Well, DH just mentioned that he would like a goat to, at least, help clean up the back yard. We live on an acre but this newcomer would have the back 1/3 acre. We have hens which go back there too. Would that be a problem? We also have kitties who run back there as well. As a never-before goat owner, what would we need to know? Feed? Care? Precautions? Can you train them like a dog? Are they ok alone or do they need a mate? Are they destructive? Will we regret this or love this? We are animal lovers.......no kids, but doggies, kitties and hens. Help!!! Even website links would be appreciated but to me, down home straight-from-the-owner's-mouth advice is best!!
