Since then, the girls had their ADORABLE babies, and we've gotten four more goats. Our mini-herd is up to ten crazy, wonderful, sometimes obnoxious, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, all does. Wow. I couldn't imagine life without them!
A little note about the milk they produce: Yum, incredible yum! Creamy and extremely nutritious. For those of you who have tried goats milk and thought it tasted "goaty", I can give you two explanations for that. Either the does were kept too close to a billy goat and his smell (ewww), rubbed off onto them and penetrated the milk. Or, the milk was not cooled fast enough/was not handled properly. Goat milk from the grocery store just doesn't compare; I wouldn't even waste my money on it. For those of you who haven't tried it, you should.
Stay tuned for our Dwarf Dossier series.
