Why camp with a goat? Goats are sure-footed which means they’re less likely to fall down and hurt themselves. They also make great hiking companions because they can carry their own food and supplies in their backpack.
Not to mention, they’re adorable and make great cuddle buddies at night. So whether you’re looking for a new hiking buddy or just want a unique camping experience, here’s how you can take your goat camping.
Before you hit the trail, there are a few things you need to do in order to prep your goat.
First, you need to get them used to wearing a backpack. Start by putting it on them for short periods of time around the house and gradually increase the amount of time they wear it.
Next, start training them on basic commands such as “sit”, “stay”, and “come”. This will come in handy when you’re out on the trail and need them to listen to you.
Finally, make sure their hooves are in good condition so that they can handle different types of terrain. You don’t want them to get hurt while you’re out exploring.
On the day of your hike, wake up early so that you can get an early start. The last thing you want is for your goat to be tired halfway through the hike.
Once you’re all packed up and ready to go, put their backpack on your goat and hit the trail.
Go at your own pace and take breaks when you need to. The key is to have fun and enjoy the experience.
If this is your first time hiking with a goat, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
First, goats like to eat so be sure to keep an eye on them so that they don’t eat something they shouldn’t.
Second, they're curious creatures so they may wander off if you relieve them of their backpack.
And lastly, they may not be too fond of water so don't expect them to cross any rivers or streams without some coaxing.
Camping with a goat is a fun and unique way to experience the outdoors. Just be sure to do your research before you go so that you and your goat are prepared for the adventure ahead.
With a little bit of planning and preparation, you're sure to have a fun-filled trip that's full of new memories (and maybe even some cute pictures).
