Claire has been asking for a goat for some time now because she wants to go back to making cheese.  Today we answered an ad we found for someone that was selling one—a female (of course) and just a few months old.

She is not of the Alpine breed that we had before but an older race, original to this area, Chèvres des fossés.  She fell in love with her as she saw her photo and calls her Mignonne.

Here she is :


  1. A cutie - did you buy them both?

  2. No, the mother stayed at home; we were only interested in little Mignon!
