Lone I have had both.  I loved my Dexter and the milk was way better than goats milk.  Goats milk in my coffee & on my cereal just didn't do it..not to forget butter, whipped and ice cream! grin  And yes, too poor to own a cow or a goat now! evil

Why do folk have Dexters? 

Too poor to own a real cow and too proud to have a goat.

Actually mini's cost more than their full sized counterparts.  The hobby or gentleman farmer has mini's the real but poor farmer labors are fulled sized.

Brian you are right about the initial cost but the feed, conversion & impact on small pastures is way less with small animals. Not to mention at 5'2" and 110# it is much easier for me to wrangle a 5-800# animal that stands 43" compared to a 1000-1500# 50-60 " one!  Wink

+ i have no use for the amount of milk that i'd get from a full size milker.  even a mini would probably give me more than i need.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Well, we ended up selling our dairy goats recently and just bought a Jersey cow.  As I said before, I liked the goat milk; however my family didn't seem to enjoy it quite as much (especially this year, it seemed more goaty).
