Happy 17th Birthday to Dixie-Does Alpines! I remember 17 years ago this morning we brought home our first two dairy goat kids in the back of our family station wagon. Well my mom drove us, we were all too young to drive in those days:-). It's been over a year since I've seen the goats, they now live on my sister's farm in Tennessee, but I have so many good memories of the years of working together with my siblings on our herd, milking, showing, making breeding, buying and selling decisions, middle of the night kiddings....Maybe someday goats will be in my future again but for now I'll just remember, and enjoy not being tied down by a miking schedule!
