Betty (black and white) and Praline (tan and white) joined the crew at 47 Daisies in May of 2010. Betty is a nubian doe and Praline is a wethered nigerian dwarf. We are going to be adding a few more goats to the herd this winter/spring. We just found out that Buccaneer and Cadillac will be coming to live at the farm probably some time in March (as soon as I finish the "Barn Makeover".....but that is another story in itself). Buccaneer is a full-blooded nubian buck (pppppp...ewwww...) and Cadillac is a wethered nigerian dwarf to keep him company. We will hopefully be breeding Betty some time late summer/fall of 2011. We are attempting to add milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream (mmmmm....) to our family's food supply. While we will not be selling milk due to Louisiana Law (prohibits the sale of raw milk), or cheese (requirements of a commercial kitchen) we will be sure to write updates as we move through these ventures.
Hope all had a merry holiday with friends and family!!!!!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
