for people who love the littlest dairy goats
Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goat doelings and bucklings. These are healthy and beautiful little goats. Our line comes from Antiquity Oaks in Illinois. Deborah just notified me that both dams and our sire's dam were all on AGA's top 10 list for 2011 one-day milk tests! We have 4 doelings and 2 bucklings for sale. Some are naturally polled; others have been disbudded. Asking $350 each. We are located about 20 miles west of Ottumwa, Iowa. All born March 7. I'm going to try to add pics; if they aren't here I will get them added later today. Thank you for looking.

Oh my goodness, you are letting all of your beautiful goats go to a new home? You are making it very hard on me for sure! Are you sure you want to release all of them? I can understand your responsibilities and your priorities though. If you can let me know more about the individuals in your herd I would appreciate it. It appears you have invested in some good lines!
Our goats take up most of our time between 1 and 4:30 every afternoon and we are not even milking yet so I understand the time commitment. We could spend less time with them but at this point we don't feel we are spending enough time with them! We are only two years in to our goats and still have a lot to learn. Our goats have their hooves full teaching us every thing we need to know :-)
Hooves Full! That is so cute! Oh, Sue I hope you are sure. Have you thought about just cutting back to a couple of breeders until next year, so you will have something left to start back up with if you want to. I wish I were closer, so I could come see them. I really like that one little doe. Shoot if I were closer, I would probably try to get the whole herd, knowing me! I do sympathize with you though. I have had to do similar things before. I guess that is why I am enjoying my herd so very much now. Because I do not work away from home. All my kids are in school. In fact after Oct., 3 of the 7 will be gone, 2 in high sch., 1 middle, and the baby will be in 4th grade so I have a whole lot more time than I use to. I pretty much spend all day around here keeping an eye out on the goaties. They pretty much are my job now. All though there basic needs of being fed etc. can be taken care of in a matter of a few minutes a day, (right now with no milking etc.) because I have made sure they are set up to where they can be fed and cared for by someone in an emergency or something like that quickly and without having to enter their pens. That way I don't have to worry about someone letting them out or leaving a gate open etc. I spend a great deal of my day wandering around talking to goats, loving on them and just generally interacting with them. I even do a lot of cooking on my porch, hanging out cloths, etc. during the day keeping an eye on my herd. Heck that's even how I manage to be on my PC and this site so much. Half the time I am on here I am outside with my herd. I love that being able to be with them and on the PC learning about and sharing them all at the same time. Don't get me wrong, this family really keeps me hopping, always have, but any time I possibly can I spend with my herd! Oh well, the closest contact I have to you is Clarkesville, Tn. so unless you have anyone you go to see in that direction I certainly couldn't get them a ride right now. I already paid a bundle to get 9 from out west. I can't do that again right now.
Thanks, girls, for your input. I have decided life would be manageable again without the goats. Yes, Liz, if I could have sold the babies easily earlier I probably wouldn't have decided to sell them all. At this point I realize I just need to simplify my life, and this is the easiest way to do it. Please give me a day or 2 and I will get pics, pedigrees and info on the adults posted. They are all double registered except the FF, and I believe she is only AGS registered.
