Anyone had experience with goats?

edited October 2010 in Not Sports Related
I'm thinking of getting a couple of pygmy goats, and was wondering if anyone has kept any type of goat and could educate me on the pro's and con's...many thanks.

    Goats are hollow-horned, bearded, ruminant mammals of the genus Capra and the species Hircus. They are raised for wool, milk and meat. Goats are also used to make gelatin, the manure is used for fertilizer, they are used for research models in biological studies, they are used to pull carts and for pack animals.

    Goats have 24 molars and 8 incisors, but have no teeth in their upper front jaw.

    Our Granny kept goats. If you plan on milking them, share the job early as they get used to it & then only produce the milk for them. They're stubborn wee things!

    I love em!

    My dream, to own a goat farm in Lesbos.

    Maybe one day, maybe not.

    I think the competition for running a Lesbo goat herd in Lesbos might be a bit fierce, let the dream go KB'sLS. There are plenty good men for you on here. Ok, there are plenty good men elsewhere.

    [cite]Posted By: Telnotinoz[/cite]Ok, no laughing, but Ive kept goats....if you buy them as kids, be prepared to have to look after them pretty much 24/7 until they are about 6 months old.....only ever buy them in pairs, i.e. 2 females and make sure you dont have any yew trees that the goats can get to....otherwise they wont be live goats for very long. They become very attached to their owners, so dont take buying them lightly as they will need a lot of attention and care...especially if they are kept in a smallish garden. They can be a lot of fun...youd be surprised how high they can jump and what they will climb.......we found one of ours on top of the garden shed when she was a kid....I still cant think how it managed to get up there. Hope thats of some help.

    Great stuff...many thanks. Could have Googled but wanted an emotional and personal take on it. As I stated will be getting a pair (females) as I know they get lonely. Have a quarter acre so hoping this is enough. Will treat them as my children, a lot less trouble and by what you say unconditional love.

    We had a goat when i was kid (pun intended). Anyway within 6 months it had turned our overgrown forest of a garden into into sparse wasteland. It ate everything including the washing on the line. It's poo are tiny little pellets so very easy to clean up after it. Also chased (played with) anyone who went in the garden and finally started ramming the back door to try and get in the house. I'd love a goat now but it's a big responsibility.
