Comment being reported:
I too was hoping to make cheese or soap with goat milk. In my haste & ignorance, I purchased my two pygmy girls from Craigs list with only a picture to go by, they were larger than I expected (possibly not 100% pygmy?)& though the owners were animal lovers these obviously were kept in a field & not "handled" much. they were also kept in the field with the billy (we learned when they were delivered) & were most likely bred, ok, cool, though no idea when they would kid which was kind of stressful! Well, only one turned out to be bred & she delivered a nice healthy female (yea!)all on her own while we were at work, but mama is a bit of an ornery "pasture queen" and they are both quite skittish about being handled that she wouldn't allow me to milk her. After a couple of minutes, when her feed was gone, she kicks & carries on, the most I had ever gotten was a few tablespoons. Being a rookie, I gave up. I would like to trade the two adults in for a smaller female that is more "pet" quality but not quite sure what to do with these two. I have made a slight bit of progress in easing their skittishness.
