Day 77

My new goat, Fanny.  She is an Oberhasli, an Alpine type goat that originated in Berne, Switzerland.  All Oberhaslis are this beautiful bay color.  They are known for their sweet dispositions and sweet tasting milk.  In fact, their milk is said to taste the closest to cow’s milk when compared to other dairy goat breeds.  They will give from 3 to 4 quarts of milk per day.  Fanny is due to have her kids in about a week.
