I've been doing quite a bit of research on goats and figure that Nigerians Dwarfs would probably be the breed for our family to start with. But I'm getting some conflicting information on some issues and wanted yall's opinions on the matter. I guess I should start with my intentions... I want to have relatively docile, small milk goats that won't over power my tiny 4'11" frame and that my kids can help with (they'e 10, 7, 5 and 1 but I think the baby will lend mostly moral support). I would like to be able to show them in adult shows and have my kids show in 4h and other junior comps. I know that I should start small but still have enough to keep each other company, so maybe 2 or 3 does at first. But I'm also thinking I should get a buck to show and breed to them. If we close on the house we're buying, we'll have enough room. It has two pastures and a barn. Plus ample space to build a buck pen/shelter, kidding pens, etc. I've been told and have read that Nigerians are so easy to handle that even a beginner can usually handle a buck. But today I read that newbies should avoid bucks at all costs, though this advice wasn't specific to the breed, but to all goats in general. So I was wondering, what are yall's opinion on a beginner having a ND buck?
