My two Alpine Dairy goats are named Bonita and Ida, and here they are sharing their landscaping talents for free. Every day I let them out for a while of their pen and they run around and kick and snort, eat, steal chicken feed, and follow me back into the woods. Bonita is still being milked but only once a day at this point, and her production is at a solid half gallon or more a day. That's half of what she was producing but as the weather heats up her biological clock tells her to produce less. I mean, if you raised a kid that ate green things and green things were everywhere, you'd get tired of nursing too! I think folks like seeing goats being goats, so here is a snapshot.
Notice Gibson is keeping close watch on the chick tractors. Very important.
