This reminds me of learning to milk my Mom's friend's goats when I was a child. We used to drink the milk right from the pail, while it was still warm. Sadly I have a dairy allergy, and now am even more allergic to goat's milk :(
Aw! Beautiful photos. My husband wants goats here on the farm so he can have the fresh milk. Remind me not to show him this post ;-)
How does the milk taste? My dear E's family lives nearby and he tells me as a child he once had goat milk on his cereal when he came to visit their farm. He was a little surprised as he found it more sour than he expected. I've never tasted goat milk, so I am curious. I LOVE feta, though, but I imagine this is quite different than raw goat milk. I'm curious and I'll have to give it a try soon! :) Such darling little creatures. We nearly brought a few home as pets when we lived up near Foymount - I sure wish that we had. :)
I love the pictures. What a great photo essay. :)
Wow, what an amazing experience for you and your children. I am a bit jealous of your goat adventures!Jennifer @ Dark blue dragon
That first photo is So sweet! Goats most certainly will be an adventure. Enjoy!
Oy, I am SO behind. Immersed in other things, but I'm here now and mighty glad that I am - such beautiful photos! I want to kiss a goat too. No, no, I don't. But I want to get a gorgeous photo like you did.
I love goats milk. I was actually raised on goats milk after my mom went back to work. One day I would like to have a bit of property to keep a goat or two. My husband loves goats as well.
