Just a simple question.
 
I wanted to get a mini and maybe goats. i know the goats can deal with this land but can the minis? I live on a flat part in the woods, but besides where my house and driveway is its kind of a hill. not steep, you can walk down it, but there is brush, trees and a stream in there. Can a mini be kept in this kind of land?
We will build a stable and everything to keep it in, when weather gets bad, but i didnt know if hills were bad for it.
thank you for your help!

Hi Marisa! :wave:

I also live up in the mountains, and we do not have much in the way of flat ground ourselves.
I have riding horses, Llamas, a goat, as well as miniature horses, and they all do just fine. So I would not let that keep you from having them. :wink:

I don't have any good pics to show the lay of the land, but you might get some idea from this one, this is the minis in their paddock area.....

And this is their barn, again not the best angle, but you get the idea.
