    Oh nooooo, not at all! I figured I'd get her to work for it, especially since she beats the back of my leg with her hoof as she waits til the big girls get their hay first!

    I guess any goat will do some sort of trick for food, I think it helps that she's young too....5 1/2 months old.

    How cute! How are you training her?

    I clicker train my goats to do silly tricks (e.g. "bow", "pray", "count", "Hi Ho" - rear up and stand erect on on back feet) and we recently started targeting. It's amazing how quickly they learn and how eager they are to work for treats.

    I completely plan on training either one or both of the new little doelings coming early next year. I want to show people that goats can be and are just as smart as dogs!

    I plan on using the clicker and treat method, it works great with my dogs.

    aw liz thats cool I taught my joey this too, it was a hit when I took him to the church thing they had and I took some goats and chickens. I also taught them kiss, and dance( stand on hind legs and turn). And weave through my legs. Trying to figure out what else to teach them. Its nice when they want to learn. SOme of mine don"t
