But there is still so much I need to learn about them. I have read 2 books – cover to cover – about the care, keeping, breeding and milking of goats. I have joined a few Nubian Goat yahoo groups, and regularly visit my local Blue Seal feed store to talk “goats”. But I still feel like I know nothing about them. Just like I did when I first got into chickens …. now the knowledge of their care and keeping comes so natural to me. It won’t be long before I find goats easy to keep … hopefully. And then I will have to add another species to our ever growing homestead. Next … sheep.
Oh – and caring for farm animals makes for perfect homeschool lessons. Always a bonus. So – the more we get, the smarter my boy gets —- at least that’s the line I am feeding my husband.
