The more Storey's Guides I read, the more impressed I am. THis was very helpful in figuring out what cross my goats are (rescued goats from various places), which I hope will help me care for them more appropriately. I love all the photos--and photos are sometimes more helpful than description when picking a pet. Sadly, now I think I want to add a bull (Milking Devon) to our little homestead. This is the first book that has clearly explained conservancy and its criteria.
