Goat's milk soap

I'm really hoping to make some of this...

goat's milk soap

But to do that, I have to have some of this...

udders full

Which means I need some of these...

Awww!

To come out of this...

I'm watching but not sure what I'm watching for

And in order to do that, I have to figure out how to tell when she is ready for this...

What a stud!  I mean, buck.

and then get her there within the 24 hour window.  Did I mention my breeder lives 2 1/2 hours away?

It's a lot more complicated than buying milk at the store!
But seriously, I have my recipe standing by.

Doe and Buck photos are from Dill's A Little Goat Farm (my Nigerian Dwarf goat breeder)

  1. I've been making goat's milk soap for years not and I love it! So do my customers! It's a great feeling being able to head to the barn and collect fresh eggs and milk and use that milk to make cheese, milk, butter, soap, etc. Once you've tried it you won't go back to that commercial junk - mean soap. We're a few weeks out from kidding and really looking forward to it!

  6. If you don't have a buck close by you may not ever see signs of heat, so it might be easier to leave her with the buck for a couple of weeks. You asked about your yearling, you're vet is probably right, if it's just a runny nose without lethargy or anorexia, he should be ok. If there are horses near by that travel off the farm (yours or neighbors) you should go ahead and vaccinate. Your vet would know what's best to vaccinate for in your area.

  10. No way! No buck, no heat! Wayne was just saying this morning that he doubted that we would ever see them in heat. I guess I'm gonna have to find a buck.

    Thanks 4R for the horse advice too.

  13. We've just started kidding here. I began making goat milk soap this winter, and I love it! Hope you get your calendar figured out. Maybe it would be easier to buy and then resell a buck.

  14. We have three Nigerian Dwarf goats, one is in milk, one is her kid and the other is a wether. I am just now starting to milk her and am so excited! I am starting out with just milk for now but have grand ideas of soap and cheese!! I am just taking it one step at a time to make sure we have everything handled. Good luck!!
