my little nigerian dwarf wether is really well behaved, sorry to say... he has better leashe manners than my dog. yesterday i was walking them and i had the goat and dog attached to eachother, i dropped the leash, started to run, the goat kept up, when i stopped the goat stopped my dog didn't, Caspian (goat) pulled Inu(dog) to a stop. later on i wanted to see if i could get him to walk through water, i pulled my pant legs up and got in the water, he followed close behind and pulled inu into the water. Caspian got treats when we got home.

Then today i took just Caspian on a walk, picked some dandelions for him as a treat when we got home, walking past my neighbors field the horse was following me waning treats.

So, your neighbours look at you funny, too? LOL Most of my goats heel way better than the dogs too, off leash!

That's encouraing to hear. We bought an ND for my son that we will be picking up this weekend and the seller said she was going to bottlefeed her. She hasn't and the thing is as wild as all get out. She's only ten weeks old, though, so we're hoping that she'll tame down.
