In my area, goat meat seems to be more common in Mexican and Asian households. I don't know many white folks that eat it.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

My grandpa has Filipino friends who infrequently bought goats off us for eating. They'd usually take the ornery ones that were head butting people and causing problems, our goat herd was mostly for farm aesthetics anyway.

I don't think I even need to comment on the stud in this post, everyone's said it.

^^ Thank you!! My point exactly, but I was trying to be "PC" about it. That would explain it being more common in NOVA, than here is a farming area of NY state. I would have NO clue where to get it, other than an asian market perhaps, and I do not know how to say "goat" in any other languages. (besides I will NOT be looking for it when I go home to Va, thanks, tho)

My guess would be that the US consumption numbers could be linked to the % of population who are Asian, Middle Eastern and Mexican, along with, I would guess, some of the African and island groups.
Perhaps I eat in the wrong restaurants, but have never seen it on a menu, unlike Bison, Ostrich and several others.

In my travels to Europe I have never seen it either-but have had all of Mother goose' other characters all in one meal (close, anyway)! (Antelope, duck, goose liver, Rabbit, quail eggs, and several others that escape me now....my DH just kept shoving his onto my plate too....).BUT NO GOAT!

I do not believe that primarily white, anglo, christians find it a food of choice. Sort of like some places they eat horse......

Just my opinion.....back on topic.....waiting for OP to finish the fences....lol

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

My husband has a friend at work that is African. He buys goats for meat. He got kicked off someone's property because he went to buy some goats off them and when he got there he tied their legs together and put them in potato sacks and trash bags and threw them in the back of his van. The people gave him his money back and told him to leave.....

Don't hate me! I haven't tried goat...yet. We have some goats now, though they are does and will be making babies. I'm sure that we will either eat or sell the babies. We eat deer, don't see that it would be much different eating a goat...

His proportions just aren't all that great to use him as a breeding horse. I don't want to go into detail tearing your horse down to explain exactly, but there is no reason to keep this disproportionate horse who might have a great future as a riding horse a stallion when there are many BEAUTIFUL, confirmationally correct horses out there at stud. He is very cute, but cute does not mean breeding material.

Edit: Okay, I looked at the pictures some more... and I can't help it. I want to say, first... other than seeing he looks disproportionate, the pictures aren't great to assessing exact confirmation. He does, however, look a bit over in the knees and cow-hocked. Perhaps it is the angles, but both depict this :( I reitterate, very cute, though!

Hmmm...I had wondered why this thread had taken off! ::shocked::

I would geld him. Ofcourse. I geld anything. I probably would have gelded Impressive himself. Even in my wildest dreams I wouldn't have the facility to care for and keep a stallion. I have no interest in breeding, I leave that to the experts. And babies? Pssht...you can keep those babies. Ill keep the ones I can do something with!

As far as the Impressive goes, my last horse was heavily Impressive bred but skipped out on all the down falls...His feet were as big as dinner plates, he had great bone and most importantly...he was N/N. I am not sure if it was just him or the breeding but my boy sure could produce muscle. He went from quite fat and big to HUGE with muscles with very little work. If I wanted, I probably could have had him halter show ready in weeks. He grew muslce unnaturally fast. And ofcourse, since I love him...heres a pic! Impressive up and down on this boy.

Before(not ridden for a year) and After (ridden 2-3 times a week)....*hands the reins to the thread back over* here ya go!

I'd go get the scissors and go snip those suckers off, if it were me. I don't mean to be rude, and most everybody before me has covered the reasons for gelding him very well.

Also, if you don't believe you stallions' stud fees should be over $200, what is the point of keeping them studs? The price within itself tells a lot about the quality of what you are getting.

I'm going to close this thread only because it seems that all the advise that can be given, has been given. Thanks to everyone for participating.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
