I once thought it would be fun to raise goats and make goat’s milk cheese. I even took a class in cheesemaking, though I have to admit my cheeses didn’t turn out that well.

My condo association doesn’t even allow cats or dogs, so I’m sure I couldn’t have a small herd of goats grazing on the grass in the common area – though when the pool gets fixed, they’d have plenty of drinking water.
