    Hi Y'all !
    Many of you know that we have dreamed and saved to be able to move to Northeast TN (Greeneville) in the summer of 2013. An opportunity has come up that will allow us to move NOW ! Hubby and I have both been offered positions in Knoxville and we are going to take them. We are both grateful and sad since our house is not ready. I will not be able to take my beloved goats with us. I've tried thinking of a feasible solution but cannot

    We will have to stay in Knox for about 8 months while we work to finish the house and plan to spend the weekends at the house working on it. I can't leave the goats during the week in Greeneville alone (they are SO mischievous LOL and I would be constantly worried about them. We will be staying in a small house in Knox so I can't have them there

    (I’m certainly open to suggestions that would allow me to keep at least a few does and 1 buck LOL )

    I thought I post them here to see if anyone is interested. I have assembled some very good lines that I thought would cross nicely !

    I'm certainly open to that ... I would even pay moderately to board them or have someone go to the house during the weekdays to check them and give water etc ...

    Our farm is in Greeneville, the northeast corner of TN

    Yes, i'd definately be looking at leasing...even free leasing for a year maybe so you can get things settled down and in your new home...just some time to not worry about the goats for awhile. Glad though it sounds like things are working out. :thumb:

    Hi I am in Knoxville area (Sevierville) and could help you out with keeping them on a lease agreement until you settle in. Kori Conner and I are both close to you and we do some trading back and forth and could keep any that you wanted to keep in exchange for either keeping kids out of them or if you like the crosses we could work out trades for the doe. My herd is tested annually and as long as yours was we could pretty much work out accommodations that would allow you to keep your herd and we have alot of lines that compliment each other and/or cross well together.
    Let me know how if we could help in anyway and I am excited to be having another Nigerian breeder in the area, we several ADGA shows in the area and would love to get with someone to do milk testing as well!
