Certainly you can teach a goat anything. They're nearly as smart as dogs if you get the right goat. My last buck (who was my darling baby..) knew how the free lunge, knew his name, would always follow me around ect.

That's so funny you mentioned lunging.
I have been doing that with her this spring, and she picked it up just like any of my horses did.
Really glad to know I am not some "weirdo" for trying such a thing!

It does seem like her attention/patience span when learning new things is a little short, well shorter than a horses would be I guess any way. Is that to be expected with a goat you think?

I do think you can train goats to pretty much the same things you could train a dog. When I was a teenager, one of my dairy goats was cart trained, she would pull a garden wagon around the yard, and another was trained to carry a pack. Neither of these things are unusual and you can order goat packs and harness/carts online.

This is totally unrelated and so off topic, but this thread made me think of it in all it's cuteness:

(Ha,ha,ha, what a cute little ball of fluff!)

Indyhorse, I would have loved to of trained Emmie to drive, unfortunately she is too small. That would have been a lot of fun though.
Some neighbors of ours trained one of their La Manchas to drive, he did pretty darn well.

Maybe I'll get her a pack and she can go hiking with me and Gus, one of my Llamas. She could carry our water and snacks!

Thank you, I think she is a cutie.
Passage huh? LOL!
Don't know if that's ever going to happen.
