    We would like to eventually get two nigerian dwarf does to use for milk.
    First off, would a 4 by 11foot stall be okay shelter, that would be the max I would go, what would be an okay minimum size? And then a 45 by 10 foot pasture area that will be section off from our horses. How many goats could fit in there? Is it better to start off with doelings or adult does that have already been milked? Should we get our own buck and keep him seperatly or use someone else's buck for breeding? And lastly how easy is it to sell the kids after they are weaned, how long does it take to sell?
