Found a reputable breeder 50 miles from me and am going to look tomorrow at some miniture La Manchas armed with the questions you folks helped answer a few days ago. Got the Goat Gofer loaded in the truck and we hit the road at 7 am. Now the real questions will begin. What should I have on hand and what preperations do I need to make for my new animals. (probaboy and one 1 female, and her two kids, 1 boy and 1 girl.) We would like to milk and I guess that means taking the kids away from the mom. Is that ok? should we possibly get a second female to keep mom company? What would be Ideal for a small heard of no more than 5. Is the male kid going to be a problem as he matures, I mean mating with mom and sis?
