Re: Hi I'm A Newbie with a ??

Not sure I know what a South African Boer goat is. Can you send a picture? Thanks.

We have about 50 South African Boer Goats. Show quality and registered
(100%). They are kind of expensive if you just want a pet and something
to eat the unwanted vegetation. In the past we've had pygmy goats which
make GREAT pets. My daughter has a teacher that wanted one so we helped
her buy one at a sale. She keeps it in the house like a DOG. It is potty
trained, goes on walks with her when she walks her dogs, gets a bath
once a week....when she paints her toe-nails...she paints the goats
horns (I know...I can't believe it ...and I'm a HUGE animal lover) and
it has it's own bed and play area. She just loves it. There are all
kinds of different goats...it really depends on what you want - pet
quality, milk, meat, etc. We buy milk from a lady down the road who has
Nubians (sp?) so we can bottle-feed an orphaned Boer goat. Her Nubians
are pretty too...and if they never have kids, they don't get a big milk
bag....and they are taller and thinner than pygmy goats.

Haven't seen ANY of it on our place since we have goats. Not even
by the ponds.

Whew! Had visions of you knee deep in PI (in shorts; bare-footed)
hauling it out by the fistful:-)

What kind of goats do you have? I have always wanted a goat...
