Homestead Critters: Goats

One of the things I loved, and now miss, most about homesteading is all the adorable critters you can include in your life!  Naturally the babies are the ones everyone “ooohs and aaahs” about, but they are enjoyable at all ages.  Beyond the warm fuzzies I get with animals of all sorts, their usefulness can be really invaluable.  Goats, for example, can provide lawn / pasture mowing services in addition to their potential for milk, meat and cheese.  Just be certain to have designated places for them to climb and sturdy fences to keep them contained.
