Hello from Texas, my name is Kassie. I have recently decided to start raising Dairy Goats, I want to use the milk for Soap and also possibly for drinking and bakeing. But I am just learning about them. I live in the country and we have horses so I don't have to worry so much about room and such. What I do want is something that will be easy to raise, that will also have a sweet and gentle disposition. I love the looks of the Nubian. What breeds do you recomend based on what? Also for getting the milk drinkable what needs to be done? Testing ect.? I have read a lot on the board already and really enjoy reading your posts and have learned a lot already. I am going to look at some Nigerian Dwarfs and some Mini Nubians tomorrow. I might possibly even like to show a couple of goats. I had a Boer Goat in the past and loved her. She was very sweet and kept us entertained for hours. We have a foaling barn for our horses, and I plan on letting the Does kid in the barn since it has a barn camera I can watch from the house. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have just purchased two books also and am loving what I am reading about the goats.
