Goats are generally a hardy animal when living in South Florida, but they still need to be properly cared for, including proper feed, hoof care and parasite control. Goats do not graze like sheep, they are browsers. Goats prefer weeds, tree bark, tree leaves, and things of that nature. Goats feet are very susceptible to hoof rot so they need to have ways to keep their hooves dry. Goats and sheep can not be fed the same way. Goats and sheep have different nutritional needs.
Goats are very smart and easily trained. They can also seem to have a sense of humor and be very amusing to watch. Goats love to climb things and play head butting games with each other. Goats can become very tame and can enjoy interacting with their humans.
