    Money and land are no longer an obstacle. :fireworks: You can have as many goats as you want, providing of course you can physically handle them. What breeds would you wish for? How many? I'll start.

    I know I can't handle too many but since I can have anything I want..................

    I want a dwarf collection :drool:

    Pygmy, Nigi, Myotonic, Kinder, Mini Nubian, and the Mini Saanen, I'd like two of each along with a Nigi and a Pygmy buck.

    I also like Boers, they're big but I love their conformation. I would like the solid black, red, and the standard white w/red head, two of each please. One boer buck will do. :gift:

    I can dream can't I ? :shrug:


    Next.....

    An unregistered herd of minis (nigerians and pygmies) then some registered nigerian dwarfs. My own bucks

    I would love to have a separate herd of nubians and lamanchas - not sure about a buck for them.

    Then I would want some mini nubians

    And of course I would need land and a nice barn for them :D

    OK, I'll play along. I think I'd like some Nubians. I had one long ago and she was fantastic. Of course I'd keep my Nigerians, but I'd add some more does...and another buck. I've thought about the Saanens, but I like the color variations of the Alpines...but someone said they have attitude so maybe not. And, I'd keep my fiber goats (Pygora, Cashmere), because I'm going to learn to spin...no really, I am! This is fun, Di

    I would have a huge, beautiful barn with a heated milk room and a huge lush pasture. I would have a herd very nice Alpines, and my nigis too. I would love to become a top breeder also!! That is my dream!

    Oh boy. I would have a bunch of ND's, Mini manchas, Fainters and a few mini nubians and boers.
    They would have tons of land and tons of toys to run and jump on. The barn would be huge and would have a heated milking room. Oh and I would have hot water in the barn as well as cold water.

    Here goes nothing;

    My barn is gigantic, like 40 ft by 50 ft. My bedroom is in there, of course because I want to be with my goats all the time. I have my current goats, my Dog Riley and three or four Great Pyrenees to protect the goats from all evil. My barn has tons of kidding stalls, a milk parlor and food storage room. The whole barn is heated, plumbed and wired for electricity. We live on the East Coast. I own 100 acres for the goats to run and play on, that's got so much good stuff to eat. With willow trees, and rose bushes, and a pretty little creek running through the whole property. I have 15 Nigerian dwarf goats, 13 does and 2 bucks. And a couple Alpines, not to mention Holly, Aspen, Clover, Thomas and Indy. Oh and there's a lake. Oh and I have a my current horses.


    HEAVEN!

    Here I go again :horse: ............................................................ :drool: .

    I forgot to mention my myotonic buck ("meaty" kids) and 2 mini sables as well. Let's see that's 4 bucks and 22 or is it 24 does? I'd better not go over 30. :help:

    I'd like 5 acres of lush forage in the South, I'm with Stacey, I want :sun: . I want state of the art equipment (milking stands, kidding pens, feeders, etc for ease of care and I would like to have a kidding every month or two just because it's fun. :leap:



    :ZZZ:

    OOOO, What fun!!!

    I want a herd of 12 registered myotonic does and 3 registered bucks...different colors and blue eyes.

    I want a small herd of registered and unregistered boer goats and boer crosses...about 6 does and 1 buck.

    Then I want my commercial herd....about 20 does and maybe 2 bucks....

    I want about 20 acres and possibly a hay barn. I want plenty of kidding stalls for all my goats and some breeding pens.

    I dont mind feeding my goats out of troughs or pans but I want no waste hay racks invented....we all know a goat's favorite thing to do is waste hay :roll:

    I would like heated buckets in every pasture and pen....including my kidding stalls....I want a creep feeder pen for the kids

    Man I want too much!

    I wish for a nice big barn, with nice LaManchas and Oberhaslis that come from great lines and that are high appraising and top tens. Maybe a National Champion or two. I wish for a nice big milk parlor thats heated, and a thing were kids feed themselves.

    Of course we can dream :D

    ooh - I would love this - some of every breed in the world, and to educate people on them, and to be able to hire persons with disabilities and teach them in the care. I would have all the different kinds of alpines, nubies, togs, saanens, Lamanchas, fainters, mini nubies, nigerians, pygmies, Kiko's , Oberhasli, Boers, - how many breeds are there?
