a Mona Lisa smile

We have a new family member, due to a trip to the Manchester animal yard.  Her name is Mona Lisa, a Nubian dairy goat.  Because we don't really have the facilities, she's living over at Cornman Farms.

The vet think that she's needs to get pregnant to rejuvenate her milk production, so we're letting her dry up for now before we breed her.  In the spring we'll begin the experiment of making dairy products, yogurt, and cheese out of Mona Lisa's milk.  And you will be privy to the inside track.

our first milking of ML - still learning the moves.
