Default Goat and Rabbit Meat

I'm putting together my first order with some new meats. I'm looking to order some goat and rabbit meat. I have questions as usual though.

On the goat, I can get boneless ground or ground with bone. The pricing isn't an issue, but it is slightly more expensive for the boneless. I don't know how course it is or big the bone pieces are, but I'll be asking before I order. My question is, would you go with boneless or with bone? I'm thinking with bone because it would be another bone source, even though it's already ground. What do you think?

On the rabbit, they only offer that ground as well. All options contain fur, but no intestines. They offer a plain rabbit and then offer a few 50%/50% mixes with rabbit and duck, lamb, beef, and chicken. Since this is going to be a new protein I'm going to get just rabbit meat, but once they can have it in their rotation I may alternate with the blends. My question is on the fur. Do they typically ground it with fur? I'm sure the fur won't do any harm, but will it do any good?
Mandy, loving mom to...

I give the boys goat quite often as it is one of the cheaper meats available for us. I get it whole though (not ground)- it is the back ''hump'' of the goat the we buy (so it is boneless). I either have the butcher cut it into chunks or i cut it at home my self- it is actually pretty soft meat and easy to cut. I try to stay away from ground meats as i have read on here that they are more prone to bacteria. Although if i want something easy i will give them ground beef now and again. If it did have bone in it I am not sure if it would be too dense for them to eat (unless it was ground).
I am not sure about about the rabbit.. it is too expensive here. Sorry on that one!
