As a kid I commuted by dog cart/sled. And the power belts for goats to
walk on, to power tools, are listed for goats or dogs.
Course we have fiber goats now and it is hard to eat someone you've
brushed and milked. (the sheep don't require brushing.) You do what
works when you need to. When I trained packing goats I only used lamb
for personal grass-meat. But goats, like llamas, would be a way to eat
multiflora rose and poison ivy from scraggy hill area if that was our
available food source. It is a part of living with an omnivore and they
all should keep a careful eye on me as I do the bears at end property
who can see me as a bean/chicken/sheep compactor.
