Ahhhhh goats. How did I ever survive without them???? They are funny and snuggly and wonderful! We chose Nigerian Dwarfs for their size. I knew that eventually we would milk them, but I didn't need a gallon a day. We have just started milking our first doe after her sweet baby boy went to his new home. As with everything, it has come with a learning curve and much spilt milk. As a huge fan of goat cheese and homemade skin care, I'm willing to persevere until we find our groove.
