I have mutts :) Mixtures of Nubian/Pygmy/Fainter/, Kinder/Pygmy/Fainter and a touch of Lamancha.Later I will have Saanen/Fainetr/Pygmy. :D

Maybe in the future I will do 50/50's with Nubian and Saanen or Nubian and LaMancha..........but for now we are working with what we could afford and what was available at the time within a decent price range and distance...

I breed registered Nigerian Dwarfs for breeding, show, and milking. The wethers are great for beginner 4H shows and pets :)
Next year I would like to get a Toggenburg or Oberhasli for a little extra milk, and I will also be adding to my Pygmy herd :)

I've just started my Toggenburg herd, so far I only have one doe who we are A.I.ing to her "soul mate". I'm hoping to get on a waiting list for this one herd, and then I hope my doe gives me some nice doe kids. It's a little hard seems how I'm striving for CAE negative herd of Toggenburgs and not many places test that are near me.

great I like the fact of raising and selling. I no for sure that I will sell all of my baby bucks. That is of course once the are weaned. There may be a exception though if the buck is down right beautiful and I have to keep him maybe to breed to a unrelated doe. But other wise all of my bucks are for sale. lol I will sell a good many of my baby does to unless like the buck if she is beautiful and I can breed her to another unrelated buck. Hope this makes since lol.

What ever strikes my fancy. I currently have:

several mixed breeds ( Boer/alpine and her daughter by a LaMancha, boer/kiko/nubian and his daughter out of a Toggenburg)

a few registered goats (Am. Togg, PB Nubian)

and some Mini Nubians.

I'm considering trying to get a doe that my friend has that is mostly Alpine with some Saanen.

I have a couple of different goals with my herd, and like a variety to meet all my needs.
