The Hybrid is certainly not large enough for 3 dogs and two goats so we are getting a truck...probably a 94 F150 from my sister to be used when transporting the goats. We Travel about 3 weeks a year, and while we could likely find someone willing to look after them for 2 of the trips we would likely need to take them with us to Dallas for a week at Christmas. We should be able to take them out and let them run around in David's aunt's chain link fence yard twice a day or walk them several times a day at my Dad's without issues from the neighbors and such. Would it be ok for them to stay in the big dog crates at night outside in the yard or on the porch or should we really invest in a livestock trailer for this once a year trip? I have figured out an easy way to keep grain for a week without it getting wet but the hay i am not so sure any suggestions?
