I just had to share my excitement! Today we went and got a mommy Saanen goat and her 3 week old kid. The baby is a boy, and super cute! I am really excited to get into trying my hand at milking my own goat and raising this little kid. We need a name for this little guy. He's a little bit shy right now, but I'm sure he'll come around. Millie, the momma, is soooo sweet, she's very tolerant of all of us handling her baby and all of us grabbing at her udders in our clumsy attempts at milking. We already found out she loves strawberries- she dribbled the juice all over her lips and then gave me a sticky 'kiss' !! I'm suprised at how sweet she is, she's really a people goat. We arent going to milk her for 'reals' yet, we just wanted to see if we could do it, if that makes any sense! We are going to wait until the little guy is a few weeks older before taking any milk for us, not to mention we have to build a milking stand and get all the stuff we need for collection and storing. If anyone has any tips or pointers to share, I would love to hear them. Thanks!
