    I have a Nubian doe who is about 5-6 years old. She has never had any kids and stays in a large fenced area with 2 part-Boer twin sisters who are about her age. She has always been thinner than them, which I believe is normal. Recently, she has lost quite a bit of weight and is pretty much skin...

    Nubian kid with goiter?

    I have a 3 month old Nubian buckling who was weaned at 8 weeks. We have noticed a large lump around the area where the neck meets the chin. It is soft, not hard. He doesnt seem to be sick or anything, he acts normal. Could it be a milk goiter? Is it possible that this could occur with a kid that...

    Would You Wait?

    I have an almost year-old Nubian doeling. And a buckling born March 28. We would like to breed them together and were planning on waiting until next year so he could have a chance to grow more and just find a different buck for her this season. But we are now moving across the country before...

    Help with breed

    Hello everyone! I've posted a few threads over the past week and I have learned so much already from this site! We currently have two goats. I'm not 100% sure of the breed of my older goat. The people at the auction said Nubian and then someone else told me he is a "mini Nubian". I'm wondering...
