Yes, I'm starting to think about doing something like that for a birthday someday soon if we ever get settled and a good fence. This passing fancy does not appear to be going to pass and if I get him the cow, I may get to pick it to make sure it's a good one rather than an auction heartbreak special or something he sneaks off to get on his own with no experience or caution in a year or two while I'm not looking. I don't see ourselves with a huge dairy cow herd though. He's going to have to temper that notion.

Buck spa day. I spent an hour doing hooves, copper, selenium, with a famacha check on the six of them. The young dwarves were the rowdiest cry babies... I love the soil here in regards to hoof health. It's been 3, 4 months since last trim and they have been wearing down without too much rot despite the daily down pours.
I ordered sheep rabies vaccines. The vets use them on goats here.

Next I will work my way through the does with copper, selenium, and hoof trims.

I really want individual pictures of all the goats. I may harass the other half. Pics on your own doesn't work well.

Hello,
My name is Emi, and you are my best friend. No, I am not perfect, but you are amazing either way. Let's go have an adventure.
Here I am with my best friend, Eri. Off camera is my best friend, Lace. Also, so are my best friends, the little boys. Later I will go hang out with my other best friends in the pen. Everyone is my best friend, except Mallow, who likes to butt and bite my tail. But that's okay, because my best friends Summer and Lacey take care of her when she does that. Eri and I are at the bottom of the pecking order, but I don't care because life is a big social party. Except when Mallow is tied and Eri and I are not (we stay close by). Then Eri and I stand on either sides of Mallow and take turns butting heads with her when she tries to get us. It's so fun.
