Nigerian Dwarf Goats
Fergus was born in April 2022. He is an ADGA registered buck and we are happy to have such a cute little guy!
Gecko is due mid April. By her size we are guessing anywhere from 3-5 kids! Her kids are almost always blue eyed and their sire this year is Finnegan, so we are hoping for polled babies
Tigger is very special and close to my heart. She was the first goat we got and she is the sweetest and friendliest we have. She is on the shorter side for a Nigerian and she is disbudded. She has a slight growth where her right horn would, but it isn't an issue. She was unsuccessfully bred in 2022. She was due to kid in April 2023, but she lost her single kid at the beginning of February. There was no reason that we could find. Unfortunately we cannot afford a pet goat, and while there is the possibility that she will still be able to kid, we don't have the time and money to keep trying. Both of her parents were registered, but she is not. I do have copies of their registrations if that is something you would want to have.
We hope to find her a wonderful home!

Not really a goat rescue
But we did rescue some goats.
We got into goats by accident. We knew that with sustainable farming, we needed a way to have our own dairy products.
We knew we didn't have the space for cows and so goats were a good option. We tried goat milk and loving it... we started looking for our goats. We found Greta who was in bad shape and in need of rescue. Justin even convinced the "owner" to throw in her kid, Olaf. Then we got Tigger as a new baby from a friend down the road. Olaf was a weather (castrated male goat) and so we knew to be truly sustainable, we needed to find a buck. Using the prize money from showing at the fair, we bought Amadeus. Then we got a call that several goats were in need of rescue. Justin jumped at the chance and brought home Geko and Lupe. To our surprise... Greta had been bread immediately after having Olaf and had three kids in our care. The kids and mama were not in good shape and we lost all four over the next few months.
We were absolutely heartbroken that we couldln't save them. We nursed the babies our selves and did whatever we could for them, but Greta was an old goat and being bred again and again her whole life with little care was detrimental.
