my parents are selling a BT 1st kidder from a cae, milk recorded show herd.
she is milking well.
problem being we are in Cambridgeshire.
we can still learn if we are willing to listen.

If your nanny is horned you will have to buy another horned goat, otherwise the incomer would be at a significant disadvantage.
If you think your nanny will be boss, maybe look for a goatling, ready to mate this autumn, and run your current girl through.
