Saanen Milk Goats 

My first Chevre : )

Over the last few years I slowly switched from Nigerian dwarf to the Saanen. I am so glad I did! I originally thought the little Nigerian dwarf goat would be easier for me to handle given my petite size. Turns out they were little devils! Ha-ha, completely adorable but total stinkers. These Saanen beauties are nearly as tall as my Landseer dogs but elegant and gentle. They are much taller and heavier but so much easier to manage and just super sweet and loving. Add to that they kid easily on their own and in any weather and can produce a gallon a day and it is a no brainer. Their teats are easier to handle and milk as well. I would say the only drawback is the slightly lower fat content. I will take that. No wonder they are the most milked goat in the world. Sometimes you just need to follow the wisdom. Lesson learned. I adore my Saneens!
