    Hello All,
    I started with Nigerian wethers last year and now I am hooked and thinking about breediing in the future. I'm kind of scared. :?
    My one girl had a boy in March, but at 4 weeks he passed away. I dont know why and today I lost my favorite spotted Nubian at 5 weeks old. :(
    I don't feel I did anything wrong, but it's very hard to see them die when you love them so much.
    Well on to the good stuff. I have mini nubians, mini nigerians, silky fainter and 2 nigoras.
    Most of mine are blue eyed too and small. As you can see I am hooked.
    I live in the country and moved here 2 years ago and still dont know anyone outside of my Vet so I am glad to find this website. :)

Hope you find us all very "talkative" and I hope that thru reading the posts here you may be able to find out what happened with your little ones...it's tough I know, but sometimes figuring out what happened helps others in a similar situation. BTW, WE ALL LOVE PICTURES OF .....WELL...GOATS!! and just about anything else too!

    Hi from northern California and welcome. You might see if there is a dairy association in your area that meets. That is one way of making local contacts. Pretty much I have found that there is almost always a helpful person in those associations. Someone who would understand your addiction.
    By the way, since you are in such a different area than mine, I don't know if this might be a problem for you but I do Cocci preventative treatments with my little one. For me Cocci can be a problem and the young ones can so easily succumb to it and it can happen fast. The older goats usually not.

    Welcome to TGS, we love new members, and pics!

    I lived near (not too near) Atlanta, a loooong time ago. Great weather, I moved from Iowa, in the fall, I washed my car, outside, on my BD (mid January)! I thought I was in heaven. :sun:
