    I'm not sure where to post this, but I'm new to the forum :leap: I'm here to learn more about goat care and starting a small farm with them. I currently have 2 Nigerian dwarf does. But I want to breed Boer goats for meat and show, and I also am wanting to learn more about dairy goats, Nubian's in particular.

    Hi, im newer to the group also. I have a nubian and am getting 2 more this week so spot has some buddies. I love love love my nubian but the expereince with mine is they need lots and lots of attention. He is big, lovable, extremely dedicated, smart and overall a hoot. everyone loves him. My goat is lazy in the sense that he only eats when im out there with him. i go in... he clocks out... no more land clearing. Hopefully getting him two buddies to eat with will keep him wanting to eat when im inside:)

    I also have 6 dogs and 3 horses.
