St. Patty’s Day is for Kids

Alpine goat baby


Goat kids, that is.  Thistledown welcomed two Alpine dairy goat bucklings on Saint Patrick’s Day.  Mama and babies are all healthy; however, mama goat chose to nurse just one of them leaving the humans at Thistledown to nurse one of the brothers.  Named Patrick and O’Malley in honor of the holiday they were born on, the two brothers are available for sale.

Alpine Dairy Goats

The Alpine dairy goat is a medium to large sized goat.  Our female mother Thistle is probably around 75 lbs and our male Briar around 175 lbs.  This is the only breed of goats with upright ears. Both the males and females have horns and they come in a variety of colors and color combinations.

These  are hardy, adaptable animals that thrive in any climate while maintaining good health and excellent milk production. Find out more about Alpine dairy goats at the Dairy Goat Journal.

Baby Alpine Dairy Goats for Sale



The brothers are for sale and available with papers.  They are $250 each and we will offer a discount to a good home that is interested in both.

Alpine goats make excellent companions, lawn mowers and pack goats. They are typically larger, stronger, and healthier than other goat breeds. They are easy to train, bond with their keepers and are rather affectionate.
