    I found a woman who has mini-lamanchas only 2hrs away! I am going to talk to her tonight and figure out a time we can go down and see her farm and talk to her a bit. I am very excited to find someone near me with this breed. From what I have read about them, they would probably be the perfect type for us. Woohoo!

    Minis are Great if that is what works for you. I have large LM and a mini also. I have a mini Alpine too. They are alot of fun and easy to take care of .
    Check their feet and ask about CAE & CL testing. ask about eh worming schedules that they use and when you get them home if you get any worm then and trim the feet if needed before taking into your pen. This is what I do and I also dip the feet in Bleach water to prevent bringing something home that dont need to be there. Good luck and I hope you like them.
