I would also like to get 2 large goats to live in my horse pasture. My question is fencing, I have heard different things from different people. I have electric rope fencing. The first strand is about 8-12" from the ground, the next two are about that same distance above the first and the top strand is about 5 feet. This has worked well to keep dogs out, and I think my horse would help with that problem, but will this fence keep the goats in? It is really hot and I am interested in larger breeds of goats. Thanks!
