The art of good husbandry and daily care in keeping these loyal and challenging creatures.
Goats are surprisingly gentle and affectionate, contrary to their undeserved ‘ready to butt’ image. As intelligent herd animals they need to be kept in upwards of a pair, rewarding the owner by lending their distinctive presence to a backyard menagerie or smallholding. Goats are easily trained to fit into your daily routine and you will gain much satisfaction in keeping them right, as well as much enjoyment from their intelligent antics as a dedicated owner. At a more advanced level they can provide milk for the more serious keeper. At whatever level you intend to keep goats at, this book will set you on the right course from the word go!
