Oh, how cute! My husband's aunt has sheep...lambs aren't nearly as cute as baby goats, IMO...and I hope baby goats aren't nearly as spastic! lol

Lawnmowers!

More like brush cutters.  Leave a pair of goats penned in a forested area and all you have to do is cut the large trees down and roto till for garden areas. ;D  The big problem when you use them for lawnmowers is the like the wife's roses and flowers more.  The are like bad kids eating dessert before dinner.

Congratulations.

I can appreciate the eat everything syndrome with goats.
Have opted for a smaller clean-up and fertilizing crew - Guinea pigs.
Started back in November with 2 sows and 2 boars.  Currently running at 16 stock on hand and 4 adopted out.

Congratulations!
How big of a barn/shed do you have for the 5 of them?
How much graze area are you providing?

I added chickens this year and am thinking hard about goats for next year.
