I'd believe it.. saw some photos of a rough looking bunch up the east coast somewhere recently. So tough they even travel with an attack goat.

It's the sight of the tie dyed patches that send a shiver up one's spine:p

Not my Goatini! She's only small and not a pest.

I'm not opposed to shooting any other goats of course, just the baby ones :love:

Pahahaha I don't want any more but thanks :rofl: I have enough trouble with one, she literally walks all over me!

If I had a bigger place I would definitely get her a friend, but she will just have to make do being an only goat.
