No one told me about the poop, the flies and the dag-gum regulations! No one told me not to fill up every last water bucket the night before a freeze. No one told me my new goat babies would be afraid of me and flee into acres of overgrown sage grass the minute I let them out of their carrier. How was I supposed to know they had to have kids before I could start milking them? How was I supposed to know they would need my help delivering those kids in the middle of the coldest night of the year? Did I mention the poop, the flies and the dag-gum regulations?
