Just looking at everyone's photos in the background plus a few things people have said got me curious ... How many of you house your goats mainly in a pen/yard system? How many of you keep your goats in pastures/paddocks? By pen/yard I'm thinking as in a small yard giving them enough room to run around but requiring that you bring them all their food. By paddock or pasture I mean the area is large enough that they predominantly get all their nutrition from what grows. Under normal circumstances mine are all kept and fed in paddocks. But we have had drought here for the last six years, and the last year have had no feed whatsoever, so at the moment they are penned and fed.
