    Welcome to The Goat Spot!

    Yes, Obers can be hard to find. Do you have an ADGA member directory? If so, you could look in there. Good luck on your search. :)

    I found my Obers. Purchased two purebred Oberhasli only 45 minutes away to be delivered after they kid next month. Now I have to build the barn, fence and get everything ready for them.
