Ours are Nubians. Brought 3 up with us from Texas, have added two does and two bucks. And they've added a bunch of kids! All but two of ours are unregistered. (Anybody in Denver area want to buy wethers cheap?)

I have two pet goats-Fiona, and Kiera. Fiona is a Kinder (1/2 Nubian 1/2 Pygmy) and Kiera is 3/4 Pypmy 1/4 Nubian. I don't milk them, they live here for their entertainment value.

"Entertainment Value" I like that. That's why I don't butcher the chickens when they stop laying. They are just too fun to watch.

I have a wether and a milk doe, both Saanen/Nubian crosses. I am in the market for a Lamancha milk doe.

I have 15 Nubian/Alpine crosses of various ages. We are getting into Tenn. Fainting goats... "Sleepy" a young doe will arrive on March 1st. I also have a 6 wk old Nubian, "Dasher" who will be the herd sire next year. We are very interested in getting some more fainting goats if anyone has any. We live it the "deep south" area of Mobile, AL.

Fiona and Kiera weren't very entertaining yesterday when they knocked the grain room door off it's track making it fall and break the window. Naughty goats! It took my youngest daughter and I a good 45 minutes to put plastic on the window and rehang the door. We have a new rule--Never open the grain room door when the goats are out of their stall.

I raise registered Nubians. At one time we were up to almost 100, but now have reduced to 5 does and a buck.
