    Guess the due date! Come on, it will be fun!

    Is this her first freshening? Do we win a kid if we guess right??? I'm going to guess 12/25, cause I hear goats like to choose inconvenient times, BUT, full disclosure, I don't even have goats (yet). :(

    Fencing tool kit items

    My husband will be putting up fences in a couple months, mostly woven goat fencing and then some mobile electric fence. I thought I make him a fencing tool kit for Christmas. What tools/brands would you recommend to put in the kit? Thanks!

    Goat cheese recipe book recommendation

    The book is great. You should pic up a copy of the second edition if you can. I actually asked for mine for Christmas last year. I’ve been waiting forever for goats!

    We’re getting our goats from Deborah Neimann from Antiquity Oaks. She wrote Raising Goats Naturally and has the podcast For the Love of Goats, among other works. She’s not at all close but we love adventures. Thank you for confirming my breeding plan. Hopefully it works out in reality. Happy...

    I just seen that you’re from NW Ohio, so am I, that is until we retire next year. I will miss our home so much but we are moving to be near our kids. We’re about half an hour southwest of Toledo, about half an hour from Michigan and 45 minutes or so from Indiana. I love our home there…

    How exciting for you! Do you know when the new doelings will come? I’m already looking forward to improving my little herd eventually. That’s one of the reasons I was hesitant about getting an extra doe so that I could introduce new genetics and leaving room to do so when the time comes. I...

    Thank you. You’ve confirmed for me that I should just be patient. They will be registered and are from a very knowledgeable breeder. How many do you have and how many in milk do you usually have? Thank you for offering to answer questions. I know I’ll be here often to ask a million of them. I...

    Goat cheese recipe book recommendation

    Thank you for the suggestions and recipes! They sound delicious. I’m getting NIgerian Dwarfs, a doe in milk, a doeling, a whether and an unrelated buckling. I keep wondering if I should get an extra doe or if I should be patient because I know they’ll multiply quickly. What breed do you raise?

    Goat cheese recipe book recommendation

    Hi, I’ve finally put a deposit on my very first dairy goats. I’ll be getting them next summer and can barely wait! In the meantime, I’m looking for book recommendations for dairy product recipes like cheese and yogurt. Thank you.

    Grazing or pasture stick?

    They didn’t have the broken piece available. It’s missing about 2 inches. Maybe they’re not as useful as they say being that they don’t make them available??

    Grazing or pasture stick?

    I found a broken one on eBay and bought it to copy. There’s a lot of info on it.

    Grazing or pasture stick?

    My husband mentioned to me that he’s like a “grazing stick”. I can’t find a source for them. Does anyone know who sells them? Thank you. Here’s a link to how they’re used...

    Fencing, high tensile or woven sheep/goat? Also best interior fencing? PermaNet??

    I really appreciate all the replies. You’ve all really helped me think this through. We’re hoping we can find a Maremma breeder with the same kind of passion that Erick has.

    Fencing, high tensile or woven sheep/goat? Also best interior fencing? PermaNet??

    We’ve been researching the breeds and I think the Anatolians may be too much for us. That may well be a good conversation to have with Erick. They do sound like amazing dogs. If we fail our dog we could have a potentially aggressive problem on our hands. I’ve had dogs all my life and was a...

    Fencing, high tensile or woven sheep/goat? Also best interior fencing? PermaNet??

    This is exactly the type of breeder we would want and need. Once we have come to a decision about getting a LGD, I may just reach out and see if he thinks the Anatolian would be a good option for us. We need someone this passionate about his dogs to help us make the right decision in the end...
