goats are wonderful animals!!
 
we once had two (Lloyd and Princess)strictly as pets...well...they were supposed to be lawnmowers and weed eaters...but they didn't like to eat the stuff we really wanted to get rid of...they didn't like grass at all and preferred spruce trees , rose bushes, the neighbours newly planted apple trees etc.
 
they were very much like Mary describes...very smart and VERY people friendly...whenever i went anywhere on the property i was accompanied by two kids (the human type Lol)...two dogs...a cat and two goats...they were very indignant that THEY weren't allowed in the house with everyone else and would peer in our windows hoping we would change our minds...
 
they were always very excited to see and be with us...and loved to play with the other animals...Lloyd and Tiger (our cat) had a special relationship... when Lloyd had his head down grazing Tiger would jump on it and bounce off and then the two of them would get up on their hind legs and do what we used to call "the goat dance" lol
 
we had to keep them tied to keep them out of trouble and because they were so good at pulling they heads out of their tether and escaping we had to resort to using slip knots to prevent them from doing that....unfortunately they also had a habit of winding themselves around trees until they had wrapped themselves so tightly that they were strangling themselves! ...but the good thing was if one was in trouble the other one would sound the alarm...and someone would come running to save it!...(a person visiting my neighbour once came running because he thought a child had fallen into a well or something !)....there was no mistaking that they were screaming for help!
 
i couldn't kill an animal for food either ...but i would like to live where i could have milk goats and a few chickens...(we live in the village limits so they are not allowed).....having animals around just makes me smile... (except when they are being a pain in the neck! lol)...we had chickens once that laid the biggest eggs i ever saw!...but the eggs themselves i couldn't eat...they were too rich or something and didn't sit well in my stomach...and it was years before i could eat eggs again ...but i loved having them around

Eggs.  Yum.
I've always wanted a horse.

That's the only thing left that I
dreamed of as a kid that I have
not yet accomplished in my life.

We have bumper bar stickers in Australia saying,

"poverty is owning a horse"


Now, I wonder why they have those?

It's okay.  A horse is worth it. 
I love riding.  I used to go with
my ex & it was like 100 bucks an hour
to rent them.  Once I went horseback
riding in the desert in AZ.  That was amazing.
It's one of my fave things to do.

Both my grandparents owned and raced, champion race horses and trotters/pacers.
