Our very first-ever homegrown doe! Zoe was the first goat to be registered with our herd name, and, in keeping with Sophia’s naming convention, has a Greek name. Zoe is named for the Byzantine Empress Zoe; “zoe” is also the Greek work for “life”.

Zoe’s tiny first udder bloomed into something I think is quite great for her second freshening. The skin is buttery soft, the teats long, plumb and well placed, and her production has tripled. I am eager to see what our appraiser thinks of our first Duagwyn girl.

Zoe has two daughters here: Zuzu and Zara.
