My son wants one.
What do they do? How do you take care of them?
What do they eat?
Are they high maintenance?
Am I supposed to milk it to?

i love love love goats! they are pretty easy to take care of and trimming their hooves isn't hard (let someone show you how and buy the right equipment). i would go with a couple of females as pp said. do keep in mind that goats do like to eat things (the stereotype is true lol), so just keep their pen away from your main house and clothesline or anything else not snack-appropriate lol. also make sure that you can have goats where you live (although i'm assuming you must be in a rural area to be considering a goat). goats are alot like kids. they love to play and climb.... they have very different personalities and they crack me up. i wish i could have one! gl!!

There is a good book called Storey's Guide to Raising Dairy Goats: Breeds, Care, Dairying. Amazon.com has it or you should be able to pick it up at a Tractor Supply. I'm trying to convince DH we need a goat. I had a few when I was a kid.
