Chocolatte (Choco for short) is one of our favorite LaMancha dairy goats.  Born in 2007, her registered name is JAQ’s Taquila Whitney.  She joined our herd as a 4-H show goat for our daughter.  Choco has a wonderful disposition, and has joined us at many dairy goat shows and county fairs over the years.  She was even invited to a Christmas Eve service at our church, where she joined the pastor at the pulpit while he gave his 30 minute Christmas Eve sermon.  (We attend a suburban church, so she was a bit of a novelty).  Choco did very well, standing quietly and not leaving any surprises at the alter!  As she is one of the “senior” goats in the herd, she takes on a leadership role with many of the younger goats, and also is good at training any new farm dogs.
