Favorite Animals

Goats are my favorite animals. Someday, when we have more land, I want to raise goats. I grew up in the country, so I know a little bit about farm animals, but I know I will need to do a lot of research before I’m ready to have my own goat farm. I wouldn’t be opposed to dairy goats, but I know I could never raise my goats for meat. Mostly, I want them because I just like goats.

When I first started blogging, I saw a book on raising goats on NetGalley. I didn’t request it at the time, but now I wish I had. I think it was Raising Goats Naturally: The Complete Guide to Milk, Meat and More by Deborah Niemann. From the reviews on Amazon, it looks like a great resource and something I should probably read.

I love Maggie Stiefvater’s books, so I was delighted to find out that she likes (and owns!) goats, too.

  2. This is a great pick! Maggie Stiefvater owns goats? That’s awesome! I like that this is quite a unique pick, I’ve only seen one other blogger choose goats! Tanks for dropping by on my blog!

  3. This is so interesting. I’d never think about goats as someone’s fave animals. I guess they are so common and I have no idea. But then my fave is dolphin and I have never even seen one. Great post 🙂
