Our dairy goats are not only foundational to Goat Milk Stuff, but they are a big part of our family as well. Each of them has a personality and during this series we’re hoping you’ll get to know more about them.
Zuzu was one of the first goats we got when we rebuilt our herd from scratch – she’s been here a while.
She’s one of our favorite does to milk, and she tends to reproduce herself in her kids. Out of the ten kids she’s given us, we’ve kept nine, and they’re all great milkers, just like her.
I sat down with my brothers to talk about her.
Brett: So, what can you tell me about Zuzu?
Greyden: She’s fat.
Greyden: Well, Zuzu’s REALLY fat.
Colter: Yeah, she is.
Emery: *nods head* She’s probably the fattest in the herd.
Greyden: Everyone thinks she’s pregnant all the time.
Emery: When she’s actually pregnant, we get all excited because we can’t wait to see what babies we’re going to get from her!
Greyden: They’re usually girls.
Emery: We’ve only gotten one boy from her – we kept him though.
Colter: I like Zamboni. I’m glad we kept him.
Greyden: I like her babies. They’re so cute!
Emery: I like ALL of her kids. I can’t believe we’ve kept so many from her. It doesn’t seem like that many, until you look at the picture we took a while ago of Zuzu and all of her babies.
