Oh, no. Another triple whopper would be GREAT... LOL! Just kidding. I want goats! Trinity, that is about all I know, too! BUT, one is pregnant and the Nubian should produce about a gallon a day, so I am ecstatic to say the least!

They are all cute! All goats are addicting, i think toggs have great personalities and nubians have those ears, but my limited experience with them is that they are "needy". -- ma,ma,maah, mom,mommy maah. ANYWAY YOU'LL BE HAVING ALOT OF FUN, I WISH YOU LOTS OF LUCK!!

Wow you lucky bum! Can't wait until we've settled in the new house and my mom starts working...I'll be buying as many goats 50 acres can hold :cool:
And lol! I've heard that Toggs have...stronger tasting milk than other goats. I'm not sure if it's true, it may be due to some peoples improper handling, but I can tell you one thing, their swiss markings are the best!

The Togg taste thing is limited to a few certain bloodlines, not an entire breed issue.

Toggs are very pretty, good producers and come in some very nice shades of brown.

GAH! We aren't getting them... BUT we are still getting A dairy goat. We are looking at one who is an Alpine/Nubian cross producing 1 1/2 gallons a day as an FF. She is 6 years old and had a single. She used to be a therapy goat. :)

We are most likely getting two goats. One Obie and an Nupine. :D One milks a gallon, the other a gallon and a half.
