I have been raising goats since my first year in 4-H and found them to be an amazingly social animal. I tend to get attached to my goats more than I would like, but goats are the type of animal that you don't mind getting attached to. I showed boer goats and after the fairs I got rid of them. Goats always remind me of dogs in a way. I had a goat named George who would sit, play fetch, and loved being scratched behind the ear. Although I love goats, they are not made for everyone. Goats need someone who will spend the time and work with them everyday. Their pen needs to be where they can not stick their head out (because if they can stick their head out they can get their body out) or jump out of. Goats need a lot of time and attention, but in the end they are loving animals.
