Any other Goat owners here?

I recently added a small group of Goats to my 'pack'.

As my property has not been grazed for a few years i decided to get a few goats to help keep the bush at bay!

Goats are awesome land clearers and quite the social animals as well.

The Herd!


All girls, their names are.....Ann, Bell, Pepper, Pinto and Bean!

I had a goat once, for a very short time. LOL. Too feral for me. Now I've got Dorper sheep which have so many goat-like tendencies that I think they must have goat there somewhere in their pedigree. Some have big droopy ears, hair instead of fleece in some parts, they eat anything, they love climbing, they're a bit feral too.
I give you just a couple of years till your flock is this size. They're pretty goats and your kids are going to be too adorable to part with. That's assuming you'd breed with them of course. Love the goat on the left.

My neighbour up north has miniature goats they are very cute here is a couple of pictures of them with my daughter... Yes they sure do know how to clear some land I have seen that in the area they made for them in a few weeks they had cleared all the bushes of leaves.

Goats are great pets and good at bush clearing. They also like to eat flowers and veggie gardens ;-)
Mine are 2 Nubian siblings that I have had for 8 years. The male was castrated as a youngster so he is safe to keep with his sister.
