I just recently got 4 boer goats and am intrigued by nubians. What do you think about Nubian goats? Are they more gentle and passive than boers. Mine are all friendly and nice, but I see somany people have nubians and would like to know more about them

  Beautiful Nubian. I've had them before. A very smart breed. They were the ones always opening the gate and walking right out the pasture door.

  goat soap
Do you have a receipe for the soap you can share, or a book or website to suggest? I would like to make items to sell from my farm but don't know where to start.

Come visit me, "Double B".

  You sound like a role model. Thus far I'm not accomplishing even close to this, but I have my dreams. I find myself drawn to pictures of goats.
