    Hi Everyone!
    It is soooo refreshing to find a site with such wonderful people and goat info. Thanks for letting me be a part of it!

    I am Robin Kralik from Northern Alabama....about 45 miles north of Birmingham and only an hour from the Tennessee border. I am retired from website development and design and now I am a Hot Glass Artist and spend most of my time either in the goat pen or behind the torch melting glass. I usually sell my beads from my website or on EBay. It is a great hobby! I have two daughters and one grand daughter....and a wonderful Hubby who is a manager for AT&T.

    My family and I raise Nigerian Dwarfs, a couple Mini Nubians, and Show/breeding Boers.
    We're hoping to begin our kidding season near the first of March...can't wait! We have around 11 Nigerians (want more) and 12 Boers including a champion herdsire.

    I've placed my website addresses in my signature link in case anyone is curious about us.
    Thanks Again for this place!
    Robin

    Welcome to The Goat Spot Robin!! Nice to meet you. I'm a Boer breeder as well focusing on raising them for show and breeding. I already checked your Boer webite out, you've got some nice goats there. Your Herdsire looks super! Glad to have you here!

    Robin, welcome!! I wanted to tell you that I looked at your websites. They are beautifully designed!!! Very impressive. They are so nice and very attractive!

    Secondly, those beads that you make are absolutely gorgeous. Just beautiful! You are very creative. My favorites are the Lentil Bright, Key Lime Pie, and Tangerine Smoothie. They are so pretty!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    The bead making is really fun. I enjoy being able to be at home working.

    The websites are fun too...now that I don't have to upkeep and maintain 30 of them at once...it seems like a vacation.
    Off to read more

    Welcome to the Goat Spot, Robin! It is good to see another MiniNubian breeder here. I love the goats from Spots of Sandale, and your does are sooo pretty! I am a sucker for color. :D I hope you will post pictures of their MiniNubian babies!

    We have some great family friends that live near Huntsville, AL. We may be going down to visit them this fall.

    Thanks Guys!
    I have to agree. I am sooo lucky to have the Spots of Sandale does. And they are incredibly sweet!! . We just purchased a Nubian buck from her that is spotted like our does. I can't wait to have babies.

    Hubby likes them too...he said he was going to switch from boers to Nubians. He really likes their personalities.

    I just looked at Eliya's site. Man I wish I could buy that little Lynn doe....she is a looker for sure!
    Eliya; if you come to Huntsville you should visit me...I am only an hour away!

    Which buck did you buy from her? Do you have pics? I have always wanted one of her does, they are so pretty! I can't wait to see what the babies would look like, I bet they would be sooo cute.:)

    Gorgeous buckling! He looks like a real sweetheart. That face just looks so sweet. Of course the spots are GREAT!

    I'm glad that you like Lyn. I really love her myself. It was hard to decide which of Ivory's doelings to keep - they are both so nice.

    I would love to visit you if we get to Huntsville! I will just have to try to convince the rest of the family... :)
