  1. Bucks
    Hello I’m new to the group and fairly new to goat breeding. I just bought a mini Nubian buckling. A buck that I have been looking for for over a year. My plan was to breed him to my Nigerian does, but now I am worried about size difference and hurting my does. Thank you all in advance for any...

    Hey everyone. I have two young twin does (Mini Nubians) that I’d love for a more experienced goat keeper to look at. I need some conformation-related advice. I DEFINITELY have a favorite and am leaning towards keeping and breeding her, but my favoritism is based mostly on personality and...
  4. Beginners Goat Raising
    Being still pretty new to goatkeeping, I am trying to decide which direction to go breed-wise for my herd. I have a registered Mini Nubian doe and her two registerable doelings, and they are adorable and friendly and I love them. I also have a mostly Alpine grade doe we got as a bottle baby (she...

    Hi! I have a breeding pair of Nigerian dwarf, and a "bred" mini-nubian doe. I feed primarily hay, and forage, and have been feeding a little bit of organic pellets at night (as incentive to get them in the barn). My TSC has not been selling them anymore, so I am looking for a good pellet to...
  6. Beginners Goat Raising
    This is my new muni nubian, I just purchased. Am told she is going to kid in 2-6 weeks. She seems thin to me. I am very inexperienced. I have 2 nigerian dwarfs, but they have only been with me since spring, and are my first goats. Do you all think she look healthy?

    Hello!! So glad I found TGS and look forward to reading and learning more about goats! I have kept goats as pets on and off for years and always toyed with the idea of breeding and milking, so this year I got a Mini-Nubian/Nigerian Dwarf doe in milk and fell in love! She joined the 3 current...
  8. Mini Mania
    Hi all, first off let's get this out of the way... I'm in Canada, the east coast to be exact. I've been breeding mini nubians for about 8 years now, and I'm desperately searching for a new buck but mini nubians are few and far between up here, so I'm wondering who ships and what's available...

    I just got into goats this year helping a friend whose goats had 35 kids. I got one of the Nubian doelings that had a *M dam and a *B sire. I also got a 1st generation Mini Nubian bucklings that bonded to me and would only let me feed it a bottle. A few months later I had the opportunity to get...
