>> Hello,> I am new to goats in the past two years. I have Nigerian Dwarf goats. I have been trying to learn everything I can about the goats from this and other forums. I have asked a couple of questions before on here with wonderful…Continue
Hi all. I am still relatively new to goats (or any livestock, for that matter), but I have a sinking feeling one of my does may have bugs... She seems to be twitching and itching and stamping her feet a lot. I have brushed through her coat a…Continue
Well, I got my ADGA herd name back today, and of course Wonderland was not available. I am pretty bummed, because Wonderland was my herd name in every other registry and I was really attatched. But, what can ya do?Anyway, I am trying to decide if I…Continue

My little wether got caught up in the milk stanchion and hurt himself and was lame, both front and back legs. A few days later, the other goats in the herd began pushing him down. After a week in isolation, he is not better and can only stand if…Continue
I currently have two bucks and two whethers for sale.
Both bucks are polled and have wonderful bloodlines. Beetlejuice has thrown beautiful, flashy kids, half of which were polled, which is typical of the polled gene. His pedigree is phenomenal, as is Licorice's, his son, by extension. Beetle is NDGA and AGS; Licorice is NDGA. Both are small bucks.
We have had our ND does since Sept., but only now have finally resolved issues with the past owner and are getting the registration papers for our girls! So, is there any reason why we shouldn't start looking to breed them? It would mean having the kids around Sept-Oct., which seems like a good time for New England--not too hot, not yet freezing cold. What do you think? Would it be harder to sell kids just before Winter? Should we wait, or go for it?
