Default Welp. Just made the leap.

DH and I took our first steps towards building our homestead. We bought two Nubian goats to be future milk girls. One has been raised partially in the house with dogs as she was only a pound when born and needed to be bottle fed. The other girl was small as well and got a lot of extra handling as a baby.

<3 Given names from the farm are Daphne (sticking to their D year) and Matilda (the goat who had a lot of extra treatment). I'm not sure yet whether we will keep those names or pick new ones.

We were all dressed up for dinner, not typically what I would wear to the barn.

I want meat goats! Don't have to get up early to milk those!

Congrats! They are adorable I love Nubians, they have the sweetest temperaments (and such fun colours!). Have fun with them!
