There is a goat in our neighborhood that needs a lifestyle upgrade...help! There is an 80+ year old man living in our neighborhood who has WAY more animals than he can care for...including 8 horses (mini ---> draft), cats, dogs (can't count how many), and one Nubian looking goat. Living conditions include - but are not limited to -: Broken down cars Broken down R.V.s Various and sundry washing machines, driers, and dishwashers trailers car dollys scrap metal random fencing coils of stacked barbed wire (great for horses AND goats, I'm sure!) The property does not have running water or electricity...his animals have rain water to drink (collected from the various roofs of the structures all over his property). Three weeks ago, my husband drove by his property and all the horses and the goat had gotten off the property (the old man had forgotten to close the gate behind himself!)...so my husband and his father helped herd everyone back onto the mans property (he has no halters or lead ropes for them!) I will try and take a picture/video on my drive by today - my description does not do justice to the poor living conditions for these animals. Animal has been called MANY times to his place...he now keeps hay in the "barn" just to show animal control that he has food for the when they check (they never seem to notice it's the same hay month after month, I guess). He leaves for weeks at a time (I found out he travels to another property he has in Michigan) and no one cares for the animals. This last time I threw hay to the horses and goat over the fence - I felt so bad for them! Get this: I'm actually afraid he'll catch me feeding his animals! If he'd feed them I wouldn't have to! I have three horses of my own, plus five cats, 30 chickens, and a Corgi. I cannot take on any more horses (we are allowed one per acre)...so we just keep calling AC on him (as do many of the neighbors)... I have been thinking of offering to buy this goat from him - for the goats sake - and my husband and his father fell in love with her the day helped catch her and return her behind the fence. Evidently, she just leaned against their legs and soaked up every bit of affection that was offered her way. My father-in-law has asked me several times if I've contacted this man yet. I don't know how old she is....other than she is full grown. I don't know anything about goats - except that copper is important supplement. If - IF I do this...what book would be best as a resource? What sort of broad spectrum wormer do you recommend for Florida? Do there feet need to be done every six weeks like our horses? Tell me what you think I need to know to get started... Any information would be deeply appreciated!
