As to castration.... we would castrate the boys at about a month of age. We would cut out the testicles. I find the cutting method causes less pain, and you are over and done. Of course... way more scrotal sack on a more mature goat. It can still be done though. There are many you tube videos on the subject.

That blue eye in my avatar belonged to Joe's Tuff Bars, the love of my life and best buddy. My husband bought him for me as a surprise right after we were married. Snowy white, pink skinned, the only pigment on him was his eyes. Calm, gently, unflappable, he was my baby. Had to put him down August 18, 2020 and I grieved so hard that I've never been able to write his story. He was 32 years old.

Because I will be selling the farm and moving to a house on 2 acres that my son has, I sold my horses. I found them very good homes, but I sure miss them. I would have never given up Joe.

I'll take my time, look around and find where I want to be. Then you can bet I'll get another horse or two. I love Tennessee Walkers, I've had several and they are at the top of my list.
This is my Gypsy. 1st pic- taken about a week b4 she passed. 2nd- The best picture I've ever taken of her. 3rd- Just a picture I love! 4th- Taken of my first ride on her.

I'll look into that. I'd love to wether them to be able to keep them as pasture mates. They all get along very well!
