    My husband and I are looking for Nigerian dwarf goats that come from good milking lines. We are looking to purchase in the spring of the year. We hope to get 3-4 does and would like to find access to a nice buck for breeding as soon as the does are old enough (over 1 yr of age). I am looking to switch from cow's milk to goat milk and start making my own soap. There are only 4 of us so I was hoping to stagger the breedings so that I have one or two in milk at all times. We are located in Cumberland County, Va just west of Richmond. If there is anyone in Va that has Nigis please point me in the right direction!

    Also, could anyone with nigis please post pics of the housing setups they use? We are starting from scratch here so we'll take all the help we can get!

    Thanks!

    Yes I know someone! Cindy Lou Willson of Buc~a~Buc farm in VA. Google her farm name & you should be able to reach her. I have seen pics of her little goats, they are Gorgeous, and many have blue eyes! I am a sucker for blue eyes, I almost bought one, Lol! Maybe someday I will. I just didn't have $300 to spend.
