Hello! This website looks like a great resource and I look forward to reading/absorbing/asking as much as I can. I'm brand spanking new to goats, and actually don't have any of my own yet. I live on a shared acre in Mendocino county in California, and my first step will be convincing my landlady that having a dairy goat would be a really beneficial thing both for her land as well as for food! Then we'd need to figure out a suitable shelter and fencing situation, as she's got really rustic wooden fencing around the property that can't even keep in our coonhound I really want to make my dream of having a dairy goat come true (we inherited this amazing organic vegetable garden and would love to become as self sustaining as possible), so I welcome all suggestions for making this a reality! i'm already looking into finding some local goat mentors.
