Yes, your new project
will need a home, a nice shelter from the wind, rain and snow. Keep in mind it
also has to provide protections from predators; many a good project has been lost to dogs and other predators.
Inside of your
secure pen you will need feeders and a water pan, be sure they are up off the ground to try to keep them from putting there
feet in them. Its is best to put two goats per pen. They should be of the same
size. It is not a good idea to mix larger goats with smaller goats. The larger goat will become the bully and the small goat
will grow slowly.
Be the Teacher:
As soon as you
get you goat be the teacher. Spend time with your goats and get to know them.
Let them get to know you. Help them feel safe around people. Tie them up and put your hands on them so they get used to being
handled. You can do this a week or two then start teaching them to lead. Its your job to make the goat look good at the show
and it is much easier to make them look good when they know what to do.
