  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hi there! We just got our first goats last week, a yearling BoerXKiko wether, his 3-4 month sister, and a yearling ND doe. There was a ND buck with gem when we picked them up, the buck kept jumping the dance. She said they had been together for part of the summer, but I don't know how long that...
  2. Waiting Room
    I've been trying to look this up, but I'm hoping for maybe something more specific. I have three, possibly four, girls waiting to kid. The one that is questionable is who my questions are about. Garnet is a Pygmy/ND mix. She is 13 months old. She has been exposed to two different males for...

  7. Goats For Sale
    Gray, long haired ND/Pygmy mix buck of uncertain age-Rufus; he was a 'rescue' off of craigslist and a package deal with two other Pygmy does. He does have horns and has not been descented. He's been with our females since the beginning of Nov and has performed as expected. He's a smart one...
  8. Goat Frenzy
    I have two goats doelings, both are 8 months old but on the small side. They were kept separate from bucks for to prevent unwanted pregnancies. But my husband did witness the males out and around the female enclosure. The females had there hindquarters pressed up against the wall of their...
