urgent help needed!

Finn, my goat, needs a place to be boarded at while I get ready to move. His current foster home just isn't set up for a goat. He's been jumping over the alpaca fences and breaking into the chicken coop. He needs a place around here to couch surf just until I can get him back—which is as soon as I can set up an electic fence at my new place. May 1st should be the very latest he'd have to stay with you, and I will of course pay for the food, space, whatever it takes.

If you live around southern Vermont and have space for a goat, please email me at jenna@itsafarwalk.com

You could always bring him out to washington state to stay at my house. Romeo the dog would love it!!!

Too Far? Damn. Nevermind

I was about to say the same thing, about Alaska!

Well if it gets really hard to find someone I would be willing to meet you half way somewhere from Ohio. I have a free stall and two other goats to keep him company. But I do hope that you can find someone a lot close to you for your sake.

What is the worst thing that could happen if you brought him back to the cabin? You are getting kicked out anyway...

By the time your landlord could do anything about it, you'd be moved out anyway.

J.C. If I do that he'll be in a 6x8ft run alone. The sheep pen isn't goat proof so he'd be alone all day until he got a walk at night. He'd probably cry and holler and my neighbor would call animal control for goat-abuse or something. I think I have a lead in upstate NY. Fingers are crossed.

We're totally not set up for Goats, or I'd offer to help. Generally the cattle stay where we put them. Good luck with your little Houdini!

If you can't find accommodations, bring him back to the cabin. Maybe you can put the sheep on the Finn watch. Each day put a different sheep in the run with him.

Jenna, I had the same thought as j.c.-bring him back to your farm. Let the landlord know so it will not seem backhanded and let it be. It seems to me it would be best for Finn and you. Good luck!

Could you purchase some 6 ft wire guage fencing and some green t posts to expand the pen for him? Its temp fencing and you will find a purpose for it at your new place for sure.

Hell, if Colorado wasn't so far away from you, I would take the chance of being scolded by my local covenant enforcers (whoever they are). I'm sure you'll find a solution - wish I could be of some help.
