    Had a little trouble in the past trying to find a legit breeder to purchase some decent quality ND goats from. I've recently found a breeder just about an hour drive away. Their goats are a little on the pricey side so i just want to share with you the doe i'm considering buying and ask for your opinions on her, pros and cons.
    She's $650, she's just about 2 years old, had her first freshening on 3/29/20 with twin does. owner said she was milking almost 3 lbs per milking, is that good for a nigerian? This is the most recent picture of her i could get, she's dried up now but i'll try and get udder pictures later.
    Thoughts? Her dam is Hollands Haven Belle and her sire is Stonebroke Farm ND Donaghy

    Do you happen to have any udder photos or pics of the sire and dam?

    I like her, her rump could be more level and her withers are high, but her chine is actually very level and I like her body capacity and brisket.

    Nevermind, got the sire and dam pics from their website.

    I like 'em.

    I'd probably buy her if I know I had a good buck to fix her faults.

    Are there actual milk records?
    If they are saying that she averaged 3 lbs over 305 days, then that's pretty good. Actually, really good for a FF.

    I think she looks pretty good. I don't see anything glaring wrong with her.

    I'm not sure the market in NY, but I sell registered doe kids for a minimum of $300. If she has been milk tested that is probably a reasonable price.

    They do have milk records, she's been in milk for 187 days and milked 559 lbs of milk.
    she was milking 3.4 lbs at her peak and milked around 2.6/7 consistently. She also has really high butterfat which is another reason why i'd love to get her,

    I wont be able to bred her this year, but i put down a deposit for a buckling from this pairing.
    dam's due in just 4 days, fingers crossed for a buck! What are your thoughts?

    The only thing i notice is that she is not on level ground so likely her hip would be level with her withers. which in Nigerians is common. shes preety.

    She looks good! Great brisket and body capacity. Rump is a little short. Milk scores are great for a first freshener. Did they finish her lactation? She'd be able to earn her milk star easily at that rate. Her price is on the high side but she has a lot of potential. I'm not familiar with her bloodlines, so no input there.

    Did that pairing produce the buckling you wanted?
