Ultimate Blog Challenge Day 19
What is one piece of advice you would give to someone starting the same thing you are? I would have to say, don’t get small goats. The first goats we got were small goats and all we had was problems with them. I don’t know if this is all small goats because we had Nigerian Dwarfs.
This is the last Nigerian Dwarf that I own and the last that I will own. He is a mix though between Nigerian Dwarf and Nubian so he is not quite as small as they are but he is still a pain just like they are. The Nigerian Dwarfs that we had (2 different times) were all jerks. They would not stay in their pens unless it had a roof on it and they were so very destructive.
I love my standard size goats. They are very gentle and not nearly as destructive as the smaller goats. That is the one piece of advice that I would give. I believe most goat owners go with the smaller goats because there may be a fear of dealing with the larger goats, however, this is not needed. My larger goats are the sweetest. They are very loving and still want to be in your lap when you sit on the ground. Just like the smaller goats so I love my girls. Even my boys are very well behaved and I have two.
As you can see by the pictures, they also have horns. But they so gentle, it’s not a problem.
So what is one piece of advice that you would give to someone starting out what you do? Leave me a comment below and let me know!
Have a great day!
