My herd is small, clean, and closed. I raise these beautiful goats for milk
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.

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.

Weekly Deep Cleaning of your simple PULSE

Sad Day

Today was a sad day here. We lost our beautiful herd queen, Luci. She was not only sweet natured and patient with the human children that loved on her, but she also was a valued member of the ranch. A high volume, high protein and butterfat producer of milk for our family, she will be missed. 
She kidded without trouble more goat kids than I can recall off hand.
Rest in peace LuLu.

For Sale

I have hand milked my goats for 13 years's been a time I treasured. Time I was able to sit quietly in the barn with my animals; the goats of course, barn cats, geese, chickens, and my dogs and horses. It's been therapeutic really.
Sadly, it has to mostly come to an end. My hands have hurt terribly this year and I finally went and saw a hand specialist. I have a genetic predisposition for arthritis and joint breakdown, and the more I milk the worse it gets. He said I need a new hobby, because this one isn't kind to me.

I can't see my life without them, and I believe the raw goat milk really is the healthiest choice. I enjoy making cheese and soap. I guess I'll just do it on a much smaller scale. So...that leads me to this post- I am selling quite a few of my goats. I already have. I will be keeping 2 milkers and my new buck, besides the older girls I wish to keep as pets because they deserve their retirement.

Cowboy is an amazing buck, and he did good work for me here. He sired 14 kids, all gorgeous and not one birthing problem. He is a beautiful animal and it pains me to sell him, but I will just no longer have a use for him here and he's young. See his page here:

The other goat is also a 3rd generation Miniature Nubian. This little doe was a first freshener this year. She kidded independently and without a hitch. Her little doeling was drop dead pretty and Bella Anna was a fabulous and loving mother. She had quite a lot of milk for such a small girl. Milk genetics are a strong point. Her faults are that she isn't friendly (but she stands perfectly still for milking on the stanchion) and her teats are very long.

See her page here:

Thank you

Goat Milk

Did you know that goat milk is an alkaline- forming food? Helps keep the ph level of your body at the proper level. 
I'm thinking this is extra good news for all of the people who still love milk in their morning coffee like I do, except they add a pinch of baking soda to theirs to make it less acidic😄🐐 
Drink raw goat milk line I do and you won't need to add baking soda to your morning cappuccino or latte!

Goat Milk Facts

Interesting Goat milk facts:
Goat Milk and Health:
A Dr. Jensen discovered a common denominator in his 70-year study of people over the age of 100 in 90 countries.
It was goat milk.
  • Margaret Patton of London died at 137 years old.
  • Jonathan Hartop walked nine miles a day at the age of 136 and lived to be 138.
  • Thomas Parr lived 152 years.
  • Peter Czartin from Austria lived to be 184.
All of these people lived on goat milk.
Goat milk neutralizes acids and toxins.
Goat milk is easily digested, making it the perfect food for children, elderly people, those with digestive difficulties, those recuperating from a disease or health conditions, and pets that have been weaned from their mother.
Goat milk is high in healing enzymes and has a superior form of calcium than cow milk.
The DIFFERENCE between Goats Milk and Cows milk:
Goat milk breaks down in the stomach in 20 minutes; it takes an hour/+ for the stomach to break down cow milk.
Goat milk may be drunk by people who are allergic to cow milk, but it contains lactose, so it may not be for people who are lactose-intolerant.
The major difference between cow milk and goat milk is that goat milk has smaller fat globules than cow milk, which makes it naturally homogenized and more easily digestible than cow milk.
Goat milk also has a higher butterfat content than cow milk.
Goat milk is a highly nourishing natural food for people who are allergic to cow milk.
Cow milk is mucus forming for many people. Goat milk is not only non-mucus forming, but actually helps to neutralize mucus.

First Chèvre of the Year!

I had just 2 quarts of extra milk to play with but I made the first chèvre of the year anyway. A sublime peppered chèvre!


Lola, who usually has triplets and last year had quads had a large single buckling! Black with moonspots and frosted ears. His ears are nicer than her kids generally have. She has airplane ears herself and that's been a struggle.

In the meantime spring is here in the high desert region of central Washington and we are happy about it!
