Got My Goat?

My owners have given some thought to getting a goat to live on our two acres.  They think goats are cute and personable and lawn mowers on four legs.  I’d be happy to have a goat to herd, but I am not so sure what our suburban neighbors would think of the 4-foot high sturdy fence that we would need.  In any event, this video on Goats from the Pet Collective will give you the highlights of goat ownership http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6DGnh4I_q4&list=PLB54B4FA970D888B7&index=3&feature=plcp. If you are still interested, you might want to grab a copy of Raising Goats for Dummies by Cheryl K.

Just don’t leave it near your new pet —  goats will chew on and taste just about anything resembling plant matter to decide whether it is good to eat, including cardboard and paper labels from tin cans.

    My husband liked goats. His pilots had a pet goat while in Viet Nam. I like the pigmy goats. I’ll be moving to Florida next month to a retirement community and I will pass along Woofingftons email listing to the many dog owners there.
