Pet goats

Does anyone have pet goats? My little boy wants to have a little goat, I've done some research and found they are realtively easy and inexpensive to care for. I'd love to get 2 or 3 since I have a large back yard with tons of pasture. Does anyone know where I can get them? I'd love to hear from anyone that has had goats as pets! Thanks in advance.

Try to call the Agriculture Dept 778-0997. They would know.

i have had pet goats in the states. i prefer female goats. they are not suppose to smell like the male goats. they are easy to care for. they love to climb on things so watch out if you have a car parked close by.

great for clearing brush. we had the small variety. so they stayed on the small side. not sure if they have those here. nubian i think they were called.

Great pets. ours tried to come in the house all the time. when we moved to st. croix my parents took them.

Three goats are not pets, they are a herd.

There's a bartender at the sugar mill bar on the boardwalk named Jaquiline who is trying to find a home for her pet goat I believe. She sometimes brings it to work. Go check her out!
