>>4170054We moved to discord.
>>4170070nice eyes. on the goat.
>>4168634I don't come on /an/ that often so not many goats coming from me.
>>4170070your wife is stunning, congrats. but calling that woman a goat is a bit cruel don't you think? I mean I get what you're saying but you could have just cropped her out of the pic instead of humiliating her on the public internet :/
>>4168565Are there distinct breeds of slay goats or can you theoretically train any kind of goat to pull a cart?

goats are important
What are some things I definitely should know before acquiring goats?
>>4185349They are good climbers
>>4182921this is the smuggest goat I've ever seen
>>4185349They can and will die seemingly at random
>>4186065No, I've buried all my examples
>>4185584I hag that happen to me when I was s kid, one of them died during a thunderstorm.
>>4185452two dozen? fucking hell, who buys two dozen large animals without knowing how to take care of them?
I fed one of my goats a rose. :D She enjoyed it a lot. I made sure there were no big thorns.
going to look at 2 alpine doelings next weekend lads
>>4187009nice are they your first goats?
>>4187009Alpines are very smart goats. They can be quite sassy. Young goats learn tricks incredibly quickly. I reccomend teaching them some. It's pretty fun.
>>4187970can you make them sit or do a flip?
>>4189668Sitting sounds more advanced, but possible . I taught one of mine to spin in a circle pretty quickly as well as going on their hind legs to touch their nose to my hand.
>>4189776That's fun. What do you do to train them?
>>4189866First. Get some goat treats they love.Then it's a matter of showing them that following vocal commands means treat.The easiest way to do this is teaching the "come" or "here" trick. Say here, touch their nose and give them treat. Continue repeating and increasing the challenge until they will walk to you to tap their nose on your hand or go on their hind legs.You can also use a training ball, which is a soft red ball on a long stick. Goats are curious, so they will go to sniff or nibble on the ball and that's when you give them the treat.Usually it only takes a few minutes for them to get it. Younger goats are way easier than old ones who will just get pissed off at you lol. The enthusiasm of young goats to do tricks for you is really adorable.
>>4168565Man i just wanted to see pimp mobiles
>>4192719When being progressive was based. The good olde days.
What a regal looking goat.
Had an interesting experience a couple hours ago.>biking home after a day of garage saling>pass a paddock with a couple goats>goats bleat at me >say "hello goats" back and continue on my merry way>goats follow bleating down the length of the fence>some ways down the road I realize I can not only still hear the goats but they seem much louder>look behind me>one of the goats has phased through a six strand electric fence and is chasing after me down the side of the roadHad to wheel around and walk after the goat back to the house across the road from the paddock to let them know they had an escapee. A lady soldier driving by stopped to ask If I needed help but I figured I could manage. (as long as someone was home)Couple big dogs in the yard put a wrinkle in going up to the house but their barking brought a girl from out back and she came over to get it back in. Or tried. She got the gate open and attempted to get Goat1 back in while keeping goat2 from getting out but goat1 wasn't cooperating. She finally had to lead it all the way around the paddock to the stalls, during which time made my getaway once I was sure it wasn't going to resume pursuit.
>>4193181What are the kids supposed to do there?
>>4194541Classic goat shenanigans
>>4194609They're just riding dirty. I bet the goat is trained to turn with the reigns like a horse would.
>>4195254yes gib new link
>>4197404weird goat not trying to dominate by standing on top of the walls
I fed my goats some of my home grown garlic today. It was really funny.
>>4198488I think she likes stretching out on it. Dozens of goats have lived on this farm and she's the first I've seen do it
I can't get over the slit eyes
One this years bottle babies. His mom had 5 and gave up 2.
>>4199820They're round at night
I want to be as comfy as a newborn kid with a belly of warm milk in a soft blanket...
They can definitely be little shits at times though. Nothing tests your fencing like a goat.
>oh shit, I made these
The bucks getting some pumpkin after finishing their yearly "work" with the does.

One kid escaped and got into the paper towels in the tractor shed. Caught red hooved.
