It's so very hard for me to decide what is best about having Kinder goats. Of course their size has to be factored in. I love that they are small enough, but not too small. I particularly like the fact that the boys aren't 250lbs of testosterone! The gals are tall enough to easily fit a pail under, but not so tall that I feel overwhelmed. I'm only 5'3" so they are just perfect for me! I love that the babies are smaller than a chicken when they are born. They are just the perfect size for cuddling. This photo shows my daughter's Barbie horse next to one of Tulip's newborn triplets from January 2009.
I love the milk that Kinders give. I have tasted milk from different breeds and I do have to say that it tasted flat and thin to me. Perhaps this is the way that the goats were fed, but I'll take my rich creamy milk over it any day!
I like the personalities of Kinder goats. My girl Tulip has kidded twice now, and both times she waited for me to be there with her. She talked to me the whole time she was laboring and would lick my face or nibble my ear between contractions. Then after the babies were born, she'd lick a baby, lick my face, lick a baby, then lick my face. It's a good feeling to have!
So many things to love about the Kinder goat that I can't possibly hope to tell you all of them. I've got a solution for you though.............GET SOME KINDER GOATS!
