Doncaster is actually not that far from us - 60ish miles.
How big would go x boer get? Have you got some pictures of them?

Ok thanks you!
May I know how big is your enclosure for zero grazed goats?
If anyone knows where to get or has some spare males of smaller breeds like guernsey or bagot I might take those instead. Just to get used to taking care for goats then in the future might expand to millers of perhaps standard large breeds.


I've not actually measured but it's about 5m x 7m plus the shed which is 2m x 3m. I have four in there at the moment but two is a better number.
