Boer Goats

They will also eat everything in sight. 😀 I’ve never eaten a Boer goat I’ve liked (lived in Southern Africa for 3 years…) but then again most people don’t really feed the goats over there – just let them graze. They will eat anything and with Botswana being mostly a desert most of the goat I ate tasted like plastic bags. 😮

They are pretty cool though, very smart and one of the few goats that climb trees. I can’t tell you how many times I was the butt of the joke when some little kid would come running up and beg me to get their goat out of the tree. So I’d climb up this acacia THORN tree and fetch down a baby goat that could get down much better on it’s own, I found out later. I’m sure they had many laughs at my expense over those goats. :p
