Goats!! Little Pygmy Goats!!

So, today's piece of the cheese fantasy wrapped itself around the absolutely adorable YouTube videos of pygmy goat kids (that's little baby goats). It was that kind of day. How cute are these guys? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkStLlJD9IQ&feature=related

Anyway, then I cruised over to another site to figure out if you can milk pygmy goats, and if their cheese is tasty. Turns out yes on both counts. And how awesome is that milking set up? Wonder how much space you really need? http://www.maggidans.com/milkingparlor.htm

It turns out that she freezes her goat cheese spread because she has so much milk coming out of those mini-udders. In most cases, freezing cheese is a big no-no. Freezing cheese makes it loose all its flavor. You can't really wrap your cheese up and stick it in the freezer to save those memories for later. It just won't be the same when you open the freezer door next month. Just eat up that tasty cheese! And go back and buy more!
