Nigerian Dwarf goats

I'm a new goat momma! I'm just so excited, and can't get over how cute these little brats are. Just sharing :) this is my official "I WILL spam you with baby goat pictures" thread, so feel free to look elsewhere ;)

Wow.  This went sideways in a hurry. :chuckle:

I'll pass on the milk, but if you stumble across a set of backstraps, shoot a PM my way! :chuckle:

 What are the petting zoo hours? The wife and daughter would have a blast playing with baby goats.

Nice. Goats are cool and tons of fun. My inlaws keep a herd of Nubians...dairy goats about 11 times the size of those babies.
What are your plans for them? Milking?

Hey, if she's starting a petting zoo, I can probably help and add to her inventory.
Just saying.....

My mother in law makes all that stuff. She keeps 2 bucks and maybe 10? does I think?
Are the bucklings wethered?

No videos of baby dwarf goats jumping around? Disappointing, SG.

I have heard that we will be able to milk our females, but idk at what age!! They are so much fun, we go for walks every night and Gracie just flat goes nuts bouncing around jumping up on stuff, one day she was standing on the bagger on my riding lawn mower and then Elvis was standing on the hood of my wife's car, that didn't go well cause he stinks to high heaven.. S/G if the girls produce milk you can come get all they will give you..

That's awesome, I will learn, right now I'm just loving the heck out of them. Yea they will be banded when they drop, they're all less than a week old :) two different mommas and 4 kids. The moms gave birth a few days apart, my doe (in the second picture) had her fat little boy on Friday and then momma #2 had 3 on Monday. Then Hitler-stache is 12 weeks old, soooo tons of cuteness everywhere  :chuckle:

From what I know in my extremely limited knowledge, is that they have to get pregnant first to produce milk and then you can milk them after baby is done (someone correct me if I'm wrong).. So I'll be testing the waters with the one momma I have after Jupiter is fat and weaned lol. If it all works out, my neighbor shows and breeds so there will be lots of babies and does around all the time. Eeeeeeeeee.

We had a couple on the farm as kids.  We had some sort of weeping willow tree they loved to eat.  It was perfectly trimmed as high as they could reach.
They also stripped the bark off of all the cedar trees.

I have seen that before and if you were to take a level to the bottom of those branches I bet it would be level every time :chuckle:
