    What do you think of them? Are they a "quieter" breed? What is the milk like?

    I have Alpines in the past and they were wonderful...I have known some to be flighty and some so laid back it was unreal...They each have their own persoanlity and each is different. I just recently got a new Alpine doe and she is the type that nothing scares her. I have only seen her run a few times when the goats get startled.
    The milk is good and we like it, I believe its lower in butterfat than the La Mancha.
