    So, little background since I'm new to the forum. We had meat goats when I was a kid, now I have my own mixed bag herd of dairy/dual purpose girls. Nubians, nubian crosses, sables, and a lamancha. All of course in medium to large size. I was completely and totally fine with that, and then I went...
  3. Waiting Room
    Hey y'all. Newbie here with my gals Coco and Zeppy. We're all new to this kidding thing. My girls are FF and Coco is due March 6-7, and Zeppy is due any time between March 6 & April 10. I think Zeppy is likely due between March 13 and 20th though based on heat signs and a messy rear end.

    Is there any significant difference in how interstitial pneumonia presents in a one-month-old kid? Other than dosage, is there a differential in how to treat?

    Hi there! We have Nigerian dwarfs and 3 does on the farm recently had 7 kids! One set of triplets and 2 twins. I started giving the weakest triplet a bottle once -twice/day to help her grow as she kept getting pushed out but then one of the triplets sadly passed away. The one triplet I...

    Hello fellow goat people! I’ve been running into a lot of trouble getting my Nigerian Dwarf (Gracie) bred. We have tried at least 4-5 times to breed her and have had no success. The first couple times we attempted to breed her (Yes, we knew she was in heat) were strange. We drove her to the...

    Hello fellow goat owners! I currently own four goats (including two Nigerian Dwarf does, one Nubian/Pygmy cross whether and another Nubian/Pygmy doe.) as well as a bunch of other different animals on a small homestead in New Jersey, USA. I love goats and I am always looking to learn more about...

    This is more of a rant because without knowing what our fencing looks like, it's unlikely you can help. One of our baby nigerians, Penny, has all of a sudden started escaping. She is 7 months old, so not a tiny little thing. We aren't sure where or how she is getting out. The goat houses are up...

  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    We are new goat owners to 2 adorable Nigerian Goat kids. We were a little late getting them their CDT vaccine (at about 12 weeks old), but we did it. My goat (Ember) was the first to get her shot and we gave it in her armpit. Armpit is what every site I was reading had said. She has been...

  12. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello, We recently bought a buckling and I would like to have him registered but am kind of in a pickle. I know his birthday and have a copy of both his dam and sire's papers but he has changes hands a couple of times before I bought him. The lady who bred him went through a divorce and sold...
  13. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hey, I have 3 nigerian dwarf baby does. They are just over 3 weeks old. Seriously...cutest things I've ever owned (besides my own children). I'm wondering how you train goats though. A lot of their behaviors they currently do can be cute, or just a little annoying. However, I know when they're...

    Hey everyone! I'm VERY new to goats. We just picked up 3 baby does (2 weeks old) nigerian goats this weekend. They seem to be doing well. Active, playing, drinking from the bottle well. I brought them inside this morning to do their morning bottle and one of them proceeded to have a loose...

    My 3 yr old ND doe seems to be losing hair on her rump. When I look at it i see lots of dandruff and dry skin. She is eating hay but is off her feed which is normal for her at this time since it is her heat cycle. But she is shivering a lot because of the hair loss and i'm noticing it thin out...

    So, we are thinking of purchasing our first Nigerian Dwarf goat. We currently have one 6 yr. old Alpine and a 16 mo. old heifer. Could the cow hurt the nigerian because she is smaller? and any tips on introducing a smaller goat to a larger goat?
