yeah I thought about her horns. The owner insisted it wouldn't be a problem because nannys don't tend to use their horns in defense. And they don't butt. Is there any way to get them filed down humanely just to get the ends blunted a bit more?
I've heard that the tin can story is a myth. I looked online at several reputable goat breeders in the area and they said that contrary to popular belief, goats do not eat cans. We will see if she will eat the weeds. If not, we have plenty of good grass for her to go around.
I don't want to peg her in a spot because I only have one goat. She might get frantic and hurt herself if she isn't around another animal. My horses have been exposed to goats before so I'm not worried about her safety, i'm more worried about my horse's safety around her.
thanks for the help... any other suggestions would be very much appreciated!
ps. Just after I rode my horse today, I went into the stall where she is being kept and stayed there for about an hour and a half. I got within three feet of her and she has stopped shaking!
