Am I the only one that enjoys pictures of others packgoats? I doubt it. Post your pics here for us all to enjoy....these are my best pics of my only goats (so far...probably two more coming next spring/summer). currently about 10 months old...

Hello Jeff,

nice pictures.

Please don't take it wrong but from my point of view you should place the halters better. The noseband is too much down on the soft part of the nose and the neck band should be higher up towards the ears. If it won't stay there you can secure it with a small forehead strap.

Eveyones goat are very nice here! Sanhestar- I really like the coloring of your black and white goat? It is an alpine right? I saw ont that belonged to a kid at the fair, and it looked just like yours except dehorned. Everyone was stopping to look at it and I thought it was pretty cool too. I am hoping the guy that i'm getting my goats from will have a nice structured black and white one :)

Hi,

actually he's a mix of Boer, Saanen, maybe Holländer Schecke (a painted goat breed from the Netherlands)

Hello,

I don't think that you will find Holländer Schecke in the US. I'm from Germany and even here (and in the Netherlands) they are rare.

I know this post is old but I thought I'd add couple pictures. Unfortunately my first reason for getting goats was not because I want to pack with them. I keep making mistakes...even after I decided I want to pack with couple of my goats. Anyway, I have three Boers and two Alpines. I think only one of the Alpines would make a good pack goat. The other is a shrimp...who I hope is just a slow grower.... First picture is all my goats. Second is my pack goat prospects.

Otis, teaching Chester a thing or two about crossing streams.

Heading into one of the basins in the Wind River Range at 10,500 ft elevation.


All loaded up and ready to head back to the trailhead.

Nice pics, nice goats! I like Festus, (may steal the name from you also for a future packer). What kind of goat is he? Are those Kiko horns?

Nice bunch of boys. 9 miles climbing with a load. I'm impressed. If the T-storms ever quit, I will be getting my boys in shape for bow season. Actually, me too!
