Stooopid question:

Since the goats follow naturally, when do you need a halter? When I first adopted the older goats and they didn't know me I only had to use a makeshift halter twice. Then I looped the lead back through the collar with a half hitch on the nose. It only had to be there about 20 seconds before he started behaving.

Thanks. I guess I should get some in case someone else needs to lead them, like if I loan them to my daughter and her husband.

I'll be trying the pack string with halters this weekend. Diego has been in several herds, and has some personality quirks that are growing stronger. They are likely why he has been bounced around a bit.

I am tempted to hook up some remote controls to the halter from the crossbuck. Then I could steer him from 100 yards.

Rex, you think we could get a patent on that? ;-)

What kind of goats are those? Do they poke themselves in the back when they lift their heads?
Can they still absorb water from the air with those straws on their heads when they are all bent over like that?
Are they related to pigs? If not, do they get embarrassed wearing pig halters?

I just had to clear the air of stupid questions...

They look like they work great.
