My friend will be trimming the goats feet before I get her and said that I should trim about two months later. I have been looking at hoof shears and will have them before the goat is here.
One thing I have been trying to figure out is fencing. Where the goat will be, is not where we plan them being later. We are going to use our old chicken coop for now. But the coop leads out to a "yard" Where the permanent pen will be there is more brush. So what wold be a good temporary fence? I was going to purchase cow panela, but they are sold out everywhere within a couple hours drive. Is there a difference between field fencing, horse fencing and sheep fencing as I have been reading different people use these different terms when talking goats. One question I can not find an asher to is how much outside space do they need? Right now I am just looking at minimal as it is not the permanent place, but I also want them to be happy enough to not try to get out.
Oh, and does 70 bales sound abount right for December thru July?
