Would this be too crowded:
1 calf (to be sold in the fall)
3 goats (pygmies)
I've always heard the 1 horse per acre rule, but I'm not sure how a young cow (2 weeks old until about 8 months old & bottle fed in the beginning) would factor in, and then there's the goats (small, browsers).
The pasture is nice and thick in the summer (fescue grass I think) and there's bushes and trees for the goats. Hay & grain are given as needed.
In the fall, the calf will be sold and a separate goat pasture will be fenced leaving the 3 horses on 3 acres.
Would that arrangement last for about 6 months or would it ruin the grass?
