    Hi All

    We have just acquired 2 goats. One is really small (a mini?) and the other A British Alpine, currently in milk. We have had them for 2 weeks and are really enjoying them and the milk! I am glad to have found this forum as I am sure we will need support along the way :)

    Cheers

    Elizabeth

    Hi baringapark! for some reason that name sounds familiar ...

    you must be very close to me. I have just moved from Albury wodonga, back to Wagga Wagga.

    Where did you get your goaties from?

    Thanks for the lovely welcomes :)

    Yes Keren, I am south of Wangaratta. You may know me from ALS?

    The goats came from a friend's son down in Gippsland, but he hadn't had them very long. I do not know their history prior to that. Milk production has dropped off a bit, so I am thinking about milking twice per day, although am worried this may be too much 'work' for Judith? I am also seriously considering obtaining another two does, I am enjoying it so much! :) So far I have made ricotta, yoghurt & ice cream and can't wait to have a go at some other cheeses, and kefir when my grains arrive!

    ALS was another forum I used to frequent - Aussies Living Simply. I also used to sell my pork at the Wodonga Farmers Market. Otherwise I have no idea how we might know each other LOL!
