Homesteading is a lot of learning as you go.  You think you know what you are doing.  You think you have done your homework and research.,,,then one day one of your goats is sick, it's scours and you don't know what it is or what to do about it.  Your goats will keep you learning.

 

I did an article a while back about milk stand manners and after some recent encounters with some other goats I thought it might be a good idea to do an article on just plain goat manners.  I know that may sound like an oxymoron but it really isn't.

There are alot of stories involving how curious goats are but just how curious are goats?  The question may even be are they curious or are they just plain nosey?

Homesteading is a lot of learning as you go.  You think you know what you are doing.  You think you have done your homework and research.  Then you dive in and find out you don't know a lot.  This also applies to goats.  When we first started talking about goats and dairy goats in particular we did quite a bit of research.
