New to BYC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello! I just joined byc. Found it via Google search on goat topics. I have a horse, 3 cats, a dog, and now 4 goats (one kidded the second day we had her)- all are rescues. There will most likely be chickens in the future. Bought a small farm back in September that needs a bit of work before getting any animals and bringing my horse home. However we did some emergency fencing to make a secure area for the goats as we took them in without planning on getting goats for a while. They were in pretty bad shape, hadn't been fed any quality feed for at least 3 months, living in my neighbours picked over pasture. When I saw how bad they were I asked to have them. (Or I'd have called the spca if they said no) so anyways, I'll be seen in and around the goat threads for now! Happy to see there are some goat enthusiasts here. smile.png here's hoping my new friends make a successful recovery! Thanks for having me here! Liz

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Wishing you the very best of luck with them and with getting some chickens in the future.

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  Lots of chicken folks have goats as well  - they sure are  a lot of fun to watch.  Some post videos of their antics. On one of the chicken threads someone recently posted photos of her  "playground for goats,"  with many things for them to climb and jump on and off.  If  my mind ever worked I could tell you where to find it.
