    Wow Tressa... there are no words... :hugs:hugs:hugs So glad that your son seems to have recovered and I hope you don't have to get a lawyer involved with the insurance coverage... But you might have to... Good to have you back.

    Does the goat "have" to be a mini nubian? Just as an aside, I don't think (but don't know!) that there are goat shows that accept mini anythings... They pretty much have to be registered as pure or grade in a breed. Hopefully someone else can chime in with actual knowledge (@ragdollcatlady or perhaps @frustratedearthmother or @OneFineAcre ) Of course in 4H I believe you can pretty much use any goat as it's all about showmanship and learning about the animal.

    I don't know if there's anything I can do to help you... I don't have any money and little time, but I'll do what I can if I can.

    So sorry for the issues with kid2! I am so glad it is all OK for now. :hugs

    For our 4-H, when the kids show dairy goats, they have to be registered and at this time in our area, minis aren't accepted as ADGA and AGS aren't registering them. There are mini registries, but our county fair only allows ADGA and AGS papers. Our kids showed nigerians and our nubian and even for being a full sized goat our nubian is really easy to handle.They are "super chill", easy going goats. Our nigerians range from easy to a bit more animated. I love and highly recommend both breeds. ;)
