    Guess one question would be housing, do you already have a place to keep either of them, or would you have to build? The big problem with goats is usually fencing ... would your horse fencing work for goats?

    Never raised turkeys but goats are not cheep. they are hard on fences an if your fence wont hold water then it wont hold a goat. Looking back, horses were easy....
