The Goat Herd

I thought I’d share a few pictures of the goat herd. I just started separating the kids at night and milking the mamas in the morning. This morning was the first morning that we had cold cereal for breakfast since I’ve been milking and some of the children told me they liked the milk!  I agree the milk is good and you can’t tell it’s from a goat.
Back to the goats…….

Cordelia and Cranberry  🙂 The youngest set of twins.


Our youngest daughter with the goats.  She also loves being with the goats.  She has her favourites.  😀


Our youngest trying to catch Hero.  🙂  He loves the baby goats ❤

 

  

There is Toby, our buck.  Since he has been moved away from the females, he and Izzy our calf from last year have become great friends. 

 That’s a bit about our little herd.  We also have chickens, chicks, plus a cow and her calf.  I was milking the cow, but after my trip last fall to Mongolia, I didn’t pick it back up, she was not nice to milk and now I would not try it.  I won’t risk our baby.  She is a kicker!  Goats are so much easier to handle and milk.  🙂
