    Do NOT let him do that , push him back down, last thing you need is a male goat dominating you. they can be push and with those horns you need to be very carefull, and do NOT push on their head, its the start of the head butting game. again serious injury.

    Is your male neutered? If he is I wouldn't worry about him putting his feet on you [​IMG] I have 5 goats right now, and have had goats for 10 years... Mine are very friendly, and if I go in with food or treats [​IMG] I have a few that will put their feet up on me so I don't miss them [​IMG] I've never had trouble with dominance issues... All of my goats have horns. I wouldn't have a goat without them [​IMG]

    Are the boy & 1 girl full lamancha goats or are they crossed? very cute!! Once you have goats, you'll never be without them [​IMG] MORE PICS!!!!!! [​IMG]

    Now I can welcome you to my nightmare...trying to make a chicken feeder that is goat proof.

    I'm trying to figure out if I want to modify the PVC version by putting rat wire inside then drilling smaller holes, maybe only 1 inch or 1 1/4 inch in diameter so that only beaks will fit inside, not tongues....

    Or by using rat wire and a 5 gallon bucket method. I'm not sure but I'm thinking the pvc method will work best. Darn goats and their love of chicken feed!!!

    For now we have a regular feeder placed on scaffolding, and we spread it very very thin on the ground. Chickens don't care how dirty their food is, but despite what others say, the goats do care.
