Bucklings for Sale

We currently have 2 bucklings for sale, with more to come as they are weaned.  We are retaining all our does to build the herd.

Nigerian Dwarf/Spanish cross buckling
First, a Nigerian Dwarf/Spanish cross born 9/21/2014. His dam is a registered Nigerian Dwarf whose granddam is a 2-star milker. She is our original goat and the best goat in the whole wide world -- also a great milker with a fabulous disposition. His sire is a Spanish from the Baylis line. The Spanish breed, also known as a "brush goat", adds hardiness because of its ability to thrive on low quality browse. This buckling is intact and has horns.

The second buckling for sale is a Kiko/Boer cross born 10/14/2014. His dam is pure Boer and his sire is pure Kiko. He has interesting black coloring with a white thunderbolt marking on his forehead. Boers are traditional meat goats but, as a breed, suffer from parasite issues. Kikos are parasite resistant and have an added benefit of not needing hoof trimming frequently. This Kiko/Boer cross will make a great herd sire with these blended characteristics.
