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.

Moon spots and Blue Eyes

Proverbs 31 LB Isobel Blue XN04496
2nd Generation Miniature Nubian
64.45% Nubian 35.55% Nigerian
 SALE PENDING thank you Patricia Keeney
is a 2nd generation little doe with beautiful blue eyes and moonspots. She has airplane ears but will bring lovely genetics for milk and udders in a colorful package. Her dam, Lola has blue eyes, a fantastic udder and lots of creamy sweet milk.  I'm thinking Isobel will follow her footsteps. 
I had meant to keep her but this next year will be taken over by college classes and surgeries in the family. I simply must pare down again.
See Lola here
CAE/CL negative tested herd. 
Isobel has been bottle fed and at 3 months is still getting milk at night. Disbudded *but has a little bit of scur. (a number of mine scurred this year)
$50 non refundable deposit will hold until transportation is arranged
This little girl is super friendly and sweet. I hate to part with her, it makes me feel sick but I just can't part with any of the adult does, I get so attached. If this girl doesn't sell I won't be disappointed. I would gladly let her stay but I am over the amount of goats I should keep as it is.
