    Hey y'all! :wave:I will likely be hosting an ADGA Linear Appraisal session in 2017. However, I
    might not have enough animals to guarantee a stop. Would anyone be interested in joining me? I
    know that ...

    with NDs you have two totally different types..Alpines are often like this as well. A lot of
    the old French lines seem to be stockier, with slightly less extreme dairy character and
    different mammary ...

    With Nigerian Dwarves ... more emphasis on them as a productive, healthy dairy goat, not just a
    pet-maker. I think the best Nigerians are ones that can kid well, milk well for their size, and

    Resistance to worms is a huge thing. I wish that the breed registries would help in that way by
    keeping data on it somehow, maybe in conjunction with some research ag colleges.That is a good

    I would like to see goats being bred back to their original hardy beginnings. Some herds are
    are made of spun glass now days and would die of pneumonia from a single raindrop :lol:I
    readily admit that...

    Also, a pet peeve of mine is how many people breed nigies for blue eyes. I mean, it works
    because they're in high demand, but it's sad to me. So many blue eyed, registered does with
    poor attachments a...

    And your herd is definitely helping things along, Kylee. :) If I had NDs, I'd buy from you in a
