    Probably not-unless you had a really hefty goat! I wonder if they have anything that's sized for mini horses that would work w/goats. If not, wonder if someone could come up w/something.

    Deb, I thought you had horses. ?? Are you, like Tortoise, keeping just goats these days?

    I have horses, but none that are trained to pull-yet. I was hoping to help tortoise come up w/something she can use for her goats.

    Our future goats are pretty small. But maybe hitch up 2 dwarfs together? I don't know. I'm determined they earn their keep - can you tell?

    I think they do make plows for goats, just not sure if the dwarfs are too small.
