    I think James Scott used to have one, would jump on the bonnet of his car.

    What a fantastic nuggety little animal, a great wee friend for life.

    Send Ken Tustin an email, he will know what to feed it, and how to keep it off your roof !

    Don't know anything about raising them, but I just wanted to join in with one that we found. He was nicely tucked up in a tussock when we found him. Took his pic and left him to it. Cute little guy.

    We struck his Mum around the corner, and she trotted off back to him, whistling at us as she went.

    I understand that one of the pitfalls of having one as a pet is that they run up and down the mantle piece (if you have one) knocking the china all over the place.

    Not trying to piss on your parade as I'd love one myself, but I think there are legalities to taking one outside of the zone?

    Just remember to look after your goat. And make sure the kids know it's a goat, wouldn't want to be carting a tahr around, but goats are everywhere so you should be right.

    It still looks really young hamstring so could probably benefit from some Anlamb for a while yet.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
