Goats. I could almost write a book about all the experiences I've had since owning goats. Like the time our buck found his way into a school, or the time I had to stuff one in the back seat and drive around looking for the rest of the herd. So, why goats? I decided on goats as they are smaller, and "easier" to handle than a cow. When I started this adventure I'd never milked anything, and knew I could handle goats daily without assistance. Goat milk, contrary to popular belief, is yummy and delicious. Goat milk is delicate, which is why goat milk from the store tastes like hoof. Goat milk is naturally homogenized, so the cream is mixed in with the milk. It's also easier for people to digest. Our goats have access to 80 acres of pasture. Of course they prefer visiting the neighboring cemetery. They are bred once a year, usually in the fall. They kid in the early part of the year, usually February and March. I allow every doe to raise a kid, and we practice milk sharing.
