    Hi I am new to goats and would like to know what Nigerian goats grain and hay they eat. And maybe some picts of your goat pens? I need some ideas.

    We built this platform in our goat pen - keep in mind we are very new with goats - less than 2 weeks, but we will keep adding to their outdoor pen. Also it has been suggested to put asphalt shingles on the ramp or to include rocks in their run to help wear down their hooves naturally. Hope that helps.

    Thanks! We have tires and logs to put in their pen but I've never heard of putting shingles on the ramps to wear down their hooves! We are new to goats to! They are not even ready to come home yet!

    I have been off of here for a while. Thanks, we love the goats. Did you get your goats? How are they?
