Goats are browsers so will eat weeds other animals wouldn’t normally but will also delight in your vege patch and favourite roses!  Goats don’t like the wet or cold so should be provided with a shelter, it is not recommended they are kept tethered so good fencing is required.

They are particularly sensitive to parasites so should be on a regular drenching programme. Kid goats should be disbudded at 2-4 weeks of age if horn growth isn’t desired.
