go for a walk, find a goat!!!!

Post Posted: Sat Feb 24, 2007 1:16 am

10 months on and having chased the dream, i'm now living it, finding life so much more fulfilling.
living in the campo at bottom of alh. el grande and taking the dog for a walk always turns up something,! yesterday walking along the dog jumped up to the side of a deep concrete pit and inside was a baby goat,!!! so i came home got a rope went back and yanked it out by the neck! problem is what do i do now its sooooooooo cute and i'm bottle feeding it but i don't think i can keep it, i do have quite a big garden but thats not the point. its only as big as my cat but how much bigger will it get? help i need some good sound reasoning on what i should do, there is a goatman near here should i give it to him, (its probably his) or will its mum reject it, help!!!!!!!! even the lobster!!!!!!!! i found in my garden wasn't this much of a problem, look forward to your advice

I think I'd ask the locals if they know anyone whos lost a goat, as for sure it belongs to someone who'll be quite upset at losing it

yeah, it probably is the goat herders! but where it was found the baby goat couldn't possibly have got on to the pipework by itself, some people have said that the goatherder probably didn't want it and put it there! evidently you can't milk a goat till after its had a baby.
the baby still has a dried up umbilical cord attached!
i suppose it seems easy to think that someone might be missing it but quite honestly it could not have got in the pipehole thing by itself, and in the countryside here its not unusual to find boxes and bags of kittenss and puppies, i've been told by someone who knows the goatman that he wouldn't hand feed it if its mother doesn't but would probably have it when it got bigger!!!
