Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

The weather has been very warm and very drying. It's great for getting the hay in. Since we have never done this it has been an adventure. My husband farmed these field organically for 20 years and then kept them mowed the last five years. A neighbor with equipment came and did the actually cutting and baling. For half the bales we got the rest free. It has taken us three days to pick most of it up and we have about 30 to 40 left to get today.  It looks like our share is close to 230 bales!  Now considering that we thought we would use about 100 bales this years this is wonderful!   My husband has said I can add to the herd if I want!   So...I am looking for another good milker.  

This has been an unexpected bonanza!

WOW! Congrats on the large hay crop!! Haying can be a tricky business sometimes --- more than once out crop has gone to the cattle farmers. :( Silly rain!
