    Pros to owning a goat, they eat the weeds and mow the lawns, good around kids especially a wether goat, free fertalizer, you can make cheese or use the milk if you have a dairy goat, you can spin the wool if you have an angora goat.
    Cons: If they get loose they can eat your flowers, trees, and garden.
    I love my goats, they are the best pets I have had. Research different breeds and see what fits you.

    I got a goat a couple years ago as a companion for my miniature horse.  That little goat had the BEST and funnest personalities in an animal that I've ever seen.  This little guy who I originally bought as a companion animal became very quickly one of the faves of the farm. 

    I have nothing bad to say about them except that they will eat anything and everything and unfortunately that was the demise of our little Goaty, who I found deceased yesterday on our property.  they are hard to contain and very intelligent.  He got out of his enclosure and got into something toxic.

    But am I or will I get another.....ABSOLUTELY.  I love those little things.
