A goat, a milking stand, bucket, strainer, a place to keep it, food, water. You can get all the best stuff, or wing it and get stuff as needed. Your main thing is a lactating dairy goat, those are harder to come by. So I would prepare housing and fencing, than find a goat, you do have to have it bred yearly and do something with the kids.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Knowledge.If you want to be successful and keep your goats alive, learn all you can about them. Breeds, size, heat cycles of the different breeds, nutrition requirements for all stages of their lives which are different for kids,bucks in and out of rut, does before being bred, while pregnant and after delivery, while nursing or drying up. Though they use natural,herbal and holistic approach to raising their dairy goats, they have wonderful info including lists of things needed for things like what you should have on hand in case of emergency, plain maintenance, what to have on hand for a birthing kit etc. Check out www.fiascofarms.com
