i think he will mind them, and if he doesn't, I'll deal with it. but I want to be hiking in the mountains of Vermont and New York this fall with my goat and my fiddle. He's been gone too long.

If Finn doesn't respect the fences, you can run a couple strands of electric inside the field fence. If you find you need to go that route, be sure to get a charger that's strong enough for goats. They have an amazing ability to withstand a good shock and are often willing to take a hit just to get to the other side. My sister has some stories about that.

I think finn will be excited to be back and I know you must be really happy, its tough to be separate from your animals.

Congratulations, Jenna. It must be a relief to you.

Llamas are supposed to make good guard animals, although I'm not sure their fur is good for wool. I know alpaca fur is, but I don't know if they make good guard animals.

It's probably the height of their eyes; they can see further away...

I bookmarked your site and am enjoying it much. One question: how did you arrange the archive in the opposite order to what it is normally. I love it and wish to reverse order mine too

I've owned goats for 20 years and have found that the 16 foot long, 52" high, cattle panels work the best. They can't work under it and it is generally tall enough they don't go over.
Good luck with Finn!

I kept goats for several years, and was continuously amazed by how high they could jump, and ingenious they were in their escapes. I watched one of my goats mount an embankment that was 10 feet away from a fence -- he backed up as far as he could then ran like crazy and cleared the fence, easily leaping the expanse. Only thing that ever really worked was an electric fence at both knee and chest height.
