What you'll do

First I will introduce myself and talk about where I live in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Eight years ago my then teenage son decided he wanted to raise dairy goats. And that started it all. Every morning and afternoon, I feed the Dottie Llama, 11 goats, a turkey and a duck, and many chickens. You are invited to join me on this morning routine. I will introduce you to each goat and tell you about about them and their story. I will also talk to you about the two breeds I raise, Oberhaslis and Nigerian Dwarfs, and explain a bit about the differences in the breeds. I will talk about the American Dairy Goat Association and what dairy goat shows are all about. If you are interested, I am an amateur, but I can talk about making goat milk soap and lotion. I will also show you the chickens and tell you about about them. I will discuss the breeds I raise. I can also talk about what it takes to have backyard chickens. Chickens are protein making machines. They are the ultimate compost machine in my opinion! We will also talk to the turkey. My tom turkey is very vocal and will come right up to you and do his turkey strut. Dottie Llama is shy, but I am working on training her to come to an enclosure. She is shy. I will explain to you Dottie's job is to keep the predators away - coyotes. She has been on the job 5 years.

I raise dairy goats registered with the American Dairy Goat Association for show, heritage breed red bourbon turkeys, and a breed of bantam chicken known as the Mille Fleur. I have a master's degree in Agricultural Science and have served as a 4-H Leader. For the past two years, my goats won first place at the Colorado State Fair Dairy Goat Obstacle Course. I only breed 1 to 2 goats a year striving to achieve dairy goats with the best features for show. I base my breedings on genetics obtained from the American Dairy Goat Association.

I was a bit surprised that I was the only one during that time because I was used to having to join with other guests. But whatever the reason, now it really felt like it was a unique tour just for myself! I loved meeting the animals and Dianne was very accommodating to my questions and was really enthusiastic in sharing the stories of each animal! I wish for my close ups and petting of the animals though so I can imagine I'm petting them myself. Especially the very cute llama with the beautiful eyelashes!! I wish i could pet them!

Dianne showed us all of her animals, which was a treat for our young llama fan. We enjoyed learning about her and her family, and getting a chance to see a different part of the country.

This was the best birthday present! I’m in love with llamas and any animals! There is sooo many animals to see, Dianne was personal and made sure we had time to ask questions and really took us around the farm as if we were there! Billie the goat and Dottie the llama was the highlight but learning about the farm life.

This was a great way to spend an hour! Dianne virtually introduced us to all the goats while discussing breeds, the process of showing and breeding goats, and her experiences. We also discussed her Llama and the different chickens and turkeys at her area. It was fun and informative, but had a very personal feel--like we got a true glimpse into her afternoon. The animals were super cute and I know more about them now!
