    Tomorrow I am getting 2 doelings! I am so excited! Any tips for a first time goat owner would be appreciated. I have been reading about them and now the basics.. but information from people with experience is always helpful, thanks, Hannah.

    How old will they be, will they be bottle feed? Besure to have a shelter for them, draft free if possible.

    Goats are great fun and the babies are so cute, but watch out for stray dogs. We had 2 babies killed this last week, by our own burro, which is suppose to guard them, but the burro was new and didnt know that they belonged. So be careful and have a good strong pen.

    Good luck.
