    Well I'm so happy I got my first real milk goat that already has milk. I milked her the other day and the first milking she gave me in my measuring cup 8 cups of milk and I mean full up to the rim of it.. I'm so happy to have a really good milk goat. Me and my family loves the goat milk and boy does it make grand mashed taters.. :)

    Nice spiggots! :)

    Looks like a LaMancha/Alpine cross? Or is she pure LaMancha?

    Oh how happy for you! Everything is better with goat's milk-- mmmm! Ice cream, baking, pudding, cheese... you get the picture :)

    Way to go! How did you find this gem?
