Yea meat goat or boer goat they i really good show type I've done them well that what I raise but yea since I been doing 4h for 8 years and doing goats it a lot of fun and it fun and easy goat are really fun to soWe live in Kansas. My 7 year old wants a goat as a pet and for a 4-H project. Does anyone know if there are any reliable breeders in Kansas?
Yea my billy goat is all by himself right now the girls have left the farm and he's very lonely so I have go out there some times and spend a little time with him but he's my boy so it okay for me to do that but it really hard to do that when I work and I I'm not home and he's in his pine crying cuzz he's by him self I feel really bad when that happen but when I get home it's feeding time so it make him happy when he see me getting out of the truck and going to there to him. And he's my world right now until the girls get back I love my baby boy I can't say that only more cuz he's not a babyIf he wants a pet I would not start with a boer wether since they are typically terminal. I would go boer doe or dairy doe. Unless you can find some pygmy or pet class shows. I personally like meat goats but for a pet, they are a little big and can be hard for a 7 year old to hold on too. First, look at what you want from a goat and then look at what type of shows you have in your area. Honestly, a doe of some sort would my first try... I think nigerians would be good for a kid since they are small, easy to handle and very sweet little goats
Oh okay thank youI would look into getting a couple Nigerian Dwarf does. They are small and easy to handle and show. Not to mention they have all sorts of fun colors. I would go to the local extension office and see if anyone has a goat club started. Though if he is only 7 he may have to show a pygmy goat. Depends on what grade he was in last year.
