After more than a year of waiting, we finally brought home our first two baby nigerian dwarf dairy goats last weekend. They are very young, bottle babies in fact. I am enjoying them and learning so much every day.
Their names are Moonbeam and Adelaide. Adelaide (chocolate brown and white colored) will someday be my little milker. I will be taking her to her first dairy goat show next month in Chino. Moonbeam (black, white, and fawn colored) is my little wether/companion for Addy. He is such a sweet little guy.
I am over the moon with joy. It has been a long wait with a few heartbreaks along the way, but I can see a bright future ahead. Jerry is building a larger compound for them, but for now (since they're so young) they spend their days in the sunshine in this lucky dog kennel with a chain link roof, and their morning and nights indoors with us.
