    I think the only cure is to BUY MORE GOATS! [​IMG]

    the only way to stop buying goats is to breed goats

    Quote:HA, forgetaboutit. There is no cure. I always thought chickens were addictive but that has nothing on the love I have for my goats (and their milk and the yogurt and the cheese and the kefir - I could go on and on).....

    I truly adore my goats and never would have known they each have such distinct personalities. They are very endearing animals....

    You are done for... this is terminal! My wife said lets get a couple of goats. So we got 2. Then 5, then 5 more, then 18... Yep we are up to 30. Not to mention 13 sheep, a pair of Mini-Donkeys ... and so on and so on. Have Fun!

    We also have the same disease here, got our first bred registered saanan, and had a baby, then got our billy goat, thought if we bred our boer with the saanan, we wouldn't be tempted to keep any of the babies.... wrong!!!!
    now my first goat trys to come inside, I think she is trying to get on my computer and find more goats...
    keep your doors locked!!!!!
