We brought home twin 3 month old miniature goats yesterday and introduced them to our Prys. What a job!My prys have no goat experience.
I had the dogs tied up when I took the babies out of the car. Precious went NUTS! She wanted these babies so bad she was all over them and they were scared to death so I separated them--goats in the pen dogs tied up nearby.
Rocky could care less. Precocious almost chocked herself trying to get at the babies. I brought her inside and she paced and barked all night wanting the babies.
This morning I tried to let them get introduced through the fence but Precious was a wreck. She was so excited. One of our barn cats came by and Precious began licking her from one end to the other --I assume venting her affiction on the cat. The goats watched (which I thought was good for them to see).
Later I took her inside the fence on a leash. She was intense. I held each goat by the collar and allowed her to lick them. I finally had to just let her go in the pen with them.
She ran them ragged until she got them in the igloo then put her head in an sat down. I thought she would never let them out so I leashed her again and then let her loose and more chasing.... I had to settle her down several times but after a hectic day they are all happy together. Instincts took over. Both dogs are laying down while the goats graze. Everyone is happy. Whewwwww
