We jumped in without even looking, really. We spent nearly 20 minutes on research, and asked just a few questions and felt we were ready. We just knew we wanted goats. I mean, we became parents without any prior knowledge or experience, and our kids turned out okay, right? Well, turns out that goats just were not the same thing. At all.
We felt that Nigerian Dwarf goats were the best for our small homestead, due to their smaller size. Since we wanted milk, we had to have one that was pregnant or had recently given birth. I located a lady who was selling a pregnant doe and called her up. I agreed to drive up to meet her, about 2 hours away and see this goat. I feel in love with her homestead, and all the goats, chickens and horses she had running around. I just “knew” that I had to be like this. Oh, naive fool that I was.
