Wethers are male goats that have been neutered. They have very sweet temperaments, playful and fun-loving. They pretty much never grow out of the baby stage.
Wethers can be used for many purposes. They can be companion animals, or pets. They can clear brush and eat weeds. They can pull carts (and other harnessing jobs like old fashioned plowing) and go packing.
Care of wethers is comparatively easy. There is no need to worry about them starving themselves in rut, and they don't need lots of extra care and attention because of pregnancy, kidding, and milking.
See all these cute li'l wethers?
We are currently looking for forever homes for them, so if you want or know someone else who wants a wether or two, email me!
We are a family of eight living on twenty-two acres of land in North Carolina. We girls like to write about the times on the farm, and its a fun thing to do as there is alway something happening on the homestead!
