Default Long eared goats

Anyone ever had goats? I had a couple of long ears when I was young and they were the best pets ever! Aside from tortoises, of course.

Hello and welcome what torts do you have.
I have an old goat at home she is very clever she can wash clean and if we are very lucky can cook tea without burning it.

I've always been a bit scared of goats due to their ability to chew anything in sight! I'm sure they're gentle really though. Such a great photo with an expressive face.

Gordon, I'm sure your old goat is a star putting up with a big kid like you!!

Ha ! that's hilarious. I think you have a donkey too cause you seem to talk the hind legs off it ! boom boom ! And a fox !!

Welcome MT, I love that Goat - it looks like a TV presenter, and now for the news, a donkey has escaped from Wiltshire with its hind legs talked off... CB

Never had goats, but these 2 would make me think. They look full of character.

I've not kept any goats but I think they look lovely. I like those goats which look like halves of two very differently coloured ones joined together.

They do chew everything, its true. No need for a lawnmower with these two around. Or a hairdresser for that matter.

Hello and welcome, lovely goats. Gordon if you have an old goat that can do all that, I'm sure your other half is very grateful she doesn't have to do it all ! 😉
