I got an e-mail from a friend the other day asking how our Spanish goats were working out. My reply, "After keeping them up for a month and feeding them every few days, to gentle them. We turned them out on the 350 acres and we normally only see 15 - 20 of the 52 we purchased." Yes, this is true. They are scattered all over the ranch. Have any died? I don't know - they are usually in groups of 2 - 10. The smaller groups are like deer, you better look quick or you might miss seeing them. Their black color does not help in finding them.
We did have goat hunt a week after we turned them out - we sent out 3 of our employees and Barry to hike around the property. We think we got a count of 40. The other evening one of our employees said he counted approx. w/ the Kiko herd - YEAH!
So they are here -just where is the question. :) To revisit the question, "How are the Spanish goats working out?" Anyway they want to work out is how they are working...
Watching me from a distance - there were about 7 in this group.
With the springs and creeks and all the forage there is no need for them to come out into the open.
