They eat a lot more flowers and bushes than lawn.

There’s an old saying that if your fence will hold water, it MIGHT hold goats. There’s a reason for that saying. They’ll climb right over/through normal woven wire. ELECTRIC.

Or is the silver skin a non issue as far as toughness is concerned. And is the fat edible like beef fat?

If they get out...JUST ONCE...they will immediately proceed to the newest most expensive, unblemished vehicle and turn it into your OLD trapping vehicle. And they will have fun doing it. If there is a male, castrate immediately. I can't stand the milk...tastes like goats smell, is the best I can describe.

none issue...

The fat is edible... but trim it... I don't like gobby fat on my goat, but it will cook off to a good crispy finish...

I hope not, I have mine in a 2 section pasture... with net wire fences... some new, some old... patch holes when I find them...

Can they find a hole... sure can and do, but I have about 3 gentle nannies that will follow you any where... I also feed every morning, so they come to the house, every evening and bed around here in a field behind the house...

I feed day old bread and corn... I have about 30 nannies and 2 billies...

We've had milk goats before, and never bothered pasteurizing. Just strain it, drink it fresh, and don't drink milk from sick goats. The "goaty" taste that goat milk from the store has is only a problem when it's not fresh. Otherwise, it's sweeter than cow milk.

watch them for runny poop. they get barber pole worms and will take them quick. vets will know what to give you. if they start dropping anything except round pellets like deer get the wormer in them quick.

Goats are not always the escape artists many seem to think they ALWAYS are. Ours stays in a normal page wire fence just fine.

LOL...no I didn't mean how the billies smell! More like a horsey type of smell/flavor. I'm "racist" towards goat milk I supposed since I grew up and still work on dairy farms and don't even like the taste of store milk as well. The pasteurization ruins the natural sugars and homoginization makes it have a mouth feel similar to goat milk which does not really need it,

just quarter them out and throw them in the smoker like fresh ham. I raised 3-400 a year and I always said it would be easier to fence a field mouse than a goat

I just bought two pigmy goats for my wife. I like them so far, but they are definitely capable of getting into trouble.

I won't be eating these but I've eaten a lot of it over the years. Mostly young goats over a ground fire in Mexico or Argentina. Really great, but an older one might need the crockpot. Once I ate a homemade chile verde from goat with home made tortillas. It was the stuff of legend.
