Oh gosh, do I love Nigerian Dwarfs! Hazel is a year old, and she is teeny-weeny, which of course, makes her adorable. We got her from Shadowfax Arabians, which makes her even more special. She is very sweet, and we have even thought of making her a house goat for that very reason.... but that will not be happening. She was accidentally bred at around five months old, and she is due anytime around March 10th. Keep checking back for baby pictures! Kidded in March to two adorable bucklings!
Alice is my mostly Nubian goat. She is actually 1/4 Lamancha, but looks just like a Nubian. She also resembles a deer, as you can see in the picture. We bought her from our friend's nighbor, who doesn't have a giant goat farm, but big enough. We went to "take a look" at this goat, and that is how I ended up with her. She is very sweet, and is usually the favorite. She is fairly young, about 10 months, but will be bred this Fall. She may be pregnant!
There is only one more, and her name is Betty. She is 3/4 LaMancha, and 1/4 Nubian. She clearly has the LaMancha ears, and obviously takes on the look of a LaMancha. She is about 6 months old, and she is the lead goat. She does head-butt the other goats if she is not getting a pet and the other ones are, but I have to say, so does Alice. Hopefully as they get older they will become a little less selfish, but they never hurt each other, so it's fine for now. Betty is very sweet to people, and is going to be bred whenever Alice is.
