Trail riding with goats?
This whole Coronavirus isolation thing has given my mind a lot of time to wander and ponder increasingly random topics.
This time my mind wandered to an old friend who lived on a mountain and had a goat. That short, fat, old little Nigerian Dwarf would effortlessly scale steep rock formations while we walked the trails. He never needed so much as a halter, just followed us wherever we went.
It got me thinking about how many people use goats as pack animals and companions for hikes. The huge benefits being they follow without being led, can bravely traverse the worst of terrain, and of course, can carry things.
However, I have a harder time finding information about horse people bringing goats along on their trail rides. Does anyone ever bring along goats?
