You are all ready for some goat kids (baby goats), but first you have to breed your does (female goats). Does go into heat at certain times and you must catch them in that small window of time in order for them to stand for your buck (male goat) so they will get pregnant. Some does are a little more obvious when they go into heat than others. If you familiarize yourself with these 6 signs your goat is in heat, you’ll be sure to catch the right time so you end up with baby goats!
We moved to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia from the beaches of Virginia after Justin promised me (Kristin) that if we moved we could get goats. After about a year of searching, we found the perfect house and property. We started our mini-farm/homesteading journey with a small flock of laying hens and a small garden. After a year, we finally got goats! Now that we have been on our mini-farm for several years, we have had so many adventures and journeys and enjoy sharing our experiences with others looking to do that same.
