We have a Togg, Moose, he's 3.5yrs now and we have bottle raised him from a few weeks old. We've had our challenges with him, all things we expected and heard were normal Togg behavior. This is one of them I think. If you read John Mionczynski's book he even states he has to catch his Togg before all the other goats in order to keep him from running away to get saddled. Moose is very sweet, bonded, and has been awsome on all the hikes we've been on. He is so smart though, you couldn't catch him if you wanted to, or at least until he wanted to let you. If we go out just to say hello and play with the guys he comes running right up for scratches and stands next to us, follows like a champ. Now, if we go out with wormer, hidden so he can't see it, he takes off right away and seems to just know. We can never catch him when we want to, only when he allows us to, even with treats. We were very frustrated by this in the begining, but he is so smart and alert on the trail he is worth the extra effort. My husband doesn't like that he is so skitish, but loves how he hears or see's an animal way before anyone else (goat and human). I think they just have a lot more wild in them, but a lot of good instinct comes with that. Especially if you plan to use him to hunt.
