  1. Looks like I'll be getting a pair of Nigi does within the next couple of months! [​IMG] I'm so excited!
    I've been talking to a breeder for a bit now and she's got some does for sale after they kid within the next few months.
    I'm still in the choosing phase so when I know who I'm getting I'll let you all know and show pics.

    Congrats!

    We have been trying to milk ours, with not much luck [​IMG] I want milk and not from the grocery store! Ours kidded in Jan 1st, I have not given up yet though!!!
     
  5. Well there are two pairs and I'm having a hard time choosing which one to go with...

    There is Domino and Jazmine, two littermate sisters:

    Domino- http://www.proctorhill.com/dominopage.htm

    Jazmine- http://www.proctorhill.com/bgjazmine.htm

    They are $400 for the pair because the breeder doesn't want to seperate them since they've always been together...

    Then there is Meriah and Willow, two unrelated older does who have kidded before:

    Meriah- http://www.proctorhill.com/hameriahpage.htm

    Willow- http://www.proctorhill.com/willowpage.htm

    She will let me take these two for $500....

    Goat people of BYC, what's the better pair? She's telling me that I'll get a couple more years of milking out of Domino and Jazmine but I'm a little more drawn to Meriah and Willow since they are more proven in the kidding/milking department.... [​IMG]

    Oh, I'm so jealous! I'm in the market for a pair of goats, myself (these two will be just pets, for starters), and I'm still trying to decide on which breed to get. I'm leaning towards Nubians, because I like the bigger breeds, and I'll probably get two wethers, since this is our first time. Congratulations to you, for entering "goat world"!!! (what is it anyway, about people getting chickens first, and then somehow naturally progressing towards goats...???)
