    Positives:


    goats are very nice
    they don't eat clothes
    there cute
    easy to milk unless the goat is crazy
    and once you have brought 1 (like we did) you'll could end up with 50!


    Negatives:


    some times eat hair
    sometime very loud
    need lots of care.

    Your color choice against the forum background does not work, if you actually want people to read your post.

    Are you keeping a single goat, like your post suggests? Goats are herd animals and most do poorly when kept as a single goat. Perhaps you need to do more research regarding their basic husbandry.

    I am so confused as to what this topic is even supposed to be about.

    The only part I can read states a claim that goats are very obedient creatures. Thanks for the laugh!

    Goats are obedient creatures? Since when? Mischievious, yes. Obedient, no. Goats won't eat clothes? Sure they will. Maybe they won't eat them but sometimes they will chew on them. They will rip clothes off the line if the get a chance and may or may not chew them. I have had them chew a hole in a shirt I was wearing when I wasn't paying attention to what they were up to.

    I'm sure alice80790 was just Saying that goats are a lot better than a lot of people say! They may not be obedient like a dog let's say but they are nice animals that I'm sure are easy to look after since they don't poo all over the house or bark and growl at innocent people walking past you're house and I'm sure alice80790 is experienced with goats and has never experienced her clothes being eaten!

    Well maybe she doesn't have a camera! And it's not like she said they were her goats! And I know that she has goats because She told me all about her pets and goats on PMs!
