Of all the animals in the world, my 7 year old is besotted with goats. We're going to have to get a few. She loves goat cheese and assures me earnestly that she could milk twice a day. uh huh. I'm thinking of getting Nigerian Dwarfs because of their small size and quality of milk. But I'd love to hear pros and cons of any goat breeds. I had a couple of La Mancha's 20 years ago. One was a sweetie but the other one was a spawn of satan. She spent the whole day figuring out how to get out of the fence. And I have to admit, I'd rather have a prettier goat this time around. Like a dainty little Saanen. Are there any goat breeds that are more content to stay home or is it just luck of the draw? Are smaller goats really easier to contain or do they just squeeze out of smaller spaces? Ideally I'd like a breed that's laid back, gentle with children, and basically just likes to stay in the yard eating weeds and looking pretty. And what are the drawbacks, if any, of NDs? I'd love any input or advice. Thanks!
