Hello. I am hoping some of you can help me with something? I was planning on finding two saanen kids this spring to purchase, with the hope of breeding and milking them. I have a couple of friends with dairy goats, and one of them just offered to sell me one of her saanens. Does this sound like a good place to start? She said its pure saanen, 3 yrs old and needs to be bred now for a fallish freshening. Last year was her first freshening and she provided 1/2 gal. a day. She says the goat will likely provide more the second time around. I emailed her back asking about cost, if she would be lonely until she had a baby, and if the whole "make sure you get two goats" thing would work if she had at least one baby girl and I kept that one (would probably sell any billies...I don't have the space to keep both). I also asked about personality as one of the reasons I wanted kids was because we were hoping to bond with them early on. I chose Saanens because of their easy going temperament and because they are good milk producers and aren't as noisy as Nubians (I have neighbors). What else should I ask? And does this sound like a good option for a busy family starting out that also includes 6 children, ages 15, 12, 9, 6, 3 and 1? Thanks so much!
