I just received my February 08 copy of Down East magazine today. And one of the cover stories is HOW TO COOK A GOAT

The inside story... begins, including "Lately it seems that goats --as well as their cheese, milk, and even meat (chevon) -- are everywhere ..." referring to goat raising in Maine.

The magazine has a great spread of photos of the appealing critters and their shelters and milking. Thankfully none of "processing" but you get the picture. There are less photos in the online edition.

I like chevon. And unlike pigs and larger meat-beasts, I find that they are easy to (how do I put this delicately?) turn into meat from beasts. I have never personally owned a firearm (no objections to them, just never owned one...) but have put up lots of good goat meat, and one freezer full of "cheap sheep"... an old ewe that fed us one year when things were lean. The goats were easier...

Wondering if I still have "the touch"...

Goats and horses are routinely combined.

One of our goats recently went to go live with a horse in exchange for some vet help. The goat is serving as a companion for a horse.

I more routinely see goats and horses mixed, under the thinking that the horses will protect the goats.

In Maryland there is an active horse racing industry. And it is very common for goats to be stabled with the horses who enjoy them as companions. Same with Baltimore's "arabers" who sell fruit and vegetables from horse drawn wagons in the city. I've seen some of their stables with goats there. Nice to have a friend if you're a horse or a goat

At the wild animal park out here they keep a dog companion with the Cheetah when it is out with the public and they have successfully paired a mastif puppy with an orphaned lion cub. The cheetah's dog companion is very mellow and its calm presence is reassuring to the cheetah. The lion and the mastiff were craddle buddies but had to be seperated as the cub grew. The rough housing got ....Too Rough.
