    Hello, I am very new at this. Does anyone know if ANYTHING will repell goats from shrubs? Commercial deer repellent? Thanks All.

    I never figured that one out. Shrubs and raspberries....their favorites.

    Maybe I'll plant raspberries at the other side of the field

    I'd be willing to bet deer repellants would work. But like I tell everyone...don't stick to one repellant. Use one a time or two, then switch brands, and switch again, and again. They (deer) get used to one after a while.

    Ok, thanks. I used to just use a couple strands of fishing line to keep deer away from plants, but someone else said that was dreaming. Anyway, I'll try Skoot to start. I KNOW that works on deer. And again, thanks
