    What breed of goats do you have?
    Variety, pet, or breeding goats?

    I have alpines now, still by far my favorite of all the goats i have owned. The nubians were too loud, lamanchas not as personable. My saanes were always off in their own little world. I love the upright ears and dished faces over floppy ears and roams noses. and i love all the colors they come in.
    Of coure a kid of any breed will win my heart.

    Okay, I'll add the breeds to the poll, then we'll start over. What other breeds are missing?

    I have LaManchas and one Alpine. I keep them for pets/dairy.

    My Alpine wether is cart trained and we've actually used him to haul a bit of firewood...and pull us on skis, of course. :)

    Nigerian Dwarf and Pygmy goats. They are pets, hobby business (sometimes I make my money back :roll: ) and for milk. :)

    I was disappointed that I could only vote for two breeds. :cry: So, I had to sit here and decide which two breeds to pick, I felt like I was leaving someone out. Poor me!

    I have Alpine, Nubian and Nigerian Dwarfs.
