haha...they are kinda cute aren't they???Lol!!! I have had a few of them in the past, and the babies are soooooo darned adorable!!! Not as cute as Pygmies, but then I am extremely biased...I LOVE Pygmy goats; Nigerians are a VERY close second!!!

As far as your buck's ears...I don't see the scarring that would indicate that he'd been 'cropped' (no such thing in the goat world...btw...we tattoo or tag; not notch or crop)...I think you might have been 'had' on this one...he looks more Alpine\\Nubian than pure Nubian. He doesn't have the required roman nose either...a definite flaw...without papers you never can tell, and some breeders are NOT honest!!! I hate a dishonest breeder...

I used to show and later, judge goat shows at county fairs, as well as did FFA judging...I had to learn the goat breeds very well, as well as had to memorize scorecards for each group!! So like I said before, I don't want to doubt you...it's the breeder's honesty I am doubting, because your buck does not represent a Nubian very well; he's a VERY lovely buck, but not a good representative of his 'stated' breed...

mmm I think you may be right we were "Had"..and to think I paid for a full blooded Nubian... . I dont know why he would have lied..ok never mind $$$ is a good reason to lie. And we were just the ppl he was looking for. . PPL these days. But I have to love him anyways right? Im glad we are not ever selling him. You seem to know alot of about Goats! I would love to get to know you more! We just had a tramatic week last week. You see Emah is a horrible flirt and she jumped two fences to get to Reese and we paniced over her breeding b/c her last babies were to be her last b/c she doesnt know how ot raise her own babies. (her previous home was a dairy and they pull the babies ASAP) And her Utter is ruined with mastitis beyond repair she only has one working side (she came this way) and the working side only gives 6 oZ a day. so she doesnt even have enough to support babies. That and she has a history of triplets.

Well she would have been due April 12. But she began to misscarry over the weekend. She passed one but couldnt pass the other two. I had to pull the other two. (they were kitten sized but she wasnt dialated. ) So now after this we had to majorly think. Sadly we are having to give her a way to friend. She has retired goats. And no Bucks. We are going to miss her sooooooo much. she is such a snuggle bum.

I am posting about destiny.

My Best friend has a baby Pigmy! I watched him grow up! and I even baby sat him a few times! He loved my ears! He remined me of a baby Deer we Rehabbed

no problem I believe you. I guess we were easy to trick We moved here from PA. And you know how easy it is to trick City ppl who have no clue.

I plan to show sheep. I am getting a papered Friesian. My first Wooly! I just have to wait on her to be born. Im going to call her Whisper.
