I am going to house my Appaloosa mare on my property, but because she will be alone and at the advice that I've gotten on this site, I am going to get her a companion animal. Many have mentioned goats, some mini's, and other pigs.
Which are the easiest keep? I'm concerned that the goat will eat more grass than my horse. My paddock area is minimal although many have told me that it's plenty, I still plan to supplement with hay outside.
I'm open to all suggestions. If anyone is around Western New York, Rochester, Batavia, Buffalo area and knows of goats, etc. for sale, please let me know. I cannot say enough thanks you's for your advice and knowledge.
