Deb, I had to laugh the first time I saw your description of goats as "helpers". I remember trying to work with my real kids (human) and goats and a Great Pyrenees. Between the goats jumping in the wheel barrow to get "on top", and the dog borrowing every tool I laid down and running away with it, it was a wonder we ever set a fence! Your posts evidence that you are thoughtful and intelligent...make the best choice you can with the evidence in front of you. May you find peace in your decision.
