Aren't they pretty? Nubian goats! They arrived here yesterday and now reside in the quarantine pen. These are the 'cheese goats'...we talked for years about getting a Mini Jersey for cheese making milk, but there is a certain instability in the Mini's right now.....some might/may/could have Dexter in them, there seems to be 2 registration bodies that don't like each other, there's infighting and also some questionable folks involved for money rather than milk production. We got tired of trying to figure it all out and who's going to spend $2,000 to $4,000 on a heifer calf with doubts like that. So we gave up. I told Rick we already have the setup for goats so might as well add some nice Nubians to our herd of Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats for his cheese making milk supply. That's fine with me, I have always loved the Nubians, I like goat hugs and slightly needy girls that can bellow a morning welcome and 'hum' their content when they're full and happy. So here they are! Sunshine on the left is 7 months old and Flower on the right is a year and a half and recently bred so we'll have milk and little Nubian kids in another 4 months.
