i've had goats in the past but never these. i recently decided to add a few goats to the farm, more for pets than anything else. there is a breeder not far from me who has several youngsters for sale.
i have 3 great danes. they are all very gentle. however, they are also extremely playful. until recently, i had 2 miniature horses. the dogs and horses played tag constantly, horses INside the fence, dogs running up and down OUTside. most often, the little horses started these games of tag and their enjoyment was obvious. the dogs were NEVER allowed inside the dry lot with the horses.
my question is this...i know these goats "faint" due to being startled. would they get used to the dogs running and barking or would this sort of thing be too stressful for them?
i don't want it to sound like i want to put little goats out there for my dogs to terrorize, quite the contrary. i know my dogs would never hurt them...i just don't know if it would be too much for the goats.
