I begged my husband for goats. I pretty much demanded them, I’m ashamed to say. I pleaded. I cried. My poor husband. He didn’t really like them much…but he got them for me anyway. Our first go around (yes, we’ve done this twice–I’m determined), we got Pygmies. They didn’t work out very well, actually, for either of us. They were too small for milk, and not very friendly. But recently, I talked my man into some more goats!
“We can have milk! I’ll take care of them! You won’t have to do a thing!” I said. Yeah. Well, we’ll see about one of those things. (The milk.) Turns out, we both take care of them, and my husband has had to do a LOT, including building a better goat pen for our three new “kids.” And put up more fences. And take us to the vet in the middle of the night. Yes. I love my husband–he is the BEST man in the world!
Needless to say, there are quite a few things I’d wished we had known about goats before getting them, and I’m going to share these things with you! I hope you learn from our experiences!
