Our Baby Nigerian Dwarf Goat

    We just got a new baby Nigerian Dwarf Goat.  He is about 9 weeks old and we have named him "Allen Buck Wankin" (yes, the kids helped name him, how'd you guess?).  We call him "Buck" or "Bucky".  He is just too precious.  We will be getting him a female in 2 months so in about a year, we'll be having babies of our own.  So excited for this newest adventure.  Did you know Nigerian goat milk is a very sweet milk and is one of the best for making cheeses and soap due to its high butterfat amount.  That means milk for our family, cheese, and soap.  We can also sell the babies for a profit and can butcher them for meat if we need/want to.   Anyway, here are some pictures and a short video for you to enjoy of him.

You can tell how tiny he is.  He's inside his 50 gallon barrel which is serving as his sleeping chambers for now.

  3. Oh my! He is too cute. I want some goats so bad, so does my 7yr old granddaughter! Think it would be a good experience for her. We have had chickens since she was 4, and she loves them.....ooooooh, baby goats!!

    1. Yes, they are so much fun as babies and provide sweet milk when they get older. My 3 year old grandson has soooo much fun playing with Buck.

  4. He's adorable!! I would love to have goats and chickens one day, I grew up in the country and the homestead lifestyle was a big part of my life. Now I live in the city/suburbs (north Texas - DFW area) and I miss it. I am new to your blog but wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I look forward to reading more!

  6. We just got a Nigerian Dwarf Kid ourselves. Our first. He's a handful. It's like having a one year old who just learned to walk. He's only 4 weeks old, so he's in the house and getting bottle fed. We plan on doing the same as you... having a small tribe of goats with our own milk/soap/ and hopefully getting their milk fat up enough to make butter.

    Unlike you however, our kids cannot come up with a name everyone can agree on... So for now, It is the Goat whom shall not be named :)

    1. Glad you have one. Our little guy fell ill and then got bloat. We tried everything but he finally succumbed to it. We are so very sad. :-(
