and goats! I'm getting my first ones tomorrow! :clap: I have a bit of a story to as why I'm getting 4 goats... :type: My family recently bought our own horse farm. :greengrin: My mom and I are very big horse people, we have 6, and we compete and everything. I've always thought goats were great. and now i have my own land and convinced my mom into getting goats. The big winning reason to this is that we are a little bombarded with brush on our farm, and the goats can clean that up. We made arrangements with a pygmy goat breeder a month ago to get a wether and doe. They are 8 weeks old. We are getting them in a week, we waited until i was out of school to get them. But, in the past month, we came across two rescued goats at the Humane League while we were volunteering there and we are bringing them home tomorrow! They came from a cruelity situation where they were being underfed and were locked in dog crates. they are still young and are a little too underweight to be castrated just yet, we are taking them back to the Humane League's vet in a month to get castrated. But have no fear! they will be fattened up and happier then ever very soon! QUESTION 1: what breeds do they look like?! :scratch: :chin: Thats Luigi && Thats Mario QUESTION 2: Is it safe to put all four of them together?(the 2 pygmies and the 2 rescues) They are too young to start making babies, right? hlala: QUESTION 3: Vaccines. What do goats need? does the vet have to do it? QUESTION 4: Minerals. are mineral blocks enough? what specific minerals are required for healthy goats? Thats all for now.. I'm sure there will be many more questions as i go on with this little adventure. I really hope there are people willing to help me out! Thank youu!
