Pygmy goats

I have post and rail 3/4 way around a paddock and just getting quotes for the last 1/4 to make it imo a square paddock. I have got quotes for stock fencing to go on it. I have also constantly read how bad they are at escaping!! Will this keep them in or do I need to do more? Are they as bad as people say?!

They'll eat the post and rail and stock fencing may not stop them depending on the size when you get them.  They'll go under, over and through the fencing (if they're horned they may also get stuck in the fencing fairly regularly).  If your fence will hold water, it'll also hold pygmies if not...  Good luck!
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible.
