    Looking into doing fodder for my goats (2 ND does, 2 LaMancha does, 2 ND bucks). What i want is to at the very least replace the grains i feed them daily, and at most replace the hay i have to buy them. Our goats have access to foraging on our property. I can't find how much of what type of...

    Hi there! My 6 mo old ND buck has had my 3 y/o ND doe in with him during the day since the weekend (they spent a few days getting to know each other and now snuggle and play together happily). This morning my doe is obviously in heat, she's standing for him, trying to entice him, and he's...

    Well it's beginning to look like we're going to bite the bullet and get our own herd sire (driveway dating is not working out for our girl haha). We have a separate barn and pasture where we'll house our buck and (after his quarantine ends) our wether. I've been searching around but haven't been...

    Sooo... I have a 5 month old buckling. Last time a weighed him he was 25 pounds i believe which was about 2 weeks ago, and i agree, hes a bit skinny, i bought him that way, but i would guess he has gained 5-7 pounds since then. I plan on weighing in the morning. Anyways! When is a good time...

    Hi, My 10wk old alpine bucks are both having issues with their horns. I got them when they were 8wks, both had slightly flaky horns when I picked them up but I figured it was normal/a sign of having been sick (both had sore mouth at 4 weeks old, were clear for over a week before I picked them...
  8. Birth Announcements
    We had a lovely spring blizzard this past week. It left us without power, phone, water or internet for a few days. And, of course, that's when Jasmine kidded. She did her work without so much as a grunt - so mellow! It was definitely the least "dramatic" birth we've ever had here. She...

    Background: I have four Nigerian Dwarf does and one buck (plus a Boer baby, but he doesn't factor into breeding!:P) Three of the ladies will be one in April. I plan on breeding two of them this May and one the following fall. The last I will wait until next spring because she had a setback after...

    I have heard differing opinions on whether or not the chances of girl kids are increased or decreased the more or less time a doe is with a buck. Is there really any truth to this? Has anybody else had experience with it? Thanks in advance.

    Hello everyone, I wanted to see if anyone else has dealt with something like this! I have a 2 year old Nigerian Dwarf buck who has ZERO interest in my does. I had planned on using him as a yearling but thought that maybe his lack of interest was because he was too young. Unfortunately as a 2...

    I have not sold my buckling yet and he is 2mos old. I am afraid he is 'chasing' his aunts! When can I move him into a pen with his father, and how? should I do it slowly, like have them spend a day together. My buck has a wether friend and is housed away from my girls. Thanks
  15. Goat Frenzy
    I currently have a nigerian buckling and a wether. The buckling is on the small size. Next year I also want to get a few mini-nubians so i want a mini-nubian buck. Would it be unfair to throw a bigger buck in with my little gentlemen? Or do you think both my nigi wether and nigi buck could...

    This is our first breeding season. Mine and my husband's, not our goats first season. We had bought two bucks for breeding, and lo and behold, all three pregnant does each had one buck (we were hoping for does). Each male has his own unique bark for the ladies and it is cracking me and my...
