Goats are the comedians of the barn. They are either looking at us in disgust or screaming because the wind is blowing a certain direction. Goats are like high maintenance divas always looking for a that nice fresh flake of hay... it's always "snack time" !
We have a mix match of breeds that meet the mix match of characters. Eat goat has a name and a story. The one with big horns is the matriarch of the barn and disapproves of almost everyone, except me - and will let them know. She was our very first goat almost 12 years ago and is still as beautiful as the day we drove her home.
Most of the breeds we own are Lamancha , Toggenburg and Alpine. Then there are the sawed off and hammered down ones.
Nigerian dwarves and some fuzzy angora goats.
We hand milk our goats daily, this maintains trust and produces the creamiest, sweetest milk! That milk is then made into lovely cheese, smooth yogurt and delicious ice cream. I also handcraft bubbly lather-full soaps for hair and body. Make the "old school" way with herb infused oils from our gardens. Occasionally I make small batches of skin nourishing lotions.
Halloween Goat Hikes have been a very popular event that we continue to plan year after year. Where else can you dress up like a spider and walk a goat dressed like a ladybug?
