I have picked up, and looked at, the banders and bands while at the feed store. My 17 y/o is my usual goat helper and he's big and strong so he would hold them for me. I just wish there was some way to ensure that every single one would be treated humanely, no matter what they go for, but I know that's not possible. You can just be careful and hope.

I figure since the majority of my milk will come from Eliza (my nubian mix girl) it will be what we drink, make smoothies, etc. but if Anabelle (the boer mix) has really creamy, fattier, milk, that will probably go for my coffee. I am excited just thinking about it! I am planning to try the separating at night, once a day milking when I start. If I get doe kids I can try to rotate breeding for year round milk when they get big enough. Since mine are both potential year round breeders I hope that happens.

That's funny because my mother wants pygmies because she wants tiny little 'easier' goats. I told her if all boers are like Anabelle she might want to consider that but she's not having it! Lol She may end up with her hands full! Lol
