The dairy goats (Toggenburgs) have settled in really well and we are enjoying them. They are very interactive and have a certain goaty charm. They have to be coddled much more than the sheep, and given shelter from the weather. Each morning they are taken out to the hill paddock, it has plenty of browse, and at night brought home, fed concentrates, and yarded. We are now looking forward to their kidding and the prospect of milking them. I am attending a cheese making workshop at the Reidsdale Cheese factory in anticipation.
