We are still debating on getting a LSD now or later on. Right now we only have the goats on a small pasture for the winter (about an acre), and the summer pasture is only about 3 acres. We currently only have 7 does. Is this enough to keep a LSD occupied and not be tempted to wander? We are hoping to move in the next year or 2, the property we are looking at is 47 acres completely fenced, at which I will definately need a couple LGDs. I was hoping to have a dog well bonded to the herd and working well before the move. I've also heard they bark alot during the night. Which may cause some issues with the neighbors, the area is becoming too developed (why we are moving) and have a lot of city transplants. The closest neighbor is pretty friendly, but their house is also practically in our back yard, so I don't think they'd be too appreciative of barking all night.
