Happy little chap. The littlest Berkshire is the most rambunctious of the bunch.

My guess is … rooster. Out of thirteen I think we might have six hens.

What a nice place you have! If you get a goat, you should also get really strong, tall fencing. In my experience, goats only like to eat what you really don’t want them to touch, and they will go to any lengths to reach their desires. 🙂 Great photos.

Thanks! I appreciate your suggestions! We certainly don’t want them getting into the garden! We have 4ft metal agricultural fencing – pretty strong and run from the inside of the posts so it animals push on it it will hold (or so we hope). We have electric fencing as well that is working well with the pigs. I have a lot to read about goats before we take the plunge!

Sounds like you are well-prepared! I was just remembering how our two goats had 11 acres of woodland and fields to wander, but they continually broke through our fence to eat my mother’s bushes and flowers! ha
