    I'm new to this blog and to goats. We live outside Nashville.

    Cameo and Sweetie (old Nigerian Dwarfs) joined our family this August at 3 months.

    We also have 11 children (only 2 boys left at home now), 3 miniature horses, two prys, 3 barn cats and 2 house kittens.

    I'm thinking of getting a couple of Neubians next spring for milk (I heard its hard to milk the tiny girls). Looking forward to talking goats with you all.

    welcome from Idaho :wave: Glad that you found us!!

    About the milking -

    I have milked my Alping cross (standard) and my Nigerians - and yes, to me the Alpine was definately "easier" but I got really good milk production from my Nigerian. It is just a time thing for me!

    Can't wait to "see" you around the boards!

    Hi Robin and welcome....pretty little nigi's! And you are truly BLESSED to have such a large family....the mini horse is adorable!

    I milk my mini's and though it does take some getting used to with smaller teats, practice makes perfect! I milked 3 does 2x a day for 4 months this past year and all 3 with the basics only took me 20 minutes.....and the milk is awesome! I was getting just over 2 quarts a day from my nigi and just under from my pygmy/nigi crosses. Can't wait to see "more ' of you....hope you enjoy being here. :wave:
