Hi y'all! I need some advice. Sunday is me and my hubby's first anniversary, and he's getting me a goat (LOL, I know, but it's what I wanted!) We had two pygmy wethers, both 6 months old, and one got killed two weeks ago after a stray dog got into their fence. Yoda my remaining goat has been so lonely, so much so I've been letting him stay in the house with us in my dog's crate. (He was also attacked by the dog but survived so he's been getting babied!) Anyway, DH gave me the go-ahead to start searching CL for another goat. I've found two that I am intersted in, one is another pygmy doe, and the other is a three month old boer doe who is THE most adorable thing I've seen in my life! DH balked at the thought of getting a large breed goat. I'm aware of how big a boer gets, but just wondering from you experienced keepers the following: Is the size really THAT big of a deal/difference? I mean we have a rottweiler, we like big critters. We don't have a huge pasture (1/3 acre, plus), but then again we only will have the two goats. Also, will my pygmy be OK with having a big old girl around? What are boer's like as pets? What's the noise level difference between pygmys and boers? My pygmy is NOISY! What do y'all think I should do? The boer is also WAY closer to us. But having trouble convincing DH having a big goat will be OK.
