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.
