    I have a purebred registered nubian doe Nellie. I have had her a year and she will kid the second time [first time she aborted] in March. I want to know more about her lines. I am asking because of the place we got her. We got her in a drop off pen in a very awful local sale barn. Drop off pens for people to put there animals who are not in that sale where they are loaded on a trailer and shipped to another auction to be sold for slaughter. She and her sis were crammed in a little pen with a bunch of meat lambs. I walked by the pen and as soon as I saw her I knew I wasn't leaving without her. After a while, I found out she was for sale for $100! And I had $95 in my pocket! So she came home with us. [Her sis found a good home too.] She was so sweet and very tame. We found out she was a pet someone just got rid of. I don't get it. She is very special. As soon as I got her out of the drop off pen I looked in her ears and saw tatoos! Within a month she was in my name. Anyway, her reg. name is Herd in the Valley Eula. I don't know much on bloodlines so could you check out the ADGA pedigree search and tell me what you think?

    Im not as familiar with nubian lines as i am with some of the other dairy breeds. She was born in 05 which puts her at three years old this year.
    Here is her ADGA genetics page

    She has a lot of the older bloodlines in her. The Hoanbu goats in her pedigree are some of Holly's older bloodlines, so none of the Kastdemur's/LakeShore stuff that she is using now is in there. DSD: Hoanbu Tamoon Charm Galilea just passed away in April last year. She was a very dairy doe....here is some pics of her: http://www.hoanbu.com/Lea I can't find much on SD: RISIN' CREEK SUNDAE'S TRINITY...her one daughter was 6th place Sr. Yearling at the 06' Nationals.

    Can we see some pics of her? What is the pedigree of the buck she is bred to?

    It just amazes me how nice animals can wind up on a meat truck. Its the same with horses. Really nice horses can wind up on meat trucks. Such a shame but I'm glad you were able to save her!

    I know! I don't understand why her previous owner would do that. There are many other ways to get rid of goats. Like the local paper or the internet! Those are free!

    Sometimes people are ina crunch. I had a lady come up to me at the feed store the other day (i guess somone had pointed me out as bein a goat person) and she asked if i knew of anyone that wanted three free goats. She had to get rid of them by tuesday and it was friday. I told her to post them on the board at both feed stores. I don;t know if she ever had any luck finding homes for them they were moving to alaska and couldn't take the goats. They may have ended up at the auction.
