    So I gained a goat (Charlie) for the next six months for harness training. And I sold a goat (Ellie) to the same person.

    Just a wee bit sad that Ellie's gone, but I know she's getting a really good home.

    Charlie is, shall we say, a challenge. Keeps jumping out ... :doh: to come and find me. Wasnt even bottle raised ...

    I've hobbled him and he has stayed in so far ...

    I think he will be good to train as long as he stays in! He naturally wants to walk in front of me so he is gonna be soooo much easier to drive than my goats, who always want to follow me. He's only four months so its gonna be a while till he fits the harness and we start the proper training.

    He is just so fixated on humans, I need him to stop that and make some goat buddies. lol he's chasing around the two does in season atm.

    Yep, and they are piddling for him and carrying on something shocking.

    They keep asking me to bring them a buck lol but they are not getting one! Because one of them is Charlotte who had the caesar and I want her to have more time to heal. And the other is Spot, and I have three boer bucks here at the moment, Dynamo is her half brother, Da Vinci is by the same buck and his mother is her grandmother (I have no idea what relation that make him to her) and Pride is only a few weeks old lol So she has to wait 3 - 4 mths until Pride is old enough. And Charlotte may as well wait until then too so I have them kidding together - I like to have them all kid at once - I hate drawn out kidding seasons.
