I have not used a Nigerian buck for YEARS, but when I saw this boys pedigree, I couldn't pass him up.  This boy is LOADED with MILKY genetics.  His pedigree is full of top ten milking Nigerians like SG ARMCH Rosasharn's Buckwheat Honey 3*D 'E', 3*M EEEE 91 who was top ten for MANY years as well as having a lifetime milk of 11,650# (dam's paternal granddam), Chenango-Hills Unique 5*D - Top 10 DHI & milked nearly a gallon in one day(!) (sire's maternal granddam and daughter of another top 10 doe), and SG Rosasharn P Haiku 4*D Top Ten DHI Breed Leader & ADGA 10 National GCH & Best Udder (sire's paternal granddam and daughter of another top 10 doe).   Honey Pot has lovely conformation and is always posing.  We have retained two of his daughters for our herd (Honeysuckle and Bubbles).

As much as I LOVE this buck and his pedigree, I have used him as much as I can in my herd, so must sell him... Asking $400.

DOES

We only have one doe available at this time.  Hope has given us lots of gorgeous kids.  Her conformation is stellar with an excellent topline, tons of body capacity with incredible length, depth and width, beautiful breed character and a nice udder.  Her biggest fault is that her teats are overly long and one side has a small orifice making her harder to milk than most of our does. She has held up very well into middle age and is giving about 7# a day (8# is a gallon).  She throws GORGEOUS kids and has often given us triplet doelings! SALE PENDING

G6S Normal by testing

Hope is our first 5th gen American doe that we retained.  She is soooo pretty and sweet.  She is a beautiful combination of her dam and sire in conformation.  Hope has a lovely topline, smooth blending, tons of body capacity, and stands on very correct feet and legs.  She has lovely breed character and a beautiful face.  Hope's dam, Grace, has a well shaped, soft udder with long, easy to milk teats and lots of very high butterfat milk.  Hope's sire, Star, also comes from great milking lines and Hope's udder is beautiful!  Her udder is high, wide and well shaped with a tight medial.  Her teats are actually overly long, but since she's pretty much perfect in every other way, I can work with long teats. *smile*  Hope is one of our smaller does and yet is milking extremely well - She is averaging 5# a day and peaks around 8#.

Hope is only for sale because we have to sell adults in order to be able to keep kids and not end up with hundreds of goats. :)  She is going instead of someone else because her teats make milking her harder than milking the other does - her teats are very large and her orifices are small.  Her daughter we have retained is very easy to milk with good length teats and large orifices.  We have two more Hope daughters we have retained that have not kidded yet.  We also have her 3/4 sister and two half brothers in the herd, so she is related to much of our herd already. More pictures of Hope can be seen on her page here.

Comments/Questions (let us know which goat(s) you are interested in):

We usually sell out of Miniature Nubian doelings and sometimes bucklings before they are born so the best way to be sure of getting a mini dairy goat from us is to check out the breeding schedule page and place a deposit.  If we do have any available after all deposits are filled, they will be listed here.  We are taking deposits for next year now.


A word on the pricing of the mature milkers... I figured the cost of raising a doe from 8 weeks to kidding age (either 1 or 2 years) and it is easily $350.  When purchasing an adult milker, you are getting the added benefit of having that first freshening behind them - they have the risk of the first birth behind them.  Plus, she has been trained to the milkstand, you KNOW how she milks and what her udder is like (a kid is always a gamble), AND you will be getting milk immediately.  With good quality milk at easily $10/gallon (the horrid stuff at Walmart is $16/gallon!), the doe will be paying for herself quickly.  So, that is the rationale behind the prices and why they are not as high as they seem.  I used to have a terrible time pricing milkers until I did the math to figure out what we have in them and what they are worth.  I finally settled on approximately doubling the price that I sell their kids for.
