Default What will goats not eat?

Mum rang me with a gardening problem regarding goats.....her soil is dry,
sandy, slightly acid and under gum trees. She also suffers from marauding
goats....her own, but still.....so she's put in a request to all you
gardening gurus for plants that will handle dry conditions that goats will
not eat...she will be very very grateful!! It's sort of dappled shade in
some parts and full sun in others; she likes cottage gardens and already has
lavendar and rosemary growing. Thanks

Goats will eat anything.
They wont eat Electric fenced plants. Mind you it will also surprise
your Mum at times and give her heart quite a Rev/start.

Er is it the goats or is it her....staring stupidly (no offence,
electric or otherwise) I mean. Goats were designed to eat anything.
Anyone keeping goats that will not eat everything, has a defective goat
or mind. Goats go to great lengths to eat the uneatable. Your mother
will become quite smart after having been butted on the bbbut. Goats are
quite tricky. This is why the devil is sometimes seen in the guise of a
goat.
You cannot trust goats. (All this information was taken of the Net and
is ISO 9001 certified.) (Except the bit about) your mother who is
probably in the spell of "charming goats" Snap her out of it before its
too late... (GRIN!) Dont let her even think about donkeys.

Lol we used to eat the young males....very nice meat! Now us kids are all
out, there aren't so many mouths to feed so she just has two milkers; the
bush goat from hell and a saanen....less said there the better. For some
reason you always get a bad tempered goat who's a great milker, or a placid,
slightly silly one who's just ok.

She thinks donkeys are sweet...enough said. Dad has put his foot down on
that one fortunately. She's quite good at keeping them out of the vegie
garden....many years of trial and error....but she'd like a 'flower garden'
out the front. Or any garden. Right now she has lots of rocks, some dead
leaves, sand, aloe vera and lavendar. Oh, and the rosemary.I might just
suggest she gets more of that. I'm going to have a chat to her about natives
too; I'm sure there are quite a few in the bush around her house that they
won't touch, so I think she should try getting her hands on those.

SE Qld, Granite Belt area. So the soil is basically very fine granite. I'm
not sure about local native nurseries but last I recall there weren't many
for some reason, or they were miles out of town.

It seems the goats are in the wrong area. Theres nothing to eat except
you Mum's garden! (grin!) I reckon she may be in a sparsely populated
and vegetated area. Possibly alkaline soil. suggest getting onto this
site for help

As to whats goat resistant, what a question to ask.
Try tin cans? As suggested previously. electrify the garden. Which
reminds me
I once wired a tree with Christmas tree lights, full 240 volts to the
trunk one nice wet day, no trouble with goats, but the tree died.
Shocking.....

Lol you make me laugh.... yes, she is in an open woodland type area, so
not a lot of forage unless you're a roo. Only you can't milk roos. So the
goats get hay, grain etc...thanks for the link, I'll look it up and give her
some names...she seems to think the internet will burn or
something.....thanks for that

Just tell her to cross her index fingers in front when given the info from
the net. It will purify it.
