I want some goats, but its taking a lot of convincing for my husband. I need to learn more form people who actually have them. Some websites are informative, but they dont cover the real questions, like, are they really fun or just a chore?
Do you have to process the milk, or can it be consumed straight from the bucket?
How much do they really eat?
Do they need special hoof care?
Do they need special suppliments?
Do they really eat everything?
Are they smart enough not to eat poison plants?
What sort of care do they need?
Are they lots of work like a horse?
Are they smelly like rabbits?
Are they mean?
Are you planning to breed, is that what the buck is for?
Do you plan to eat the offspring?
Im going to be watching this thread! I want to learn all i can!
What is a good breed for a new goat herder?
What sort of space requirements do they have?
