Our Nubian Goats

The Anglo-Nubian, or simply Nubian in the United States, is a breed of domestic goat.

The breed was developed in Great Britain of native milking stock and goats from the Middle East and North Africa.  Its distinguishing characteristics include large, pendulous ears and a “Roman” nose.  

 

Due to their Middle-Eastern heritage, Anglo-Nubians can live in very hot climates and have a longer breeding season than other dairy goats. Considered a dairy or dual-purpose breed, Anglo-Nubians are known for the high butterfat content of their milk, although on average, the breed produces less milk than other dairy breeds.

Anglo-Nubians are large, with does weighing at least 135 pounds and 175 pounds for bucks. The minimum height of the breed, measured at the withers, is 30 inches for does and 35 inches for bucks. Like most dairy goats, they are normally kept hornless by disbudding within approximately two weeks of birth.

Dam's Dam:  Vedder's Ivy Rose

Skylar is another kid from our 2020 - 2021 breeding season that I just had to retain!  Her dam produces a "ton" of milk each breeding season and successfully feeds triplets each year, so we want to see if Skylar can do the same.

Stonewall was a keeper from the start!  His face and all his spots did it for us.  We would like to see how his conformation pans out once he matures.

Raynee is our first black and tan doeling and so unexpected since both her sire and dam are solid brown.  As soon as we saw her we knew we would retain her.  I can't wait until she matures to see how she ultimately turns out.

This little doeling stole our hearts from the very beginning!  She does have moon spots - it will be interesting to see if they become more visible as she gets older.  But for now, we will just enjoy her as she is....  chocolate brown with a hint of taupe spots.

We are super thrilled with Phoenix!  Not only is his coloring beautiful (gray spots on black) and unique to our farm, his personality and ease of care makes him a perfect buckling for us to keep as a future herd sire.  His pedigree is a super plus as well!

Silver Spoon (also known as Piper) came to us by luck.  She has an amazing pedigree and a wonderful personality.  She is black roan, which makes her stand out in our pasture as she is the only doe that contains so much black.  What also makes her stand out is her confirmation, thanks to her lineage.

Carolina got her name from my "forever" dream of living in North Carolina and owning my own goat farm.  She is a handful as she isn't a personalable as her dam, but we are getting there.

​Dam's Sire:  Frog Flat Farm Mr. Miyagi

​Bambi is the Nubian herd queen, partly due to her impressive size and her ability to draw attention to herself due to her moon spots.  Her appearance even drew the attention of the Goat Journal Magazine's Facebook administrators.

Date of Birth:  04/06/16

 

Sire:  Lucky Loving Dynamite

​Olivia has an extremely sweet and loving personality.  This is due, in part, to the fact that she was partially a bottle baby as she was so tiny as a kid.  She has matured into an elegant doe, boasting a lovely tan color.
