These goats really work. I use the milk for cheese and soap, and other things. I milk by hand and expect lots of good tasting milk and nice manners on the stanchion.

My LGDs

Our Maremma livestock guardian dogs love the snow! The goats and people... not so much!

The basics of your simple PULSE



Can you tell my handsome husband bought me this milking system? I'm so excited! I had sold most of my darlings because my hands are shot, but this is going to allow me to keep up my favorite thing- and also try milking dairy sheep. I'm looking forward to spring and milking my little herd! Down from well over 20 goats down to 7 and 2 pregnant ewes. Everyone is pregnant so there will be some gorgeous kids for sale. I used Laz-E Acre Jump Off Joe exclusively this year and I'm very much looking forward to some outstanding kids.

We are sad we forgot to enter Joe in the Jr. buck division. What were we thinking??
