    I just wanted to add I love Brush Creek lines to, but the owner of these lines has since passed away. I have alittle buck this year that im using in my breeding program that his dad is a brush creek goat, and his grandpa on his mom's side is to. Turning out to be a really nice looking buck. We shall see in the show ring this next year.

    Well I'd have to say Gerle Ranch in Minot North Dakota,, 4 goats that came from there were given to me by a lady who purchased them from that ranch and I just fell in love with them,, on the way to town one day I saw the sign .,,stopped in for a chat and got hooked on Nigerians,,
    I bought a sister to one of the does I have now and am going back for more..
    The lady who runs the place has mentored me and has dehorned my kids for me and has generally been my hero of sorts lately..
    These are my first goats ever ,,, i always wanted some but didnt know that much about them or how many types of goats existed..
    After getting these first for I accepted 4 more giveaways from someone else nearby and got a beautiful 1/2 nigerian buck that i'd known since he was pretty small..
    He is part feinting goat and i dont know if I'll be letting go of him yet to get a full nigerian buck but i know that is what i'll eventually do..
    I dont know of any other breeders in the area so i'll just sail along with what i got... nice to meet you folks..

    I have 2 that are out of the Brush Creek lines....and have actually seen my doe's dam, Brush Creek Journey. Some of the lines behind my goats are very hard to find anymore as the original herd breeders have either passed away or sold out.
    I really like what the up and coming Nigi breeders are doing with their herds and the individual improvements they have done with already great lines. Laurel Haven, End of the Line, Phoenix Rising, Tukswitt, SGM, Honey Hollow.....and so many more that I can list!

    I hope to be able to one day do what all of you have done and breed for the capacity of udders and those long lean little bodies.

    Based on their websites, pictures, and wins: I like the look of a lot that have been named. DragonFly, Twin Creeks, Rosasharn, Old Mountain, Buttin Heads

    Just SOME of the one's I've found that I like on thegoatspot:

    SDK - good program with improvements each generation.
    Proctor Hill has some nice goats
    End of The Line
    And lots more - the trend here that I love is that many of the users care so much for the condition and care of their animals that they make an effort to breed nice goats!


    BrandyWine...Some beautiful does. My buck is from here.
    Castle Rock...O>M>G lol have a doe from here
    Hoofin It...has a handful of really nice does. I like Cha Cha and Tumbleweed. Have a doe from here.
    Copper Penny...Never met Penny, but I hear she is wonderful. I have seen her lines and they are very nice and dairy. I have two does bred by her that carry a different herd name.
    I consider SDK local. She has lines related to the buck at Hoofin It, the sire of my doe. Very nice program, as I said before. A good choice for future purchases :)
    Adobe Acres...haven't bought from them, but would like to some day!

    I'll post more if I think of them!

    i have not bought any goats from anyone listed, but they all seem to have beautiful herds. :) (check out her goatie toys/houses)

    and of course: {these farms are the first two farms I found online that were close to where I live... i spent HOURS looking at the goats and reading about them here! :) So thanks for being a great resource! }

    I think most of my favorite herds are listed already...but I 2nd (3rd, 4th??) the vote for Dragonfly farms. I'm getting a buck from Joanne next year...hoping for a Chiarascuro son :pray: . I'd also have to add:

    Agape Oaks:
    Pam is in Texas and she has some gorgeous animals, as well as top lines. I have a doeling from her and she is very dairy and pretty...though the pics on website don't do her justice!

    Joyful Hearts Farm:
    She is in Southern Ca. and has really worked on building a very quality herd of Nigerians.

    Desert Nanny:
    She has some very quality goats as well

    Oh...I guess I'd have to say Roc N Ewe as well since my buck is from there!

    And Amanda...thank you for the nice compliments...I'm blushing :oops:

    Lance Krog of Avian Acres in conjunction with Heidi Geutschoff of Heidi's Mini Acres--both very nice stock & great people with a lot of their stock originating from your favorite herds
    Julie Shere of Shere Country Ranch
    ~Karen Las Pelican Acres
    My favorite goats in my herd contain a lot of Deb's Whisperwoods, Twincreeks, Sugar Creek, Piddlin Acres, Lost Valley, & Gay-Mors so hat's off to all of those breeders that have worked so hard & I will continue to work hard to keep producing those legacys going of great milk production & body types!
