Goats with Totes - Now Available for Hire

Gotes with Totes - Available for Hire!

If you have to breed milk goats every year to keep them milking, what do you do with all those baby goats? Around 1990, all of our friends and acquaintances had all the pet goats they could possibly need. We were not ready to make goat sausage when we read an article in Sierra Magazine about back packing with goats. John Mionczynski worked in Wyoming with the task of observing and recording a band of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. He had a good deal of equipment to carry into the high mountains, including a big radio receiver to follow the radio collared sheep. He tried horses and then mules to follow the sheep into the high wild terrain. He could not get near the area where the sheep lived. Stuck with this dilemma, he trained his pet wether (castrated male goat) to wear a modified mule cross buck and off into the rugged slippery upper reaches they went; the goat’s presence did not alarm the wild sheep. He ultimately wrote a book called The Pack Goat and is considered the father of American goat packing.
