We have been having ENTIRELY too much fun with our new baby goats! Lacey, our Nigerian Dwarf goat had 3 little doelings (females) on Sunday, December 14th.
Our days have been filled with snuggles and nibbles from freshly born little babies. Life is good. 🙂
Watch the first video of our baby goats! It’s incredible how at only 24 hours old they’re already jumping around!
You can follow me on Instagram or subscribe to my YouTube Channel for more goat pics & videos:)
I have 2 12 day old nubian does, when do I add grain to their diet and what type of mineral block do they need?
DaNelle Wolford says
Hi Jessica, I really like the loose minerals from Hoegger’s Supply, but a basic cattle mineral block will do for now. You can give them tiny little nibbles of grain at 6 weeks on up, but I wouldn’t give them a cup of it until they are 1 year or older.

Greetings from a fellow goat obsessee! What good fortune to get three doelings! We were blessed with the same good luck last year. I could not bear to separate the three girls, so they are all still here. Their names are translate to Earth, Moon, and Sun. I can’t help myself with the theme names…Currently have a bottle baby I adopted from a friend after she fell in a bucket of water and mamma goat rejected her. She got carried around in a pocket book for several weeks, so she practically was in a goat sling. Wish I could send you pics! Folks in the grocery store would ask if she was a chiwahua or a bunny rabbit.

Did you change your breeding schedule from the about page “Tour of Our Farm”?
One of our does is due the beginning of April. She was the young trampy one ….screaming for the boys when in heat. Our older doe is very subtle and much more difficult to determine heat.She has had three “dates” with no success. So this week we are locking them in a stall for the entire week. At this rate, if it takes this time, she won’t be due until June.
Yes, we love baby goats…..except flying baby goats 🙂
Congratulations!! We are anticipating our kids in March and cannot wait!!! Love all you do!
YES!!!!! Goat posts are the BEST!
Congrats on the new additions! BTW, do you have your own buck on the property or do you send them off for a bit?
DaNelle Wolford says
I still can’t convince my husband to get a stinky buck yet, so for now they go on dates to a neighbor:)
They are just perfect. Congratulations. They sure do come in fantastic colors 🙂
