    I added a MiniNubian doe and her babies to my herd this past weekend. I'm very excited to get them. The doe is a 1st generation MiniNubian from Whispering Pines. The babies (1 boy and 1 girl) are 2nd generation MiniNubians.

    they are really pretty. I think mom looks mini nubian, she has blue eyes how neat! You mayb get some blue eyes kids over the years. Did she have a tag ripped out of ear at one point?
    Which one is the doe kid? i really like the black one. Looks like they have really good ears.

    The white one is the doe kid. I'm not sure what happened to the mom's ear. I didn't ask when I got her. They were born Saturday morning around 9:00am.

    are you going to leave the buck a buck or wether him? It looks like mom had a tag ripped out of her ear.

    They are very pretty...I do agree that mom looks like a kiko but that doesn't mean she is one. Those kids are cute!

    he sure is pretty. I like his color. You don't know anyone that would want him as a buck?

    I didn't mean her looking like a kiko was bad. I have a bunch of them! Just saw the resemblance. You have 2 very cute kiddos. If your buck grows well, you could possibly sell him as a sire.

    I agree that she does look similar to a kiko. (I didn't mind the reference at all) She is a 1st generation MiniNubian and doesn't have the nice Nubian ears like her babies do.
