    I have started looking at adding Spanish goats to my dairy herd for meat animals. I have made contact with a local Spanish Goat breeder and will be looking at them in a couple weeks. I think I am going to get a buckling first if I like them. My Oberhasli buck is going to need a buddy next month when I move him out of the girls pen in prep for kidding. After I get the new buckling I will add on doelings. I don't really like Boer goats that is why I am trying to find a different meat goat.

    Does anyone have Spanish goats? If so what do you like about them? What don't you like?
