Goat advice needed please
« on: July 30, 2021, 02:59:00 pm »


I am new here and am looking for some help and advice about my two Pygmy Goats.

I have a Smallholding and keep alot of Poultry and we have 8 dogs and most recently bought to Goats.

However, the one Goat has become very jealous of the other and is attacking him.  I have two castrated males from a Local Breeder.  Whenever I go up to the run the one goat gets very protective of me and starts on the other one.  They are quite different in size too. 

I have an ankle problem that can make me quite unsteady on a bad day and I cannot cope with the bigger pushy Goat and am thinking of finding him another home with someone who could handle him better.  I am also looking at getting a Donkey and have been told he or she would live happily with the quieter Goat as a companion. 

So I would ask where could I go to rehome the one Goat and is this correct information about the Donkey - as I thought you had to get two together?

Any help would be great. 

Thank you very much.
