    Hey ya'll! Glad to have found this website! This is my first year to own goats so i'm sure i will have plenty of questions! My name is Laura Boaz and i have a wonderful husband, 5 children, 6 dairy goats,5 dogs and several rogue chickens lol. I must admit the goat lover's bug bit me and it seems i just cant get enough info about them! Cant wait to talk goats with you! :laugh: cute smileys btw!

    I have an interesting mix lol. I have a grade lamancha buck, a purebred Nubian buck, an Alpine wether, an Alpine doe, an oberhasli cross doe and a nubian cross doe. they are all pure-ly loved lol! My oberhasli is already a good milker. It was her first freshening this last spring and she was milking up to four quarts a day! i was pretty proud of that seeing that my Alpine was only milking a few cups...it was her first freshening as well.
