We’ve finally got our goats!  The Surbaugh family has been talking about getting goats for years, and we’ve finally taken the plunge.  Having plenty of acreage in Northern Minnesota just seems incomplete without some livestock.  We received 3 Nubian-breed goats from a friend/breeder in southern MN.  The mother goat, Almathea ,provides delicious milk.  Her daughter, Cookie Doe, will hopefully do the same in another year.  Cookie’s cousin, Stewie, rounds out the group.  As you can see from the picture, the kids love them and spend hours every day playing with them.  Goats are very social and love the attention.  Maybe we’ll have to add “petting zoo” to the list of Cascade Vacation Rental’s services?
