When I had a couple goats 2 years ago, they were eventually free range. We started the summer tying them out to eat brush and putting them into a makeshift stall in our barn at night. By midsummer, they were breaking out of their stall in the morning, running loose all day, and putting themselves back in at night.I will tell you about my goats...but , it is NOT the norm in any way...these are pet goats that I treat like Babies...they are no longer always in their fencing...yes, I will admit it. I know, I know. Many of you are ready to admonish me for all the things that could go wrong. This is only when we are with them..but..they have learned to free range.
These were NOT pet goats and were almost impossible to catch, so we just rolled with it until winter, then sold them. It was kind of fun having a couple goats running around all the time, but it’s probably a miracle they didn’t get killed by predators.
