Post: RE: Farewell Finn

Thanks Dragonmaker and Saph. It's been a hard week. We did not expect to lose this guy at such a relatively young age when he's always been so strong and healthy. I realized that his recent vet visits...

Thanks you guys. We miss our buddy so much. We have nineteen other goats still running around and yet the place seems empty without Finn.

We laid our precious boy Finn to rest this afternoon. We don't know what caused his decline, but he was losing weight throughout the spring and looked unthrifty. He went almost totally off feed about ...

Post: RE: Happy 4th of July!

Thanks. He's on his way out and we have no idea why. Three vets haven't found anything they can point their finger at. They did chest x-rays on Tuesday to see if there were any tumors in his thorax. T...

Post: RE: Happy 4th of July!

We had a 4th of July for the record books. The day was clear and cool and Phil and I took Finn and Pongo to Cuchara for their lovely parade and small-town celebration. Finn has been doing very poorly ...

Hello and welcome to PackGoat Central! I'm a long way from Alabama (I'm in Colorado). I love your photos! I especially like the one of the little black kid caprioling. :-)

Thanks, Taffy. This was excellent news to come home to (I've been in South Dakota for the last week). I hope other forest plans look to the GMUG for guidance on how to handle packgoats in bighorn habi...

I'm so sorry to hear about Missy! It sounds like she was well-loved in her lifetime even if it was cut short.

Welcome, Goatiswaggins! I'm sorry to hear that your old forum shut down? What one was it? You're certainly welcome to hang out here! We'd love to hear about your goats and what you do with them!

Post: RE: Saddle dimensions

Looks like you're having a lot of fun! I still think you need to re-examine the angle of your front fork though. Shortening the length of the fork ("legs" as you call them) will not change the ang...

Post: RE: Saddle dimensions

Looks like you also need to tighten up the angle of the front fork. See how the saddle is pointing downhill in the front? It should sit level across your goat's back. Otherwise it's looking pretty go...

I'm not sure. I'm actually not home at the moment or I would go down and measure one of my saddles for you. Can you place it on one of your goats and see if it looks right?

In my experience they don't walk nearly as far or as efficiently as larger goats. Their legs are just plain too short, and they have a very stocky, round build and tend to waddle a bit, which makes th...
