    Hello everyone, We just received a 2-month old LaMancha mix buckling yesterday who unfortunately has a parrot mouth. Pictures attached. I'll spare you the details of how he ended up with us, in short the previous owner lied and I, being a first time goat buyer, wasn't able to recognise the...

    Based on temperament and ability to keep in fencing, which breed do you recommend the most? What have been your experiences with each breed and their temperament and milk production? Any reoccurring health issues you’ve had?

    We've been waiting for her for several weeks; Here she is! Her name is Jasmine, but we call her Minnie - even though she is our only full sized goat. We already have a mini named Jasmine. So, Jasmine is a mini and the other Jasmine is not a mini, but we call her Minnie. Confused yet? Me...

    Hi! I am new on here, at least new as a member, have been reading posts for awhile. I need some assistance in tattooing ADGA kids. I get the general 'gist' and have read the ADGA link on tattooing but it still doesn't make sense to me. For whatever reason, lol. So I was assigned a three...

    Hello, I'm new to the goat spot and having goats in general. My husband, my stepdaughter and myself have adopted four bottle babies. Two of them are Nubians, and two of them are Lamanchas. All are does except for one, who is a Nubian buck. I've been spending an immense amount of time with them...

    Hi everyone, my name is Andrea and my husband and I are new proud parents to four Lamancha baby's. We've had them for about 6 weeks now. They all range in age from 6 weeks to 9 weeks old. They are such sweet boys and we are having the time of our lives with them. I was so happy to stumble...

    I am buying the Rhinehart x30 from ValleyVet. The tip size options are 3/8" for "small kids," or .55" for "kids and calves." I have standars Lamanchas, plan to disbud between 4-9 days old. What size would be best?

    My 2 Lamancha doelings from 2 different farms. The little white one is (supposedly) 5 months old and the bigger one is 4 months old. The bigger one is 1/4 Nubian, but I dont think this accounts for the incredible size difference. I havent weighed the big one I assume she weighs 50+ pounds, but...

    Woo, boy howdy, it's been a hot minutes since I've been around the forum! I'm here now because it come to a time where I have questions again that I think would best be answered where experience can be found.

    I have a doe who's due in about a month. She's been having some brown discharge for the past day or so, and I'm getting really worried that she aborted/miscarried/has an infection. What do you guys think? The discharge looks like it has dirt in it which is possible, it has no smell that I...
  11. Beginners Goat Raising
    So I'm going through my first kidding season this year and I think one of my goats may be bagging up, but I have no idea. She's a first time freshener about a month out from her due date. There's really not much going on with her udder, just a tiny bump 1 inch in height at best, but it does feel...

  13. Dairy Diaries
    I have a 1/2 LaMancha mix doe that I'm interested in registering with NOA. Are there any ADGA members (or non-members) that are familiar with the breed standards and LaManchas that could give their opinion? Thanks. I'm not very familiar with the ADGA and the options for registering... even...

    I am considering purchasing this Lamancha. She is a Possum Hollow Farm Doe, I will include a pic of her papers. Thoughts on her lineage, conformation, etc would be very helpful. She is a 3 year old due to kid in one month. She dam raised her kid last year and her owner just skimmed a quart off...

    Hiho Folks, I have a lovely little LaMancha doe that we'll be breeding this fall. I know of 2 large LaMancha herds near us and I've seen several random does here and there at the fairs. I have never seen a Munchie with Electra's coloring. [/URL][/IMG] I would LOVE to keep the spots in her...
  16. Beginners Goat Raising
    We just recently bought a 9 month old Lamancha doe, and she is only 23 inches tall. We've read that they should be at least 28 inches tall. Our question is, what age will she be full grown? Will she grow much more, or is she going to be a tiny goat? We don't care if she is tiny, as she was going...

    We just leased a reg LaMancha buck to bring home for our does. One of our does is very excited and jumping on board with "the plan." The other doe is reluctant...not very interested....and being bullied terribly by this buck. I have several questions. Is it possible that the reluctant doe...

    Hi! I am possibly getting 2 Lamancha Nubian kids and I am planning on milking one of them. I have a few questions about milking. 1.) Do I have to have a special chilling mixer thing? or can I just strain it? 2.) How can I store it without it tasting "goaty" after 5-6 days? I am going to be...
