The Nubians in general tend to be less smart than some of the other breeds. The Nigerians are WAY TOOOOO SMART! They seem to be able to get out of anything. This is why I like the MiniNubians so much - They are just as cute as the Nubians (if not more), but are not as stupid as the Nubians and not too smart like the Nigerians. They are the perfect cross between the two breeds. You get the best of both worlds with the MiniNubian!jBlaze said:Not a nubian. I have had goats of many breeds in my time, and the nubians are sweet and needy, and a little on the stupid side. I know many floks just love them, but not I. I mean no offense! Have you ever tried to back up a nubian? They are like sheep and can't figure it out. Yes, I am not just talking a few dumb ones, I have worked with many.
