I've wanted to get a couple of goats for years and hubby is finally coming around! I have a few questions... Can the goats be left out in the pasture during the summer if they have a 3-sided shelter out there? Can a goat be bred late in the season (like, maybe late spring) so she won't need to be milked during the summer (we go camping quite a bit...asking the neighbor to feed the goats and tend to the chickens is a lot easier than asking her to feed and MILK the goats and tend to the chickens). That's been the big issue for hubby...he wants to have the freedom to go camping (we only camp over the weekend...never for the whole week). What can I expect to pay for a basic (maybe pygmy nigerian?) goat? I'm not concerned with them being registered. They don't have to come from a great line of milkers or anything like that...I'd just like them to eat the grass, entertain us, and possibly provide some milk and babies. Thanks for any guidance you can give. I've been reading here for quite a while and want to join in on the fun!
