Re: Pack Goats

Wow, I've never before been the "chosen one!.

I guess those goats are bringing me luck. First thing in the morning, I'm buying a lotto ticket. Wished I'd have got the goats "before" i put in for the controlled hunts.

Got the email.

Address is:

Randa Enterprises LLC
42 South 200 East
Blackfoot, ID 83221

Or do I have to drive to TX to pick it up?

Re: Pack Goats

jmden,

Gettin' along great! The little suckers are growing like weeds! They are great to have along on a hike. Self feeders, carry no feed. For an over nighter I bring two cups of oats as I can't figger how there is any nutrition in what they eat. They pass on all the good lookin' green stuff and go for the trash.

Its too hot to do much after 9 or 10 am but the temp as the sun came up this morning was 56*. Gives me enough motivation to take them out back for use as caller/decoy for some deer chasin' yotes. We'll see how I feel about it in the morning.

Re: Pack Goats

Not a patient fella. It's gonna take a couple of years for my two little guys to get to where they will be able to pack any weight at all. Thus. . .

Brought a full size Alpine doe home this afternoon. Once she gets used to the new surroundings I'll finish the pack saddle and riggin' and head for the hills.

Somehow I think the goat folks took advantage of a noobie in both of my deals. The first two were two were supposed to be 100 pounds. That was a month ago. The tape out at 75 and 85.

This new one, a 3 yr old, front knees click like a train car with a flat spot on one wheel. I guess I call this one MRE-3

Re: Pack Goats

Just got back from a pack outing . Saw elk, mulies, moose, and miles of spectacular country. Caught something like fifty fish in an afternoon.

Let's see the new goat and the pack fixins!
