    Getting ready to bring my babies home (even though they aren't born yet :p )
    I'm getting two Lamancha doelings from the same breeder---- but can't find my notes I took on crate sizes. :roll: :oops:
    Which one of these would be big enough?
    Large: 36"L x 25"W x 27"H
    X-Large: 39"L x 26"W x 30"H


    thankx!!!!

    How are you shipping them plane or?

    Some shippers won't allow.. two in a crate...so... I would find out first....

    The crate has to be big enough...so the goat ...can stand up normally... and be able to turn around comfortably..... and of course lay down... :wink:

    Ditto what Kylee said, ask the breeder how big of a crate would suffice for shipping two kids. I had two standard kids shipped in when they were around 3 weeks old, and the breeder put them in a smaller crate and they fit just fine.
