She’s a Keeper

Goatlings from our farm usually go to new homes.  We have five adult does and keep our own buck.  We get milk from the moms when they kid and their babies are old enough to fend for themselves.  When they’re a few months old, we start separating moms from babies overnight and milk the moms in the morning.  Once they are fully weaned and fending for themselves at the grain feeder, the babies go to new homes and we milk the moms twice a day.  This year, all of our baby goats went to new homes except for CoCo’s doeling.  Isn’t she pretty?  Her dad’s an alpine, CoCo’s an oberhasli.  My husband was calling her ‘Lil C’ (little CoCo) and that eventually became Elsie.  A proper name for a future milking goat, I must say!
