  1. Goat Frenzy
    Well we picked up our two kinder doelings today. They're kinda freaked out and the lighting in my barn is rather bad for photos, so I will try and get you some good pictures tomorrow. Their names are Belladonna (or just Bella) and Primula (or just Prim). Bella is all black, and she is real...

    About a week ago, I finally got my goats! They are pregnant and are due late December/early January! Can't wait to have some new babies on the farm :) Luna is trying to get the treats and Diamond is in the background.
  3. Beginners Goat Raising
    Alright, as some of you might know I was going to wait until spring to get my first goats, but I should have seen this coming, turns out I am very impatient and once I have started something I like to complete it before I move on. So getting goats is all I really can think about right...
  4. Beginners Goat Raising
    Just brought home three new Nigerian Dwarves. They are perfect! But... One was spoiled rotten, kept mostly inside, and bottle-fed. The person we got him from said he came out weak and that's why. Anyways, he's never spent a night outside and needs to still be bottle-fed. He's 2 months old...

    We got the boys (3 ND's/9wks old) home yesterday afternoon. They also came with bad scours/diarrhea. One has cleared up overnight, the 2nd one is still runny, & the 3rd one is VERY runny. Poop is all standard brown in color. I have cleaned up all rear ends to watch & prevent fly issues...

    I went to an auction yesterday and got some new goats! :dance: First I got a 8 day old bottle baby LaMancha buckling who I have named Chomper, he earned his name :-). Then my mom bought a 8 week old Boer wether who has not been named yet, I'm open to name suggestions. We plan on eating him...
  8. Goat Management
    Hello, I just got three little nigerian does last night. This is my first time with goats. We live on a .5 lot on the county line (we are county). I have chickens too, several fruit trees, and a garden. Unfortunately, within 2 minutes the back neighbor (on his tiny subdivision lot) was yelling...
  9. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello! My BF and I recently got our first goat, a Nigerian Dwarf doeling. She is adorable and sweet and we are in love with her. In our research prior to getting her, we read that while getting at least 2 goats was recommended - it was possible to get just one if enough attention was paid...

    I recently brought home 2 myotonic (fainting) goats. They are wethers that are 4.5 months old. I have no experience with goats and am following what the breeder told me to do. I currently am feeding them 1/2 bucket Chaffhaye in the am and 1/2 bucket Chaffhaye in the evening with a 1/2c...

    Woo-hoo! My fabulous, amazing, wonderful friend, is going to do a trade with me. She is the one person that has been ever so helpful through our journey of animals, birth, death, and all those other things that come along with the short word simply called "farming". We have gotten most of...
