We had some options at the precious farm in Black Forest:

 

Can you figure out which one we picked?

The character in the rear was adorable, but we aren’t in the miniature horse market…unfortunately.

The character in the front was loud and obnoxious, but we aren’t in the goose business either…FORTUNATELY.

Three loud roosters at my house is enough domesticated bird noise for me. 

No need for BBBBBAAAAAALLLLLLKKKKKing geese. 

Thankyou very much.

So, we picked her. 

Lucy.

She’s in milk.  She’s adorable.  She’s lovable.  And, she’s in milk.

Oh, I mentioned that? 

Lots of cheese eaters need LOTS of milk.

So, most importantly, she’s in milk.

And, how could you resist this face?

But, I did have to educate her that I don’t kiss goats.

She wasn’t convinced.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.

    Awwwww……goats should definitely be kissed. I kissed one of the two baby boy goats – very carefully on a spot far away from his pee-loving mouth. That’s gross!
