Meet Gretta, the matriarch of our goat heard.  She is a beautiful pure bread nubian milk goat.  We purchased her at a livestock auction back in march.  She came with her two female kids which we believe to be part boer goat (I’ll post pictures of them soon).  She is the sweetest, most personable animal we’ve ever had.  She loves people and loves to be with them.  Whenever she sees any of us in the yard she starts “baaing”  at us to come and see her.  She loves to go on walks down the dirt road and sample all the tasy plants along the way.  We’ve gone to calling this “goatdonalds”  because it’s like drive through fast food for goats.  Anyway we love her and have greatly enjoyed having goats.  I’ll post more on their antics and character as time goes on.  If any one is considering getting a goat as a pet my recomendation is yes.  They are sweet, loving, attentive and smart.

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
