    Ok, so now I am really excited, and have been reading about goats all day.....

    ...and if it isn't too much of a bother to ask i would love to see your goats in their home....what shelter you have for them, what they drink out of, and eat out of...and what kind of fencing you have used!!!

    Thanks so much!

    They say that when you build goat fence to test it you aim a running water hose at it and if water gets through the fence you goat can get out of it.
