Congrats on your goats! They are for sure a fiber breed, I'm guessing Pygora Do you have everything you need for em? Are they tested CAE/CL clean? Does, bucks, or wethers?
I'd get 'em tested anyways. CAE is caprine arthritis and encephalitis, and as you can probably guess the arthritis would be very painful..Thank you everyone!
Scottyhorse - I think you're right, they've gotta be Pygora's. After looking at all the pictures of different breeds and weights.
We have everything we need for them. We do need to get them tested though I think. If we are not breeding them and not milking them, do they still need to get tested for CAE/CL? We wouldn't be milking them anyway since they are wethers, but I'm just trying to understand things a bit better.
We jumped into this without the knowledge behind it, but we want to have a full farm eventually (long long term goal). Got goats specifically because we have brush everywhere that needs worked and want to turn our 5 acres into a small farm. Right now the goats are setup at the inlaws who have 3 pastures, 2 barns and a lean-to.
