Why Goats Rule

Remember all that stuff I said about sheep? Goats are the polar opposite. A goat can survive for a month on four drops of water and a rusty tin can. They are nearly impossible to contain, and even harder to rope. If you had any doubt which breed is superior, you need to see this: Sheep Surfing Notice that the goat has figured out it can use the sheep as a stepping stool onto other stuff. Next week, he's going over the fence.

That's too funny. I agree, that kid is probably long gone by now.

They eat poison ivy AND surf sheep?

I want.

Agh, goats. We used to raise goats, starting with two wild Irish nannies that were rescued as kids from the mountain we live on. Those little sh*** can go OVER a fence, under the fence, through the fence, and when all that fails they'll just take down the fence or trick you into leaving the gate open for them. We kept them for weed control, garden manure and milk, but I only lasted five years LOL.

(Chuckling) The problem is getting the sheep to move when you want it to. Otherwise it's got an exellent game plan escaping the pen. (Hugs)Indigo

I still THINK I want goats for weed control! My husband says NONONONO! He's probably right, but we sure have lots of weeds to get rid of too... and my dogs would LOVE to mess with them everyday!

I like goats. They are cool, and full of personality. And if you keep them picketed versus trying to fence them in they're not tough to control. Just be sure to get a female or neutered male. A billy goat in rut is one of the rankest odors on the planet.
