I have to go to the pumpkin farm this weekend for our annual slog through the wet muddy ground to buy a $30 pumpkin, but one of the things I always look forward to is getting a few handfuls of feed and feeding the goats at the petting zoo and I started thinking how cool it would be to have my own goat. Just out of idle curiosity, how much does a live goat usually go for? I don’t need anything fancy, no exotic fainting goats or anything, just your standard billy goat. Yes, I’d want a guy one with cool twisty horns too, if that increases the price.
Then as an aside, what does goat upkeep usually run? Basically I’m just wondering if I could afford to have one. Note: I live in a townhouse in the middle of suburbia so it’s not going to happen anyway.
