    I am new to the goat world and I have been wondering how much space each nigerian dwarf needs. I know it varies depending on your set-up. In this case I am in central TX where the grass is okay but not the best (especially this year!) and I would like the lots to maintain grass...not just become a dirt lot. How much area is needed per goat to keep the grass? Basically I don't want to create a situation where everything is overgrazed. Any rough ideas?

    Nigerians love weeds better than grass as I have to mow my goat pens. The grass gets tall in there and the weeds are almost gone. It all depends on how many you want to get as to the size. If you supply hay and feed they really dont need alot of space just things to play on like a child. and shelter...they hate getting wet.
