  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    I’m trying to get two of my does bred for spring kidding, and this is my first time trying to really plan things out (previously I just had my buck sharing a pasture with my two does, and when breeding season rolled around they got bred, and then I had to guess when they might kid and move them...
  2. Mini Mania
    I got this for last April, can anyone tell me what breed she is? Sixteen months and fourtyseven pounds.
  3. Waiting Room
    Hello, I am new here. I have 2 goats. Male & female. My husband fixed our male goat. However, we are new to raising goats and I'm almost positive he left a testicle behind. Reason being, our female appears to be pregnant. She has never kidded before, she has developed udders. I am able to...
  4. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello! I have 3 goats, 1 year in age, 2 female 1 male... Not sure their breed, hoping someone out there can help us out! The dog in the pics is an average sized pitbull to give you an idea of their size (and don't worry, she's very friendly). Thanks!

    I've been meaning to do this sense I signed up. About a week before thanksgiving we found a little and I mean little (1.7#) puppy out on the highway she couldn't walk, was cold. We warmed her up fed her and all that. We took her to the dog fostering friend who couldn't take her. So we took her...

    does anyone have a chart showing the growth rate of the horns for different goat breeds? Also it would be cool to see a chart of goat horn shapes per breed.
  7. Goat Frenzy
    We purchased a goat and I am curious to see what people think she might be. She is 4 years old and is measuring 24 inches. We were told she is Nigerian Dwarf. She is a doll though. The brown one in front. :ponder:
  8. Regional Forums
    Searching desperately for a Nubian or Boer buck to breed my Nubian does to in Whatcom County. I can't seem to find anyone that will respond on their websites and most people seem to be South of Seattle. Really prefer to not haul my girls so far. They have never been bred and are 2 years old...
  9. Goat Management
    I was just wondering what others do logistically when it comes to taking kid reservations. Do you start taking reservations as soon as she's been bred? Or wait a couple months until confirming pregnancy by testing or keeping track of estrus cycles? Last year was our first year breeding...
  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    So I have attached some pictures of our new goat named Charity. We have had her for about a week and she just had babies yesterday. We were told she was nigerian dwarf but I'm starting to wonder if she really is. What do you guys think?
  11. Kidding Koral
    Hi! I want to breed my two 4 year old Nigerian Pygmy girls. I found a beautiful buck but what does it entail? I believe the does go to the bucks residence but for how long usually? What is proper payment? Do I need to be aware of anything? All help is appreciated. Thank you
  12. Goat Management
    Ok, I have my two does, I got for milk . One will be a year old in may, the other turned a year this month. The one who is already a year old, has had 3 heard so far. I can't tell if the other has or not, she might just be silent about it. What is the next step ? Tests? Can I order the tubes and...
  13. Goat Frenzy
    I bought three new goats back in early November. A buck, Hershey, who is 2, and two does, Almond and Kisses, who are around a year and a 1/2. Hershey was said to be a kiko/pygmy buck. Almond and Kisses are sisters and were said to be Saanen/mix. They aren't white though. Kisses (one with...

    I know this sounds like a goofy question! Here's a little history... We started our herd with four Nigerian Dwarf goats from the same farm. We would bring the does back to their "original" farm and let them board there for a month, where they would stay with an unrelated buck to be bred...
