OOh will say this tho! When we buy horse feed a lot of it is fine to feed goat too but keep an eye on back of feed sacks because some you can't feed to goats, just if you were feeding both the same thing ( we do it works! Saves money too well depending on how many goats)

Only other thing is that if goats have nothing else to do they tend to have a nibble at thier horsey friends tail umm tree branches are usually a good distraction for this! Lol

I'm still liking the research you are doing... and I can see you are very specific and detail oriented, both very good traits, but if you don't mind just a little advice... Give yourself a bit of wiggle room. I too am a very scheduled, detail oriented person... things aren't done right unless I do them myself (which can get incredibly tiresome trust me). Horses have a way of taking the best laid plans and changing them on you. At 3:20, your horse may feel like making you jog around the pasture for a while before he/she decides they feel like being caught causing your schedule to fly out the window.

Depending on how much land you have to work with, you might want to fence off more than an acre. Especially if you're going to have one or more buddies in with the horse. If I had the land to work with here, I'd fence off at least 4 acres and cut that in half to rotate. That would be for one horse, and one small buddy. That way, it would actually give the one area time to recover somewhat. Good Luck!!!

Agree with what's been said about companion animals; for one acre you will need to be poop picking the paddocks. For an area that size, you really have to divide it and rotate areas to maintain any sort of grass at all.
