We reserve the right to change a breeding at our discretion. This year we are primarily using our buck Field's of Grace Sweet Diego. We are also repeating breedings with our older does to Firestone Creek HWD Katmandu as we have been very pleased with the results. We should have kids available again starting in November.

Cindy produced 3 does from this breeding in 2011, and we retained one, MoonFlower, who has Cindy's long teats and a full, strong body. I had a terrible time letting any of the doelings from this breeding go!
Kid 10/22/12 with quads, 2 bucks and 2 does. All are sold.
Ammi has produced some lovely kids from this breeding, including Abigail, who I retained and who freshened spring 2012 with a lovely udder and super easy to milk teats. This is probably the last time I will be doing this breeding as I want to try some of our other bucks on Ammi in the next years.

Re-bred in standing heat 5/29/12
Kid 10/22/12 with triplets, 2 does and 1 buck. All sold.
Abigail freshened with an udder I love to milk! I would like to see more capacity in her next freshening, but it wasn't a lack of room in her udder, which is as soft as butter and perfect sized teats and orifices. She produced and average of 3 cups a day as a FF, and peaked at 1.5 quarts a day.
Kid 10/22/12 with triplets, 2 does and 1 buck
Calico is a well put-together doe, and such a steady producer! Nothing makes her stop producing, and 4 months fresh she still provides nearly 2 quarts a day of sweet, creamy milk! I am hoping Diego pulls her rear attachment back some as that is the main point I would like to improve upon.

We reserve the right to change breeding's at our discretion, and to retain any animal we wish. Non-refundable deposits of $50 may be made on kids after they are born. If you are interested in a breeding, you may contact me to be put on a notification list, and I will notify those who have contacted me as soon as kids are on the ground. You will then have 48 hours to place a reservation before kids are made available to anyone else.
It is our practice at Nigerian Meadows to disbud all our baby goats at 2 weeks of age. When disbudding there is always the chance of scurs growing. If you see scurs growing (they look like thin horns and may be oddly shaped), you may bring the kid back to us to re-burn the area. This must be done as soon as possible after noticing the growth!
All reserved kids must be picked up between 7-8 weeks of age unless other arrangements are made. Kids will have been dis-budded, tattooed, wormed, and given Bovi-sera shots before leaving our farm except in cases where we agree to allow a baby to leave at an early age as a bottle baby. In that case you will need to bring the kid back for tattooing and follow-up care or find someone to do it in our place at your expense. We do not vaccinate our goats, but after the full price has been paid and the goat is yours we will teach you how to administer them or suggest you find a veterinarian that will have epinephrine on hand to do it at your expense.
When banding a kid to become a wether we administer C&D anti-toxin to guard against infection. This procedure must be done as late as possible to allow the urinary tract to develop, so we do this just before the goat leaves our farm. You may choose to bring the kid back at a later date to be wethered if you would like it to be older, but we will retain the paperwork until the kid has been brought back for the procedure.
We provide the paperwork to register kids with AGS, ADGA, and NDGA. It is your responsibility to send the paperwork in to the organizations and pay the fees to them. All balances are due when the goat leaves our farm. If you do not pick your goat up by the time specified in the purchase agreement, a $3/day boarding charge will be applied to your balance for a period of 2 weeks. After that time you will forfeit the deposit money and the goat will be put back up for sale. Goats are herd animals and will be sold with another goat unless you have other goats already. We price our goats based on milk and show potential, and on an individual basis after evaluating each one. We will only sell intact bucks if we are confident that they will produce offspring we ourselves would be willing to keep in our breeding program, and we will advise you on potential strengths and weaknesses he may be most likely to pass on so that you stand the best chance of getting outstanding offspring when pairing the buck with your does.
We cannot accept a goat back after it leaves our farm. We keep a healthy herd, and cannot guarantee care and health of the animal once it leaves. You may, at your expense, have a veterinarian come out to inspect a goat you intend to purchase. Despite every effort to prevent it, goats may experience shipping fever after leaving our farm. We cannot insure against it, but we are available if you have any questions after adopting one of our goats. Should we decide not to offer a particular goat for sale, you may use your deposit for another goat or choose to have it refunded to you. Any goat paid for but not picked up in the time specified in the purchase agreement will remain our property and all monies will be forfeited to Nigerian Meadows.
Our Guarantee to You:
We guarantee our goats to be healthy and disease-free when they leave our farm. If an animal you purchase from us is deemed by a veterinarian to have a disease or illness that was with them when bought from us we will gladly refund the purchase price and take the goat back with a signed statement by the veterinarian for up to 30 days after the goat leaves our farm.
