    spent a little QT with my goat kid. Not really sure I'm goat material, as we are into sheep, but this one little one,.... sure has a personality.....

    I'm glad you spent time with your little goat. I think lambs are cute, but goats have them beat when it comes to personality. Goats are the smartest livestock I've met.

    i never had sheep and can't really compare but i know my goats are all very differnt in their personality.
    for example i have one that likes to talk. she is the youngest and smallest of my kids. she also keeps everybody busy in the barn, wants to be friend with all of them. another one is specialist in observing. if i would not know her i would think she is the lowest on the totem. but she is not. she is staying her ground and is first with eating, maybe she will be herd queen some day.
    i sit hours in the barn and watch them interact. this is not always easy because they all want attention :rolleyes:

    Lambs are cute but dumb. They just get dumber as they grow. (I have a couple of dozen sheep). Goats are brainiacs as soon as they hit the floor. I had to raise one bottle baby last year, brought him in the house because i'm lazy, he crate trained, would go in there to pee and poop when he was 2 days old. Oh yeah, he's pretty spoiled now as an 8 month old lap goat.
