Re: Pack Goats

no i dont. Obers are a medium breed so i am hoping for the 150 lb. range. the trade off is that their disposition is incredible! Great to be around, great with my kid and know problems with water. (crossing creeks, etc.)

SKI ... I can tell you things can get a littler confusing for a while if you are sleeping on your back with your goats laying beside you on one side and you wake up and in the moonlight see even a young blk bear stairing down at you from the other side. Matter of fact my nose almost hit his rump as he was turning leave and I was coming up, I can still see the immage. I don't think he realized I was there , I think he was still wondering what that strange goat smell was even as it was miggling with the smell of the gun powder ...

Re: Pack Goats

Packgoatguy,

This is the most interested thing I have ever heard of. I am seriously thinking about trying this out if I can talk my new bride into it. I have 3 horses that I have hunted with in the past but they are such a pain in the butt and just make more work of things usually. Convincing the wife on getting a pair or 2 shouldnt be hard she used to have a heard of boers and when I briefly mentioned it to her tonight she seemed interest. So I hope it is ok with you if I ask more questions of you as they arise.

Thanks, JRW
