Pretty goaties! Your doe looks to have some nigerian dwarf in her by looks of her legs...and she isn't that old right? I'm guessing less than 2 21/2 by her horns...if she'll let you...most of mine learned quick when they had their faces in the grain dish....you may be able to milk her and use it...if she has never been bred this is called a precocious udder...it's all hormonal...some does only make a thin watery looking "milk" due to the hormonal changes...others will produce "real" milk.


By the way..I see that she likes your door step...my Pygmy/ND Bootsie hangs out on my back porch every chance she gets!

Yea she is only about 2 years old she will be in january. yea i think she might have a little bit of nigereane in her but i got her from the local feed store so no telling whats in her. same with the boer cross wether .she has never been bred but hofely i can breed her with a freinds male pygmy buck. then i can start milking her . im lactoentoleret so i wonder if goat milk would be better.

Yeah maybe milk a couple squirts out of her to see if it's a precocious udder or not. And if it is, breed her wait till she kids and THEN milk her. =D
