Aka "Queen Bee," aka "Boss Babe."
Petal (2018) runs the show.She's friendly, maternal, and wise, but heavily food-motivated.Be sure to watch your toes--if you're in the way between her and her next snack, she'll not bother herself with walking around you.Always the first to the grain bin when a jail-break opportunity presents itself.
Aka "Rodeo."Clover (2019) was in her first freshening (first year in milk) when she came to my farm.Us both being new to the whole process, chaos ensued.We spent many early mornings and late nights playing tag and ring around the rosie (or in this case, the milk stand).Never underestimate the pulling power of a goat.A year and a half later, we have an understanding, she and I.I give her "the pets," the treats, and the all my attention, she allows me milk in return.
Aka "Eeyore."Tiger Lily (2017) is sweet, calm, and docile.She's a bit shy at first, but a quiet moment spent with her, and she just melts into you.Tiger Lily never complains or demands anything, and is always most remorseful when reluctantly taking part in Petal's monthly (weekly) jail-break attempts.
The definition of sweet and friendly.Delaney (2020) was one of my best impulse buys, after convincing myself I definitely needed to drive to Iowa to add another doe to my herd.I struck gold with this girl.Our journey has just begun.
Aka "Grass Puppy." Juniper (2022) was our first "keeper," born on our farm.From the beginning, I knew she was meant to stay with us.She comes to our call, and is eager to please.I cannot wait to see her continue to grow and mature.Gorgeous, sweet girl.

Additionally, it contains medium-chain fatty acids that are easy for the body to absorb and use as energy. Overall, incorporating goat's milk into your diet can promote overall health and wellbeing.
