Okay...how crazy would I be, on a scale of 1 to 10--one being "never had a cat or goat in my life" sane, and 10 being "I let the critters drive my car" bonkers--how crazy would I be, to want to have a working goat dairy that was my income? Every time I walk away from milking my little goat, for the past 2 weeks, I think to myself that I would just be as happy as I could be if this were my new "life". My major problem is that my husband has caught my "goat dairy dreams" and isn't keeping me in reality! He would happily quit his job (he is a chef) and make cheeses all day... Reality check, anyone? We only have a 5 acre farm! How many goats does it take to keep a working dairy to support a small family?
