I might be selling two goats for a fantastic profit. Animal husbandry seems to come naturally!!

Do you sell goats regularly? We've been toying around with the idea of getting a goat next. A goat and bees.

Hey cousin, I am happy to see you finally got your grafitti stencil idea launched.

We wanted a goat. Or goats. Checked out the (the) goat book from the library and were off-put, but we're just city people. What do you do about the horns? The book described something ungodly horrible, and also castration and certain other husbandry jobs looked cruel. And you breed them? Do you do the entire goat experience?

THE goat book from the library? I wonder if that is the goat bible? Horns are meant to be on a head. You can wrap rubberbands around the
little guys scrotum and they will naturally fall off. He won't even miss em. maybe.

Do you live in Western NC?

Yes, in Marshall, as of two years ago. THE goat book was the only nonfiction book about goats I could find, something by Gail Luttman from the 1970's, Raising Milk Goats for Fun and Profit, or something. Apparently state of the art goatherd technology has evolved since then. Or.. could be she didn't know what she was talkin' about.

Goats have a bible?

Do you have any goat book recommendations?
