How much more money would it cost to keep a weather? As far as I know they just need Hay, Forage, Minerals, and Ammonium chloride(?). I would only keep one and he would be a nubian I would want him to get big enough to carry carts with wood/people in them. I wouldn't wean him until 4-5 months to give him an extra boost. Would Forage and hay be enough, or would he need more? I know every goat is an individual with individual needs but just a guess. I really want to keep a weather (If I get my doe has one) , but my dad says they are too much extra work and not good for anything. Maybe he is right? We only have a few does, and are trying to get back all the money we spent... if he's going to take more that he can give maybe I should wait a couple years.
