On The Cover
      Ty Chupasko (25) is swarmed with kids at The Reynolds Barn in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. He did not think twice about dairy goats until he started dating writer Miriah Reynolds three years ago. Once submerged into a life with dairy goats, he admits that he loves the creatures and now can trim hooves, clip, milk, and even assist with kidding. Ty is a mechanic at Bozeman Audi in Montana.
