I'll bet a shock collar would work, but - IMHO -  an animal (such as this) that constantly and predictably endangers you and your children is not worth taking chances with.  Had the hoof hit your daughter in the eye (instead of her lip), she likely would have lost that eye.

If it were me, I probably would've killed the goat already.

Well since he's a weather he's not worth much unless he's a fiber animal. Best thing to do with him is send him to freezer camp.

WE have a 2 yr old wether than is a pain!  We have tried sitting on him until he is submissive and it just doesn't work anymore.  It worked temporarily at first when we tried it.  Nothing is changing his behavior.  He is dangerous.  He gets up on his back feet and charges.  Once his hoof hit my daughter in the lip and split it open.  I am considering a dog shock collar to fix this behavior.  My daughter is a HUGE animal lover and cares for all the animals, but a few times she has come in crying asking for us to give him to a rescue place because he really is a problem.  I was out helping her recently and the goat just would not leave me alone - usually he is pretty good with me, but I couldn't do anything but watch my back to make sure he wasn't going to hurt me.  Anyone tried a shock collar?  They aren't cheap and I was hoping to find one to rent, but not sure that is possible.  I'm open to solutions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
