Goats are good company.

Just spent 3 days visiting friends at Hazelcombe Farm in Totness Valley near Mudgee. They have 2 young Saanen goats, Gabrielle and Genvierre who are the friendliest Goats I have ever met. They hung out with me while I stripped some bark off some felled trees to be used to build a big shed. Goats like to eat bark off trees, here they had it on a platter!

I am almost convinced goats are the way to go for my block. If raised from quite young and given enough food then tall fences are not so necessary. These girls were kept in paddocks with regular height fencing and they were happy to just hang out.
