I recently acquired (3 days ago) some Nubian wethers to help mow down the brush all over a property I rent. The breeder told me that the goats were not friendly but were not mean. That worked for me because the end result, after the brush was cleared, was for meat (hence the wethers). This was great, until we put them into the pen and I found out they were as tame as wild-caught deer. They are not friendly, but downright stand-offish. Only one will approach me when I have food or goat crack (animal crackers and marshmallows). I actually touched them yesterday with an open palm along the flank, so progress? I will need to move them to another area shortly (they are doing a REALLY good job at clearing brush), but I would also like the ability to check them and be able to administer medications as needed. Should I "manhandle" them and teach them that I am the boss? Somehow, I doubt that will work well for a prey animal. Or, should I just continue the slow process of building a food-love relationship with them? The Nubians have horns. I understand that collars are not the best option with horned goats, but I have no other way to hold onto them. Would a halter or a collar be a better option for them to wear until they start to calm down?
