    hi...we plan on moving and would like to take our 4 (or 5) year old goat, our 11 year old goat and 15+ year old llama (i know it is a goat forum..) is there age ok to travel and what is the best way to do that safely in 4 days or less if possible? thanks! right now we have no horse trailer, just a pickup, and potentially a few uhaul trucks...

    You could use a goat tote...layer the bed of the truck with a thick layer of straw and hay and cover the tote with a tarp and a blanket if it's cold. :)

    I'd make sure they are leash trained before you leave if possible so you can let them out at least once or twice to walk around and stretch their legs.
