    First off, I don't know much about Nubians, especially lines. I mainly wanted the Nubians for extra milk for our house, as well as selling F1 generation Mini-Nubians.

    Could anyone who knows something about Nubian lines take a look at these links? I do see that Jiffypop is an 11*M doe (listed on their ADGA paperwork here) and is their sire's dam. I'm pretty excited about that. I'll have some good pictures tomorrow. They need a lot of help. Some city people bought them as babies from the breeder and fed them nothing but sweet feed. Seriously, I'm 99% sure they've never had hay :chin: They're about 50lbs overweight, as least. I've never seen rolls on a goat, but these ladies are close. lol

    Okay, links.

    Here's Pepper's:

    Here's Ping's:

    Next my question. Breeding related. These does aren't like miniatures, correct? They only come into season in the fall?

    Thanks guys :thumbup:

    Pepper has some pretty good lines on her sire's side, Full Service is a very influential buck if I remember right, the Lynnhaven lines are good too. I don't really recognize anything on her dams side. Ping's dam's line has some Lynnhaven in it as well.

    And yep, they only come in heat in the fall :)

    At least that will give you time to get them in shape. A fat goat is not the best candidate for motherhood.
