We have 2 female Pygmy goats that normally stay in a fenced in area w/access to the barn. At night I put them in a stall in the barn for saftey reasons. However, we had 2 mares recently give birth and the Vet said the best place for them to birth their foals would be our "goat yard" So now our goats have been in the barn for 2 1/2 weeks. They havent had a way to go outside...the rest of our property isnt secure enough for them to be out...our 10 acres is in the middle of a busy neighborhood and they could easily get out of the "horse" fencing. Also, there's sometimes dogs that roam around the neighborhood, so it wouldnt be safe for them. Well, our last foal born just 4 days ago...has low immunities and we have to keep her and the mare in the "goat yard" isolated for that reason. The Vet said they'll have to be in that area for 6 weeks because her little system can not handle new bacteria or infections. I dont know what to do now!! Here's my questions: 1. Can the goats stay inside a barn for that long? It will be over 2 months time when it's all over. 2. Can goats go outside on a collar and a leash? And if they can, do they have to be trained? 3. Any suggestions??? Thanks!
