    im thinking getting goats. they cant be big goats or mean goats or very noisy goats.
    I was thinking pymgy, Numbian, Nigerian Dwarf. I like the big ears not interested in milking or breeding (at lease not yet!)

    also im thinking of just getting one goat. I do have a 6 yr old golden that could keep it company along with people. would that be ok?[​IMG]

    what size is recomened for a goat house that will house 1 (possibly 2) goats
    I was thinking of making one side angled so they could climb it and have be about 4x5 ish
    im in ny so we have harsh wimter and hot summers

    also I may have to scrap my pumpkin garden and donate it to the goats so please my parents its about 20x10 ish I beilve and iwould place the goat house inside the outside run
    how tall should the fencing be for pygmy goats and larger goats?[​IMG]

    thanks so much I really hope I can get them
    any other tips are highly appreatied
