I am wondering what is necessary and helpful to protect these little goats from predators. We have 2 young wethers- just picked them up today. We do not have a dog. They have a 4 foot fence around their house. Do we need to have the area lit up all night? Can we put a gate/door on the house and keep them in there at night. We have a 2 year old and do not want to get an electric fence. We want to protect out little guys and are open to ideas. We looking for budget freindly solutions, since my husband went a bit over board on their house and fence.
Thanks in advance for your help.
