Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

So Glenda asked how it was going... It's been slow going... but at about 3 weeks in Things suddenly got better. She still takes her time walking to the stand, but there is no dragging or fighting. She hops on the stand and eats while being milked... for several weeks she'd eat just a mouthful or two and then stand stiff and angry, eating when the milking was done and hoping off the stand as soon as you opened her stand.

She loves attention, but likes it on her terms. She doesn't come when called, but does talk back to me whenever I call her. She loves to have her sides scratched and I have to keep a close eye on her if she gets out of her pen she heads straight to the chicken's scratch. Which had us worried when she bloated up after a late afternoon snack. Some olive oil and baking soda worked well for it, but I have taken more care to lock up the chicken's pen when they are released in the afternoon so if she does get out, she can't get in.
