    We used to board at a place with loose goats - but they were nubian and taller. Bellies and legs were always shed out early as the goats rubbed around the horses and walked back and forth under them.

    Exactly.
    There is only room for one up there, but they don't mind trying for two.

    What a way to get your horses broke.

    For those that want goats to keep with their horses, remember, there is that one morning you go out there and horse's tails have been trimmed artistically by goats, some down to just a nub left.

    Almost makes me want another goat! But I don't know if Fringo would appreciate another one or not, he's been an only goat and ruler of the roost for a while now.

    Maybe Hoover can train his sheep to do that? He just showed me yesterday he's figured out how to untie their gate and go fetch them on his own! Ponies.....

    Goats eat horse tails because they are lacking nutrients and/or proper stimulation.

    I have two ponies with nice long tails and around 200 goats.

    Maybe I'm just lucky?
