    Just checking to see if there are any other Nigerian Dwarf Goat owners in West Virginia???
    We have 4 that we got as 4-H projects for our kids, but they are much like chickens...you are always adding to the flock! ...this coming from someone who started out with a dozen or so chickens, and now have around 60 and counting!

    I have pygmies and one supposedly fainting goat.

    What part of WV? I'm in Summers County, near Hinton.

    We are in Upshur County - about 30 minutes south of Clarksburg. Fainting goats...I've never been around any, but sure would have appreciated fainters when my nigerians got loose when we first got them. ANYTHING to have slowed them down! How many goats to you have?? Do you know of any nigerian breeders down south??

    I don't know any goat breeders really. I have 3 adult pygmy does, 2 babies born in July, both doelings, and my fainter is a buck. I have had him in with the "big" girls for about a month now. Hopefully will have little ones in February.
