    I want to get a Flemish Giant and I was wondering if it would be okay to leave it in the pasture to live with the goats. It wouldn't be able to get out of the fence. I used to leave my other rabbits in the pasture and they were fine but that was before I got my goats. The rabbit would have it's own access to its food so the goats couldn't get to it. I was just wondering about diseases with the rabbit poop and vice versa with the goat poop to the rabbit. Any advice would be great.

    It's generally not recommended as there are diseases and parasites that are cross-transmittable.
