Loved my Boer Goats

Owning my two goats was a great experience. Boer goats have a jokester disposition. Rico and Sasha were very sweet but not always easy-going. They could be temperamental, jealous, and hold little resentments. If they weren't happy about something, they would let you know!
It's important to have a decent sized fence because Boer goats are large and curious. They would try to escape whenever possible despite having a large enclosure. They will eat anything and this was very convenient when I had scraps from canning fruits or vegetables.
