Well, here they are
First: Danielle (tan & white) and Jacqueline (black-or rust!-and beige), our main milkers.
Got them at nine months old, bred; once they kidded, we started milking and have been doing it ever since!

Third: Danielle's doeling from this year, from a very nice registered Nubian buck. Fiona She's my favourit of this year's crop. She has an amazingly sweet personality. We sold her twin bro.

Now for Suzi- She's an american alpine I believe- back then we were uniformed, and when they said "purebred Alpine" we assumed French. We may not keep her forever, as we'd like to stick with F.A. and Nigerian for now.

Suzi's a milker as well, and she produces well and has very nicely milkable teats, but she's always been a bit shy. And she's got a bit of an attitude that earned her the name "Sassy" before we got her. ;)
Personally, I like any milk goats to be very friendly and calm on the stand.

Oh, and sorry the picture of Heidi is blurry. She made it hard to get a good one, and I coudn't see very well since the sun was so bright.

I had to log out quickly earlier, just wanted to say thanks everybody. And we're working on getting them all in better condition. The alpines are a bit thin.I'm still working on what to feed them that's good for them and affordable- or at least reasonable- and I haven't worked out all the kinks yet.There are so many factors: what's available near you, organic or not, testing the hay, prices, can we grow it? Just trying to do whats works best here. :)



Oh and sorry for all the misspells; I was trying to get all the pics up quickly. :)


And P.S. I may be getting two more Nigerian does soon; one bred, and one with a kid. But not sure yet, I'm really excited and hoping!!! :D
