Making a TOUGH CHOICE for the farm 😥

Today we share a tough choice we had to make with one of our goats ❤️
Each morning on our one acre farm in the city of Phoenix, Arizona, we start the day with milking goats, feeding pigs, and gathering eggs. We have a small plot of land, but boy, do we make the most of it. Each animal on our farm is taken care of holistically & organically. We let the mama goats raise their babies until they reach 10 weeks of age and are naturally weaned from nursing. We keep a small herd of 5-7 milking goats, mainly the Nigerian Dwarf breed, although we still have the queen of the herd, Luna, our Nubian goat. We use the fresh goat's milk to make cheese, butter, cream, and we use it in all sorts of baking & cooking. We love that we can walk into our backyard and gather food. It's the best feeling ever!
After the morning chores, we usually tend to the pond -- we're always adding new pond plants and fish to maintain the delicate ecosystem of our natural swimming pool. Our backyard farm is full of adventures, and we're so happy to share our farm vlog with you. Hopefully you can feel inspired to grow something of your own, or care for an animal with kindness like we strive to do. Thanks for watching!

  • I can understand this. My family mainly has beers but we have a small herd of dairy goats. I have been reading through the comments and when people want dairy goats they want the registration papers that come with them too. I understand this but I am going to miss seeing Stella in your videos so much! 😭

  • Thank you for sharing your amazing farm life. My family love watching you all. We 100 per cent agree with your choices as they come from a kind caring educated heart. You are a great example for good farming. If I was born into the life of a goat I would much prefer to be on a farm like yours than to roam uncared for or waiting for coyotes to eat me or my baby's. Some people forget that its a trade of love, care and protection for milk.

  • Stella is like a miracle baby, maybe she has some special purpose, perhaps a special gene and that it was meant for her and her baby to go to this next farm for that purpose and you all made it happen by rescuing her mom and the accident pregnancy that made her. Animal breeders always have tuff decisions to make, sounds like a good one for your program and will make another family's program better.

  • well done! being a farmer has lots of decisions to make. don't stress. it's all good!! folks who are struggling with this probably see all animals as pets. farm life is not that. of course you love the animals, but reality is you can't keep everything. Stella will be fine, and her little doeling. and I will keep watching your adventures.

  • I think its a good idea, you have one big goal in mind (Improving your line of ND's) Stella wouldnt help that, but she could help someone who's focused on HER breed, she could greatly improve their line! i think it was a great decision.
