Wethers make great pack animals, too. I have 3 I'm raising for that purpose. They carry camping gear into the mountains for us. Next year they will be carrying 40 lb each. They've had to be taught to tolerate getting wet. And they poop and pee whenever, and wherever, they want. But they troop right along with us wherever we go, thru the water, up and down the mountains. They're intelligent, good natured, and a lot of fun!
