Question about keeping a companion goat
I currently have just one horse, and so have gotten a companion goat for him. They get along very well and are buddies. Aside from another horse, Reuben (the horse) is in a very good companion situation.
Problem: When I take the horse off property, I have to lock the goat up and she becomes frantic and remains that way the entire time we are gone.
Question: Does anyone know if getting a second goat for these times when I take the horse off property (which will only increase with training) would take away from the companion situation with the horse (since the goats would have each other). Also, the goat is currently able to come and go from the paddock and so is actually free, BUT she does not leave sight of the horse, who is contained of course. Would getting a second goat make the risk of them wandering off the property higher?
Or make the goat suck it up?
