    I have had all the common goat breeds and settled on this one. Small enough to keep in a backyard and gives great tasting milk. Great for familes with babies and small children.

    I have goats with ND mixed in - over on backyard herds there's a bunch with pure ND!

    When I do get goats, that is the breed I want to get too! Nigerian Dwarf or a nigerian dwarf cross. The goal is to have them within 2-3 years. [​IMG]

    Right now, I only have one Nigerian Dwarf; a doe named Lily Rose (that's her in my avatar). I can tell a big difference in her temperment than that of our other goats. She's much sweeter & friendlier. So, I think the NDs & the Pygmies are the two breeds we're going with from now on.
