Second that. Goats will head for anything you do not want them to eat, and waste most of the hay you give them.

Looks like you are struggling to find anything in Your area. I'm probably 2 hours away but you might have to drive to get what you want. PM if you are prepared to drive. I have both goats and sheep but agree you will have the longest grass ever with goats! Just waiting to get mine topped  :-\
