Re: Pack Goats

Looks like it was a very enjoyable afternoon Roy.

The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

Re: Pack Goats

My donk don't get along with the LaManchas. Does fine with the Saanens.

I'd work some kind of a trade for any of you.

Re: Pack Goats

Movin' on to fully equine transportation.

3 good pack goats for sale.

2- 4yr old La Manchas. Good size experienced and ready to go.
1- long yearling Saanan. Gonna be bigger than either La Manchas. Experienced but a bit to young to pack more than the Mountain House meals.

Panniers for all 3. One of the pannier set ups is plastic buckets for packing meat.

Pack saddles for each with separate pad for one and glued on pads on the other two.

International orange raincoats for each.

If you have a short box pickup I've made a stock rack kind of thing that I'll throw in.

These guys jump in the pickup at both ends of the trip. I bribe 'em a little oats once in a while.

Easy keepers a ton of decent alfalfa carries over to next year. The crappier the pasture the better. My pasture is some good grass, some wire grass and tons of weeds. Works great.

Lock stock and barrel for $500.00.

Re: Pack Goats

I know they are sure footed..and just live to get up high eg on the cab of your new pick up.It is true , game doesn't shy as easily from 4 legged types as easily. I have a question though.Who is the guy inthe short pants? Being a hayseed myself, just don't get the short pants in the bush thing.Have fun anyways.Cheers

Haven't had the goat on the hood problem. . . yet. If I do I'll butcher the goat on the spot.

I want to replace them with another donk. I have a 13hh jenny located that would be nearly perfect. She'd pack as much as 3 goats and be better to get along with. Plus wouldn't have to by alfalfa for the goats and grass for the donks.

speaking of short pants. I just finished building a set of leather gaiters. Got the idea from the saddle maker that guided my through my build. He was a big game guide for 15 years for several good Idaho outfitters. Darn these things are nice. I'll post a pic. Nifty fringe and all….

I wear them with short pants on my mosquito infested shooting range out back.

Not only will I be the slowest fella on the mountain, I'll be the best dressed.
