If you have ever wondered how many goats you are worth use this online calculator to figure it out.

9 goats.

Well - seems like my price has gone way down as I get older! Living overseas, my parents were once offered an undisclosed number of goats and camels to betroth me to the oldest son of the camel rental guy (a wealthy man with four wives and many children) who rented us the camels to visit the pyramids in Egypt. I was 7 at the time. I was to come back when I was 13 for the wedding.

Years later, when I was lifeguarding at the Hilton hotel in Maseru, Lesotho - a 5 star hotel with a casino - one of my friends who was the lead slots machine mechanic got drunk and decided to ask his buddies how many cows they would offer for me. That got a little too "real"... Talk about feeling like livestock!

well....I got 9 goats also. and the most ever offered for me was from the good old boys who ran across our cabin 'coon hunting' and drunk one night, they offered a six pack of beer and a fifth of whiskey but they weren't looking for a long term commitment. And for what it's worth, at the time we had 27 goats.

Permies seem to be more goat-worthy than other types. Not sure if that's a compliment or not but I'm going to think of it as one.

I thought maybe it was going to say 9 goats no matter what so after getting 9 the first time with fairly honest answers I tried again at opposites...and got 7 goats. So,there's the scientific proof that it is an accurate test:)

I did the test as a dude too...and was still a 9-goater.

@Judith - well done on the scientific proof!

At least 25 goats by math. I have 12 hair sheep and two mini donkeys. A hair sheep has to be worth at least two of those evil escape artists that like them pee themselves that you all are in love with. I rate donkeys at a 1/4 of goat because they eat to darn much.
J/k I think goats are pretty cool critters. I just don't have the time patience to become a master fence builder.

I got halfway through the test
and managed to wipe the results which otherwise proved me to be incredible.
actually I think it was somewhere around
'I drink myself unconscious every night' (or something) that I lashed out.
Anyway, I staggered semi-conscioius toward the goats,
but I never made it
