My name is Donald Chavez y Gilbert. My avocation has been to rescue the New Mexico Dahl Heritage Sheep from extinction. There were only six left back in the 1980s when I started rescue efforts. I am a 16th generation descendant of El Dorado Spanish Explorer, Francisco Vasquez de Coronado y Lujan, (

Whoop! I am delighted to have you here! Welcome to the forum from Texas. Join in our fun and madness, we are a friendly bunch of folks. Most of us are small hobby farmers and love our way of life. We raise Katahdin sheep and have a small flock.

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to the forums. That's just fascinating! I hope I can have a chance to have that kind of farm pet too.

Welcome! That really cool about the goats! Wish you the best of luck!!!
Goats make good pets because of a variety of characteristics, but they are usually thought of as farm animals. A lifelong favorite in petting zoos, their curious and friendly disposition makes them a comfortable companion.
