This is our new little handsome guy "Alex". He came with the name Seamus pronounced (sheymus) We bought him from a breeder in Alexis Illinois so I thought the name Alex would fit him nicely.
Alex is a Mini Nubian, which is a cross between a Nigerian dwarf buck and a standard sized Nubian doe. Producing the look of a Nubian in a smaller size. Great for smaller farms or someone looking for a dairy goat with a high butterfat content in a smaller easier to handle size.
Alex and the girls are still getting used to each other and everyone seems to be getting along great! I cannot wait for cute lil floppy eared babies! Alex is only 3 months old so It might be a a month or 2 before he takes interest in them, Or we shall see when the girls come back into heat again.
