Since we have the pigs (and still no cow milk!), and I could think of many more uses for the goats milk (soap, yogurt, cooking, etc) I thought it was a grand idea.
My cousin had alot of dairy goats to choose from and we decided to take one of her mature does, Oopsie Daisy, and a young doeling for our daughter to have as a future 4H project, which she named Rosebud.
I have to say, it is like riding a bicycle - a skill you never forget, though you do get a little rusty LOL. My biggest worry was the carpal tunnel in my wrists and hands flaring up from milking, but thankfully it hasn't been an issue.
Both kids were willing and excited to learn to milk, especially our daughter. Seeing her small hands getting milk from the goat... THIS is what it is all about <3 <3 <3
