    We ended up getting a baby goat to keep our other goat company. He seemed so lost and just followed the dog around. Fred was his brother.

    I may need some help...so we got a baby for Barney. But I think he might be too young for grumpy Barney. I removed the dog from the equation hoping the two will bond. He (Timmy) was just neuter yesterday. He got a clean bill of health. Fecal was negative.
    So here is where I need advice. Should we get another baby so he act like a baby goat? Our plan all along was to get 2 babies. Barney is not interested in being around Timmy. 20200928_124523.jpg 20200928_124523.jpg IMG_20200926_175933_784.jpg

    You may want a second baby. Maybe then the older one will see it is fun to play.
    But that is just me

    That would be good to get a playmate for the young one.

    Same age buddy would be good.

    A creep feeder area also or safe zone is always wise with an older goat around them as they grow.
