I have a Boer doeling about 9 months old I am conditioning for show. I am keeping her in a pen that is about 12 x 30, or 360 sq ft. I also have a buddy in there for her to keep her company. I have larger pens where I can put her but I don't want to keep her with the other goats for 2 main reasons. One, I want to make sure she gets the proper amount of her show ration, and the other goats aren't stealing her food. Two, I like the ease of having her in a separate pen right by the barn so I can take her out and walk her. So, basically, I like her in the smaller pen because it is easier to condition her. Recently, I was talking to someone who raises large dairy goats. They said they have trouble getting the kids to grow because of the small pen size. Their pens are similar in size, I think they might be 10 x 20ish. I am worried about my doeling not growing properly because of what this person said. Obviously, I am conditioning for show, so I want her to be as big as she can possibly be. Especially if I am going to be feeding a show ration and working with her. I don't want her pen size to stunt her growth and limit her potential as a show animal. So, my question is, can having a growing doeling in a small pen really stunt their growth??
