The complete family

After several weeks we finally received our third goat Vanilla Bean from South Dakota.  This has been a bit of a journey with the original plan of us purchasing the sister of Aspen and Charlie.  The breeder decided to retain the doe and offered this as an alternative solution.  Just when we finalized details to pick up Vanilla Bean, one of her sisters unexpectedly died.  Everything was put on hold until the vet could identify the issue.  They concluded it was something she ate and no other goats had issues.  So, finally this weekend we have the trio.  Charlie, Aspen and Vanilla Bean.  Sadie will show Vanilla Bean and Eli will show Aspen.

There has been some adjustments but so far they are doing pretty well.


She is much larger then the other two and has much coarser hair.  She reminds us of a dairy goat.

Here are the other two


I was also excited because i am now a registeted breeder with the dairy goat association and received the official paperwork for Aspen.  The kids also got their official paperwork for completing ethics class for 4-H.  They can officially enter the county fair.

I am a school administrator by day and a new hobby farmer by night. My family consists of my husband, a farmer boy at heart, and myself, a city girl learning the ropes, along with our two children. We are excited to embark on this new adventure.
