  Good Morning!
We've raised Nubians, since my first daughter came along allergic to cow's milk. Then her siblings and cousins were allergic, too!

  Hello Everyone!
Im not sure where this will post, so............. :)
Dairy goats keep me very busy and then the growing season keeps me busy with the rest of the year, either planting, harvesting or canning!
Trenton, Fl is located about 30 miles west of Gainesville. That is the home to the University of Florida "Fighting Gators".
We have quarter horses. They are all mostly speed horses. Our daughters used them for barrel racing and rodeo games. Now they are too involved in college to play. lol
You have never tasted anything better than homemade ice cream or fudge made with raw goats milk. It makes the best desserts and gravy. Our girls produce about 3-7% butter fat with the exception of the Nigerians that produce around 13%.
