The Trinity Rose Oberhasli goat herd got its start in January of 2006. Eddie would ask me what I wanted for my birthday and I would answer; “An Oberhasli goat.”
I had done my research. I knew that I wanted a dairy goat and I learned that the Oberhasli temperament was quite docile, easy to get along with, had a very delicate flavor of milk and best of all they were quiet! Not to mention their stunning appearance with the red bay coat and black markings that are the hallmark of the Oberhasli breed. I even found a breeder within a few hours of our home in Murfreesboro, TN.
After much persistence I overheard Eddie call his friend, Eddie2, and ask if he wanted to ride along because as he said I “…wasn’t going to give up until we went and looked at these goats.” Yippee! So we made the trek to see my now goat mentor and good friend, Marlys Miller, breeder of Milk-N-Mor Oberhasli.When we arrived she picked up the 3-day-old doeling and put her in my arms.
Oh mercy!! I was hooked! My very first Oberhasli dairy goats; Milk-N-Mor Mans Bonita and doeling Milk-N-Mor Miss Daisy (purebred too!), pictured at left with Mrs. Marlys Miller. I fell in love with these crazy creatures and they have been a source of pleasure, love, laughter and stress ever since.
The most important thing for me in keeping these beautiful goats that I think of as a gift from God is that I take the best care of them possible. Their health and happiness is priority # 1 here. In turn they provide our family with the most healthy and wholesome food.
These goats are family. Just ask my sons about the “other children.” They each have names (they know their names too!), wear collars and beg for treats.
In breeding I always try to improve on breed characteristics.
One of my favorite sayings is that “Spoiled goats give sweeter milk!” And I believe it’s true!
