We started off with 4 original goats. While we plan to raise meat goats in the future, these 4 were gotten mainly just to eat some of the pasture and keep the weeds at bay. They all have their own unique personalities. They’ve learned how to jump on cars, they get out of the pasture and then run around crying cause they’re separated from the others and cant get back in on their own. They try to climb fences that aren’t meant to be climbed. Anytime we feed other animals, they think the food is for them. They now like car rides and will jump in the car if you leave the door open too long. From watching our livestock dog Brie, they’ve figured out how to open the gate and leave the pasture to come into the front yard and then jump on the cars. All of them have gotten their horns stuck in the fencing at least once but they seem to learn so its not a usual issue.

Noggin– the friendliest of the goats. Loves to climb on cars and be petted. Will coming running when you call him or whenever he sees you. Likes to also push his head against your leg like he’s playing some kind of goat game.

Ruby – Most skittish. Still doesnt like to be touched or petted that much. Loves to jump on cars and is always headbutting the others

Pockets – Super curious about everything. He’ll just come up to you and stare at you waiting for you to pet him. Almost dog like. Loves to jump from car to car

Bilbo – A little shyer. Happy to spend his time just eating. Sometimes gets so preoccupied eating that he doesnt realize the group has moved on until they’re far away and then he panics and runs around crying till he finds them again.
