Goats lend horn with loads on Wyoming mountain guide trips

They also can be helpful allies in a tight spot. Zach Dorr can attest to that fact, the Gillette News Record reports. He took his wife on her first elk hunting trip about two years ago and brought along the goats.

Pack goats contain multitudes. At any number of recent events in town, most recently the WyoGives block party at Big Lost Meadery, people could walk up to a small transportable pen set up by the Dorrs and pet the affectionate and attention-seeking goats like they were at a petting zoo. The quirky animals are crowd-pleasers. They’re a curiosity, a conversation starter and people can’t seem to help themselves. “A cow called a couple of times, and a black bear comes running,” Zach said. “I mean, a big, male black bear.”

The four goats he’d brought along on the trip got defensive of their humans. “They saw that bear coming and they just made this half-circle in between (us and the bear),” Zach said. “They get really stiff, and they put their heads really high. They tuck their chins so their horns get up high.”

The goats held firm. “The bear just kept coming and coming and coming, and he got about 20 yards away. They started straight-leg walking, like marching, at him, trying to let him know,” Zach said. “Finally, I say, ‘Hey bear!’ It kind of stops, stutters and looks up and sees those goats power-walking at him, and he’s like, ‘What the heck?!’ And he takes off running.” Now the Dorrs are offering those gruff-when-needed goats to customers who may like to experience not only the wonders of nature, but the companionship and entertainment of pack goats. The men, both experienced outdoorsmen, are starting a new guide service called Big Horn Mountain Pack Goats where they’ll lead people into the mountains and let the goats do all of the heavy lifting. It will not only make the wilderness more accessible for the non-outdoorsy, it also provides a one-of-a-kind experience with highly individualistic animals.

A really funny, ragtag herd There’s Steve who gets a bum rap for being the lazy one. Zig is kind of the trail boss. And his twin brother Zag, who was known as the barnyard bully for a while but has mellowed with age.
