Yeah! I am getting a goat! It is going to be an Oberhasali goat. The person I am getting it from, is keeping her for a couple cycles to make sure she will be bred. So she will be coming to my house sometime in December. So I will be having a few questions as I have never owned a goat. First off...how much hay per week for one goat. I need to buy hay! Do I need to look for a certain kind of hay? Are they picky like horses or do they have stronger bellies like cows? Please do not talk in pounds, that confuses me. How many bales per week if they are small squares or large squares. I know bales vary, but I just need a general guidline. I will make sure to get extra. And what about grain? How many coffee cans per day per goat. What kind of grain? Our local farmer sells oats. Or do I need a special blend? I know I need minerals and will offer those free choice. I will have one goat, as a friend is offering me one of her does. But I am borrowing a friends goat until she kids so she will not be alone. Next summer we plan on adding one more doe of our own. I will have more questions, but food first. ....oh, does the goat house have to be insulated? Or is dry and draft free all they need?
