So I am thrilled that I was able to bring her back full circle to her first home. I am so glad her owners contacted me about her and I was able to get her and her friend. As you can see from the picture below they are not trusting me yet but I did some bribing...the feed pellets were not to their liking but I was able to get the nigora (Ginger) to take some goat mineral block pieces from my hand, her friend (MaryAnn) was too shy to venture very close. Oh, the names came from my kids who are currently watching the t.v. series, Gilligan's Island, with their dad. Remember Ginger, the movie star, and MaryAnn, the farm girl type :)

I have been breeding for Nigora goats for about 4 years now. It has been slow going since I've decided to breed my angora does that I've had with my nigerian buck(s). Angora does are not as fertile as nigerians I've decided, because out of 4 angora does I've only had 4 nigora does born from two of those does; I did have one nigora doe born to one of my colored angora does but she did not make it. So either way it has been slow going. This fall I have high hopes to breed nigora to nigora for 2012 spring kids. Well onto my pictures in this post. The top picture is of my 2009 nigora doe born to my old angora doe I lost this past fall. She ended up going to some wonderful people in middle TN but recently they decided to scale down on their goat herd and wanted to know if I wanted to buy her back. Yes!!! I could not get her right away do to my own circumstances but found out recently that she was still available. Yeh! I went to go pick her up Friday with her nigerian doe companion.
