The goat I got is pretty easy to take care of. It requires a medium field to graze and a constant supply of water. It is very friendly and curious but that sometimes results in it getting it's head stuck in the fence or figuring out how to unlock the barn door latch. It is prone to worms and bloating, but other than that it remains fairly healthy. It does not handle extreme heat or cold very well, so in the winter I have to put a heater in the barn and in the summer I have to set up a sprinkler system. It breeds very quickly and often produces twins.
