Does anybody here use their goats for work/carting, etc....? I breed boer goats and have wanted to get into working/harness goats for sometime. I got a sweet package deal on a trained nubian wether, harness and cart over the weekend.

I know that goats can be used like draft horses on a smaller scale and was just interested in hearing others stories about their experience with working goats and any advice for a newbie. Thanks ya'll. :yeeha:

Jason,

I haven't done anything like that, but I'd love for you to keep me posted on your progress! It is something I have thought about, but never tried. Maybe I should!

Thanks,
Meg :)

Me too. I plan on keeping a wether as company for my one and only buck and thought it would be fun to use the wether as a harness goat as well and make him "earn his keep".
