Santa Fe is an amazing place. I live right in town—and within three miles of TWO goat coops! I was part of one, and now I’ve switched to the other! It’s an amazing coincidence that my new coop is called “Miel Y Leche” (Honey & Milk).
Here is a pictorial tour of my new coop. The girls are quite a mix—the ones that look like they have no ears (this takes some getting used to) are called LaManchas. Then there are two brown goats that have Alpine heritage; and then the two youngest girls, one with airplane ears, and one with tiny-stunted ears—they are a blend of LaMancha and Nubians.
They are great milkers, and I get to share the responsibilities with 12 other coop members. And we still get enough milk for our household and for your soap!
