I was browsing the internet and paper the other day and we'd been considering getting a goat or two for a little while, mostly because we love them, and secondly to make a dent in the hillside of mixed grasses, weeds, etc. that we can't mow since we're not sure what's under it (most likely just ground under... but there could be some loose rubber irrigation piping). We found a farm close to us who has several kid nanny's for sale, mostly offspring from their milking goats, all are vaccinated and dewormed. They are all Nubian/Boer crosses, Boer being the dad, Nubian is mum. I have a few questions for you goat people! ... We have a 50x30 barn, that has a few stalls in it right now.. but clearly need work. We were thinking of tethering her, or putting up some temporary fencing (step in plastic posts) with four lines of electric, would this be good enough if we decide not to tether her? ... If she is tethered she'd be on the type of tether base that can spin, so she doesn't get tangled up. Water... we have a 100 gallon stock tank doing nothing right now, is this too much for her and if you know what the big rubbermaid stock tanks look like, is it too tall for her? Should I just fill up a regular stable bucket? The goat would have about an acre of mixed scrub and grass to chomp through... should I feed anything extra? She would likely come in at night starting in or around the end of August beginning of September (she'd have a run-in shelter until then) because we need to get the barn cleaned, and a the stalls started on before she can come in.... it's disgusting, TRUST ME, and there is some weird brown/clear liquid dripping into one of the stalls and we've yet to identify what it is. Also, There is a goat farm by our old house, and their goats had what I can only assume are dog collars on! ... lol, I was wondering... can you get a small halter for a goat? She'd have distinctive ears, longish floppy ones, and the facial structure seems okay for a halter. I know at the co-op I can get calf halters, and foal halters...but can you get GOAT halters? Anything else I should know? We're going to see the goats tomorrow but we're likely not going to buy one until we have the new car (the old one ... well died) and we're now getting a small truck, Ranger .
