     I bought a halter leash combination for sheep and goats for $3.69 from "Home farm & Family", that is a TSC clone if you don't have them in your area. Anyway it slipped on without any effort and Max (the goat) followed me everywhere. I think it is because the halter went on so easily he didn't get nervous or distracted. After that it was all walk, browse, and an occasional  treat. We both enjoyed our excursion through the woods and back.

I have a couple of halters and may try them on a girl that does not like the colar.

I really, really like the halters...makes leading them more comfortable for them and me...it's more natural to them.  Easier to control them when you have that head going in the direction you want, not the neck bent and the head fighting you.

I'm glad you are making such wonderful strides in training your goats.  I look forward to hearing more about it. Smiley
