Our Journey in keeping backyard goats!
Specializing in Mini-Nubian, Nigerian Dwarf, and Myotonic breeds
I find such joy, beauty, and comfort in following God's will; which includes being stewards of the earth and caring for all living things therein. This, of course, is why I enjoy raising a herd of goats in my backyard!
Most references to goats in the Bible are in a negative connotation, which after keeping goats for a few years, I totally understand why!! But the verse that has stuck with me the most in reference to goats is Song of Songs 6:5, when the writer is describing the beauty of woman, "Your hair is like a flock of goats streaming down from Mount Gilead." And to me, beauty is when all my goats are running to greet me! So when trying to come up with a name for our quaint herd, I remembered this verse and it just felt perfect!
All is possible through the love of God, family, and goats!!
Our herd has tested clean from CAE, CL, and Johne's.
