Max is Sold!

Molly's remaining buckling, Max, has been sold! I put an ad up on Craigslist, and within 3 hours, I had sufficient response so I could pick and choose.
Here's Max as a newborn:
His twin brother, Morpheus, we sold to a petting zoo. And Max is going to be a herd sire! Yes, looks a little too little for that duty...but look at him now!
We didn't castrate him, as we had hoped to find someone that wanted one of our young bucks to use as a herd sire.
The gentleman that is buying him also wants a lesson in milking goats and wants to buy some goats milk  and some butter!
So, at 8 am tomorrow, I am giving an impromptu class in goat milking! I plan on using Champagne for my demo animal, as she is the best and easiest milker we have. I will also use one of our most difficult animals, Molly, so my student can see the best and worst of the goat milking experience!
I'll also show him how to filter and strain the mil and make his own butter.
I hope I do this well...the more people that know how to "do" for themselves and their families, the better!


  1. awesome, have fun with your class :)

  2. Lamb, Max and Morpheus are adorable, congrats on selling them. Your teaching this buyer how to milk and make butter should be fun and interesting at the same time. Enjoy!


Because of a couple of rude people that left comments that included links to porn pages and such, I have been forced to start moderating comments again.
