What about changing the laws to allow more goats in the city? Done in Seattle through goat justice league. 6 Replies

I think 2 or maybe even up to 7 little goats in a large albuquerque backyard makes sense for those who are interested.  Being vegans, their poop is fantastic fertilizer and odor free.  They eat…Continue

You might try South Mountain Dairy both for bigger goats and for information. Plus it's a gorgeous area for filming. They have a FB page and a webpage

I have two very friendly larger goats, with horns, in a big pasture. Fee free to contact me to check them out (in the North Valley).

Well, I got a post in my inbox about goats in the city limits.  In answer to carolyn who made the post, there is a previous discussion as to the amount of land the city requires to have a goat (or two) in the city limits.  I know a lot of folks live in ALBQ and own goats but most of them have at least 1/2 acre of land they keep their goats on - I live in bosque farms and I have that much with plenty of room for my small herd (currently 5 adults/1 kid) Your shelter will depend on your goats' size.  If you were to get Nigerians (the smallest dairy goats) you really could get away with a couple of small dog houses for the does to go in out of weather.  I have some handbuilt shelters that are small but can house about 5 goats.  I also have a barn with 2 stalls that can comfortably fit 10 adults and babies comfortably.

I know of several folks who have goats for sale.  Some are in milk, some are dams/daughters, adults ready to breed of all different breeds (from Nigerian to saanen) and many folks near the city limits with nice bucks  you can use for breeding so if you want more information, feel free to email me. NMgoatgal@gmail.com

I personally don't have any for sale so you won't get a sales pitch from me - just information.

Hi all,

I am looking for someone trustworthy to house sit during the first week of August.  I need someone who can lovingly care for my goats, alpacas, and other animals (& who can milk my mama-goat twice a day).  Do you have any recommendations?

Thanks!
