Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

You know when you make a decision and then when it happens you immediately know it was the wrong one! I've spent two weeks living with a poor decision but today I recognized the source of my crabbiness and hate to do the chores attitude. It was the non-ND I let come into my barn! My daughter thought I needed another milker and she has a "small" Nubian/Boer cross due to kid last Thursday. She was coming from NY to our Family Camp weekend and could truck her up. She kept saying, Mom, she's small and sweet. And I don't care what you do with her as long as you take her." I refused twice and then foolishly called her and said bring her. Now she is a beautiful goat and she delivered a sweet buckling on Thursday but she certainly didn't fit in with mt herd and my goal of not complicating my life now that I'm retired.
Today I started making calls and tonight sold both her and the baby rather cheaply and got back my sanity! It was worth letting them go at a low price. Now I have my sweet, small, quiet herd back. I hope I have learned my lesson!

He is a cutie, but I understand. I need to make more of an effort to sell my la manchas, because they're causing more frustration than anything.
