That makes sense, thank you!
That's a great idea, thank you! Yes, in thinking it over it seems like 8-10 max for pygmy goats would be more appropriate. Not looking at full-sized breeds at the moment. That would leave 16-20 square feet for a full-sized goat, and from what I read pygmies do not require the same amount of indoor space as full-sized breeds so even better.
Something else to consider if you are rescuing. Animals can bring in a lot of different diseases to a clean herd - soremouth, CL, Johnes to name a few. Do consider having a completely separate quarantine area for any animals you bring in.
Yes, absolutely thank you! Quarantine pen will be ~50 feet away, and animals brought in after the first few we get (we are hoping to rescue a first group all together from the same place to eliminate a need for quarantine) will be quarantined in sight of the others for 30 days.
Please post pictures once you get your goats.
