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.

Moonspots and Great Ears for Sale

DOB: 3/14/2007 FS84 (+V++) @ 02-03
This little dude is a stunner. 1st generation Miniature Nubian.
The above is his dam. More can be seen about her lineage from her original herd here:
His moonspots and belt, splashes of white and frosted ears can only add to the amazing ear length, long body, and all his other chrome. These boys may be only a few days old but already show great promise. They come from great show and milk lines.
Here's his belted side
His twin brother is a handsome fellow as well. Without moonspots, but still likely to throw them in his offspring. Never mind, he's got lovely flash, a nice long body and wide rear.

Their sire:
B-52 Coconut Mocha Snicklefritz
Sire: Cornerstone Farm Dirty Harry
Sire's Sire: Hidden Creek's Theodore Roosevelt
Sire's Dam: Cornerstone Farm Dazzle Me
Dam: Moonstone B Zivah
Dam's Dam: Moonstone M Zeldah
Dam's Sire: Cornerstone Farm Bakari

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!!

Coccidiosis Prevention

I pre-treat my kids at 21 days for coccidiosis with this stuff for 7 days in a row. 15cc per kid per day. I mix 1 1/2 tsp. with a cup of water and a generous bit of molasses to hide the bitterness. The quads this year mug me for it! They suck it out of the syringe like candy.

Quite a Buckling for Sale

This little darling is one of the bucklings from Lola's set of quads. He is gorgeous and has a sweet disposition. 2nd  generation miniature Nubian out of Proverbs 31 Gloryb Lola (1st gen) and B-52's Coconut Mocha Snicklefritz (4th gen)

If you look closely you can see the side view of his dam's lovely udder. She is a gallon a day milker at peak, with the creamiest and sweetest milk I've ever tasted. Such wonderful milk for cheese making!

Beatrix 2nd gen.

Lola Had Quads!

Lola gave us 3 boys and one darling little of the boys has blue eyes. He is the black and white one that looks like a Holstein cow. $200 for him or the gorgeous little mostly black one with the white on his face and side. The mostly white boy will be wethered and the little white girl with black eyes and a few spots will be retained.

This boy has blue eyes! 

This little rascal is cute. I'm wethering him so he will make a very nice pet. $85

Isn't he just gorgeous? He's sweet too. Would make a nice herd sire.
