Hi Everyone,
I went on a small but nice hike this weekend in Allenstown, NH. I cant attach the photos because they are too large, but I have attached a link to my Picasa Album so I could share. Feel free to explore the other goat albums I have available for public view. My boys are 5 months old and doing great in their training. I was able to capture all four goats in some shots thanks to the STAY command.

Beautiful goats! Have you thought about how you are going to transport them when they grow up?
In fact I have, I have been pouring over the string "how do you haul you goats". I have just ordered a 5x8 landscape trailer (w/ramp).....not for my goats, but for my husband. This is because I have decided to take over his tilt utility trailer to become my goatmobile. Currently my plans are to use a chain link fence dog kennel 4x6x4 with slats in the links (to avoid catching horns). This kennell was bolted down to a flatbed before to haul dogs. I am also planning on covering the kennel with a canvas cover to protect from the elements. I am trying to keep my costs way down and have got some ideas from the suggestions of others in the packgoat community (i.e., the canvas cover , TY SHANNON). I am still looking for a real solid idea. I have a few more months before my Subaru will no longer suffice. I think that may be another string all together, though.

I don't feel that my "PLAN" is great for the long term though. My goats are horned and the kennel is smaller than desired, not to mention I am a little leary on the idea of chain links. But again.......my budget only permits so much. I have to use what is handy.
