Our diary goats are a very important part of the homestead. They produce loads of amazing milk, high in butterfat content, that we use for drinking, cooking, making cheese, butter, and our herbal goat milk soaps. The goats also do a fine job of clearing out overgrown areas of the homestead. On top of their very practical uses, they are fabulous pets. I often compare our goats to dogs with hooves. Nubians are very social, friendly goats with loads of personality.
Bella is a Registered American Nubian. She is the herd leader and a fabulous milk-producer. I love her coloring, ears, and her strong roman nose.
Compass Rose is a registered American Nubian. Her beautiful colors and spunky personality certainly make her a show stopper.
Brie is a Registered F1 Mini-Nubian. Her mom is Bella and dad was a registered Mini. Her Blue eyes are highly desired in Mini-Nubians!
Pepper is a registered F1 Mini-Nubian. Her mom was a registered Nubian and dad was a registered Nigerian Dwarf. Pepper(oni) likes to do her own thing and rarely feels pressure to go with the herd, showing different and interesting personality traits than the others. She is a sweetie!
Cameo is also a Registered F1 Mini-Nubian. Her mom is Bella and twin sister is Brie. Cameo inherited the nice roman nose and beautiful ears that are so much desired in the Nubian goat.
The first doeling born here at Happy Acres, our precious little Dandelion. Her mom is Bella and she will be registered American Nubian. She looks much like her mom, except for the frosted ears. The only female of triplets, she certainly gets more than her fair share of attention.
Pear is a Registered Purebred Nubian. Her gorgeous coloring speaks for itself, but her sweet personality tops that.
Elvis is a Registered F6 Mini-Nubian Buck. Many are shocked to learn that his is a mini when they see how big he is. However, mini's and dwarfs are not the same things. Mini's are just slightly smaller then the full size Nubians.
