I've been looking for a milk goat for months. The ram bred all of my milkers and they haven't been able to kid since he's been with them, so I've been out of milk.
Yes, I do have beautiful Dexter cows who are fresh, and I could milk them. But I just never got used to cows as dairy animals and it's hard for me to make the transition.
I visited a good friend today who milks Dexters but never did get the hang of dairy goats. She needed to get Tilly's big grown up Boer kids off of her because as you see, they were tearing her health down. Emma explained that she just doesn't think of goats as animals to milk.
So I got Tilly for $20. I also got a place to buy 2 gallons of Dexter milk each week.


  1. Oh My Word! I thought you got a good deal until I saw the photo. Yoo Hoo right after her c-section did not look this bad. Please feed her as much grain as she will eat for at least the next 3 months. She needs lots of TLC. She looks like a Saanen cross to me. Fatten her up first though.

  2. Awww, lucky Tilly. Good luck with her. Those ears don't look like they belong on her. Cute.
