I have two male baby Nubians. And I want to be able to have them do some type of work, but I don't want them to pull carts is there anything else they could do??

They could possibly do ranch work and stuff (pulling things like fallen branches). But I heard from a pack-goat-expert that Nubians are horrible pack goats... too lazy. They lay down on their packs and don't want to work. I can totally see that happening!! But it all depends on their individual personalities.

What kind of work are you wanting them to do? Unless you plan on breeding them I assume they are wethers(if they aren't already I would get that done soon), which usually are good for pack or cart goats. You can use them as companions for bigger animals like horses...

You could train them for service animals and visit nursing homes and hospitals. Delta Society can help you with that...
