    Hello,

    I live in Western Washington State. I have a small herd for the fun of it and hopefully soon milk for my family.

    The matriarch of my herd is a 4 year old pygmy doe, Caviar. Then there is Trixie the oberhasli doe. Both are due mid March with Nemo's kids, nigerian buck. I also have an oberhasli wether for buck buddy, Hannibal. I recently aquired a nubian doeling (Baby) and 2 mixed breed bottle doelings (Sprite and Willow). They are a mix of nubian, lamancha, alpine and I think ober. I will be getting another ober doeling from the same dairy I got Trixie and Hannibal as soon as one's available. Maybe next year, or the year after, I will get a couple of angora goats for fiber.

    My website has pictures of everyone, all are updated except the obers which are baby pictures. www.estellasgoat.webs.com

    Thanks for the all greetings:)

    I definately need a boer. When I was a teenager my mom had a boer buck that I loved. He was super cuddly and so mellow, but then she got him wethered and he got really depressed after that. I haven't found the right one yet and over extended this year:)

    If you're serious about solid red I know of a few breeders with great stock & reputations.

    Hi Nancy, will you send me an e-mail? The forum won't allow me to private message yet. I am interested in getting a boer in the next year or two and knowing someone somewhat local would be nice:) [email protected]
