    Okay, so I already have 3 unregistered Nigi does and 1 soon-to-be-sold Nigi buck that I bought for backyard milk production. After much research I decided I would like to also get a small herd of registered Nigi's and possibly get into showing as well.

    I reserved this little buckling from Piddlin Acres a while back:

    Piddlin Acres BD Whata Beau
    Feb 2009
    Sire: Dill's XM Bo Didley
    Dam: Piddlin Acres BZ Whata Diva

    And while I was waiting for him to be weaned the breeder told me that she would have some of her yearling breeding does for sale soon since she had kept back several kids this year. After much buttering-up of my DH, I am excited to say that I have also bought these two girls from the Piddlin Acres herd:

    Piddlin Acres CB Ruby Slippers
    born April 2008
    Sire: Piddlin Acres BZ Cowboy Boots
    Dam: MCH Little Rascals Emerald*D

    Pecan Hollow C Biker Chick
    born 2/23/08
    Sire: Pecan Hollow SFB Constantine (Twin Creeks San Fransisco Bay x Pecan Hollow Creme De Mint)
    Dam: Pecan Hollow GL Chickadee (Goodwood Laredo x MCH/CH Twin Creeks Meadowlark)

    Biker Chick will be bred back to Velvet Acres Patriot Missile before I pick them all up and I am hoping for at least one doe from that breeding (she had triplets last time so hopefully I will get lucky) so I'll have 3 or more good does to go along with my little buck. Here is a pic of Patriot:


    So, what do you think? Is this a good start for a nice quality ND herd? [​IMG]

    Quote:Actually they are pretty cheap to feed, they spend a lot of time grazing in their pasture and don't need a whole lot of grain. The expensive part has been the set-up like building them a pasture and housing. [​IMG]

    But, just like with chickens it is sometimes better NOT to try adding it all up, right? [​IMG]

    Very nice nigis. I show Alpines and Lamanchas. I would love to get some nigis but my DH seems to think enough is enough. I'm jealous.