>Awwwwwwwwwwww yessssss HAY
Fellow goat bros, do you dehorn or not? If so what method? Do you do it yourself or have the vet do it?I personally dehorn all the goats born on the farm with the hot iron method after I learned to do it from the vet. We have like 40+ kids a year so it would cost too much for the vet to come out and do it which means no painkiller. Its pretty awful while you're doing it and no doubt it causes intense pain. However, they seem to recover pretty quick and are back running around within 5-10 mins of it being done. I do it so when they fight its less traumatic, so they don't get caught in the fence and ripped off as the goat panics causing them to bleed out, and to be honest pure cosmetics/customer choice cause most people that buy goats from me want them that way. I feel really bad about doing it but I kind of see it as a necessary evil and 60 seconds of intense pain that is over forever once its done. I also give them their shots and castrate the males at the same time so all the bad stuff is over with at once. Pic related, this is a little guy a couple days after the horn burning and he seems fine. Hope I didn't kick off a shit storm, been farming for 8 years and have a degree in Animal and Poultry Science from a well known ag college but its my first time really posting on /an/.
>>4199944who would do that to a goat!?
>ywn have that primal dopamine and oxytocin dump a less sentient and more instinctual animal feels completing its purpose in life and continuing the species and specific gene line. In the sun, two healthy babies nursing, everybody well fed, never been really hungry your entire life, out of clean water, or faced a true fight or flight level danger, healthy, lots of herdmates to socialize with, tons of space to roam, things built specifically to climb and play on, and with a barn to sleep in at night. Twice a year the humans jab you with a needle that feels like a bee sting that you don't understand but they give you treats afterwards so its worth it. No lions or Africans trying to eat you. The absolute dream goat life.
Today I learned you don't sneak up on a kid resting in the designated napping bucket without warning them or they get scared when they first wake up.
What kind of cool goat breed do you have in your area, Anons?
>>4177293link is dead, send a new one
>>4201267>The absolute dream goat lifeYou could call it the goat goat life
Don't just post in the discord fuckers
>>4177252How is that even physically possible bros
>>4205985They love climbing and are really good at it.
Hey there.I noticed you haven't posted a goat in some time.
Post sexy goats
New goat! Fresh of the Press!
>>4210196cute goat Interesting that the baby is just born and doesn't mind a human hanging close by. Neither does the mom.
Been gone for a while sorry working on fences and started and evening job
>>4170070>posting on here instead of having her sit on your face while you pet goats
>>4211597Florida anon! Did you sell the Eid goats yet?
her name is maruchan.... hehehe
>>4212116No gonna try holding my goats until winter and selling them heavy this year. That way when I take them to market I am bringing more lbs.
>tfw picked up my first 2 goats over the weekend feels good lads
>>4211597Wow that's a really symmetrical goat head
>>4170070>brown eyes>no nose bridge>round foreheadla creatura
>>4214525Wew lad look at those milkers
>>4199973That's the method my mother has used for years. They recently got back into goating and the wether they had hung itself on their bucks horns, so now the goats are collarless until they can sell that buck. It's awful but I think the alternatives can be worse.
>>4211037They are very friendly mothers so the kids have no fear of us. I climbed into the stall with the new ones >>4217000 yesterday and picked them up. No issues, the mother wanted scratches as well.
>>4211037Generally the mothers don't really mind too much, yeah they will be kinda near and not really loving it but not too the point of violence.
>>4183705>>4184454The movie VVitch was also good
>>4222483are their ears docked, wtf is this shit this is gross
>>4222585They're called LaMancha goats and they're born like that
>>4222483Don't put that thing near youre croutch you diqgusting zoo
>>4222587Rent free. Enjoy being constantly on edge around animals because you don't want to look like you're TOO comfortable around them.And nice spelling. Aren't christfags supposed to be literate since they read their desert jew book so often?
>>4222586Not them but that's a load off my mind. Saw some like this at a fair a few years ago and thought they'd mutilated the poor things.
>>4224753Some goat farms will crop ears and horns because it keeps the goats healthier.
Why are they're so creepy looking if they're only herbivores
>>4186168The upper middle class. Same people responsible for every other problem.
Threads ago, the OP had links to state programs (or subsidies, or something) for goat farming.Anybody got those mofos saved?
