Things are pickin' up in the pack goat arena.....
Had a visit the other day w/packgoatguy. Took a look at his goats. About all a guy can say is that "they ugly!" Friendly but bonier than all get out.
Checked out the goat hauling equipment. Have about everything needed. That's good.
My fences suc to say the least. Will have to workaround that or upgrade over time.
Checked out an add in the Thrifty Nickel.
Lady has been raising Saanens for 50 years. Said she had some wethers @ 100 lbs. Just right for butchering. Very well fed young ones. They must grow like a lamb. About a pound a day for 100 days.
Was shocked to see the bucks that sired these fellas. Biggest damn goats I've ever seen. Conservatively estimated by owner to be over 300 pounds. Stunk like hell......
I think I bit the boolit and committed to 2 of the little suckers. Gonna be hell to pay around the house when I bring 'em in.
Not quite ready for them but since when am I ready for anything I start.
I'm figgering these suckers will be ready for at least some light packing by this fall.
Till then I'm gonna be larnin' how ta train a goat.
and how to keep the suckers at home..... May have to turn into a Bedouin.
