I had goat milk in Mallorca, Spain. I thought it was weird when I had the first glass, but by the time we left, I had become quite fond of it. I have had goat milk from herds with a billy goat. Yuck! I never want to taste anything like that again.

I would love to try the milk my ancestors drank: reindeer.

Tax Lady,

It is very common in the Iberian Peninsula, to have ewe or goat´s milk in the rurals ... or fresh cow´s milk ...

Reindeer milk is very common in Sweden too ... When we were in Stockholm a few years ago ( had a maternal Aunt of My Mom Eva, who was married to a Swede ) and lived in Stockholm --- so we had visited her.

I mentioned to the Vet, that I thought the milk was alot creamier and thicker then what I had seen, and I always drink Espresso or Greek or Turkish Coffee; NEVER with milk unless it is a Cappucchino, on rare occasion.

It was in a small white ceramic reindeer on the serving table ...

Interesting, and has a totally different bouquet, as reindeer eat herbs and various tundra grasses, and the mineralology content, comes through the bouquet.

Kindest, Have lovely summer,
MARGI.

I tried horse milk in Kyrgyzstan. They ferment it, and give some to all guests. Even strangers are considered to be guests if they wander by, so I had to drink it. It isn't something I would drink, if I felt I had a choice. They didn't pull my head back, and pour it into my mouth or anything like that, but I still felt I had to drink some every time it was offered, because they are big on hospitality there, and refusing any type of hospitality is rudeness to them.

Though there was horse milk and horses everywhere in Kyrgyzstan, I never say anyone milking a horse.

that's good of you, and certainly the proper thing to do. Thanks for being a good ambassador!

I had a buddy go there for work, and iirc, one of the national dishes is strips of horse fat, in fermented mare's milk. What I DO remember clearly was a kilo of saffron for the equivalent of something like $10US. Amazing.

It is very common in Mongolia as well, to milk their ponies & mustangs, an ancient horse variety ... In Asia, the milk source mammals are numerous.

When, we lived on Crete ( there are no cattle ), ewe milk or goat milk were and are the only sources of Milk ...

Interesting Post ...
Have a nice August.
Margi.
