These goats really work. I use the milk for cheese and soap, and other things. I milk by hand and expect lots of good tasting milk and nice manners on the stanchion.

The Next Adventure: Alpacas

The drive home from Goldendale was interesting...for my son! ha ha!
 
I traded a nice buckling for two darling Alpacas and they are really adorable looking in my barn.I have no idea how to shear them. Or trim their feet. Or their teeth. Or castrate them, which wormer to use...and a dozen other things. But I enjoy learning new things and research is half the fun.
They will live with the goat herd. They're supposed to be good guardians right? Protection against coyotes, of which I have so many? Time will tell. I'll report on that later.
 
  When we got home the horses were curious to know why I had parked my big vehicle in their pasture, right in front of the barn door.
 I don't think the horses are impressed one bit with these two young alpacas. The goats are agreeing with the horses on this one.
My youngest son, however, is enjoying them.
The little white boy is soaking wet and muddy and matted which is sad. I saw a picture of him last week and he was fluffy and pretty.


The chocolate colored boy has dreamy eyes. I love his soft fleece. Hopefully I will learn to do something with it. I'm on the lookout for a mentor.
I haven't named them yet.

2015 Breeding

Starting in February the girls will start kidding. I bred everyone old enough this year to:
AC Farm's Blackstrap
 sire: Moonstone B Rufus
Dam: These Girls Rock Gypsum

These aren't great photos but he has wonderful breed character.
 

 
I have 8 girls bred and 3 too young this year. I have Nubians, and 1st and 2nd generation Miniature Nubians bred. I have too too many goats so 2015 will bring me to have to choose at least half the herd to sell. If you are interested in a kid or a first freshener keep checking back because I'll try to find some time this winter to post pictures and due dates.

Miniature Nubians

I am really loving my Miniature Nubians. Not only are they beautiful and colorful to look at thanks to the Nigerian influence but the milk! It's so creamy and sweet and now that the weather has turned, it's so rich and creamy that it's like half & half. I wish I had time to make
Cheddar cheese with this wonderful stuff!

2nd Gen. For Sale


Lola is a 1st gen. 50-50% doe with blue eyes and a nice deep body and great udder. She milks about a gallon a day of super rich, creamy, sweet milk- perfect for ice cream and cheese!

She had quads this year- outstanding and feeding them all well. The doeling is retained and one boy wethered but the other two boys would make a great addition to your Miniature Nubian breeding program. 

This little boy is super friendly and has gorgeous markings. A very respectable set of ears on him too. These kids are 2nd generation. Hurry though, I'm going to have to band them soon if I don't hear from you!
 Dam: Proverbs 31 Gloryb Lola
Sire:B-52's Coconut Mocha Snicklefritz -



This boy with the Holstein markings is larger and has blue eyes.
SOLD to Angela Bugni- thank you!!
