She’s a nubian dairy goat who came to our farm when one of our original nubians didn’t work out. She replaced Dulcinea, who wasn’t properly disbudded (or dehorned). We have a strict no horns allowed policy. We figured since we’re new to animal handling, we didn’t want to have to worry about getting gored. Disbudding isn’t pleasant, it’s done with a hot disbudding iron. We do it ourselves with the kids born on our farm, it’s my absolute least favorite part of farming. Sophie had two kids last Spring. She was a little skitterish before then, but got used to being handled during milking. She’s a beauty who doesn’t live up to her dangerous name at all.
