    Five of our six childen, along with my husband, cannot tolerate cow's milk, so a few years ago a local farmer introduced us to fresh goat's milk. We loved it!

    One month ago, after years of reading, planning and praying of having goats to supply milk for our family, our dream was realized. We bought our first goats, a Nigerian dwarf doe and her now one month old buckling! We will be adding at least two more goats to our small herd next week.

    We also have 2 German shepherds, a beagle and a dwarf rabbit. My husband's obsession is his flock of 50 chickens.

    Welcome to the goat spot :wave: So glad you joined us.

    i have to say I am really happy to hear that you did a lot of research before you jumped in.

    I will say and I am sure most everyone her will say the same thing. You will be so hooked on the goats, before you know it you will be having several of them.

    as I am sure you are aware, how about some pictures :love:
