My husband and I are looking to learn more about goats. Especially the small breeds. Is anyone in central Indiana willing to share some info or have us out to see your goats?

We're about an hour and half/two hours north of Indy. It depends on how bad the traffic is in Kokomo.

Anyways, we raise Saanen which isn't exactly a small breed, but we enjoy visitors and showing off our goats. If there isn't anyone closer (or you want to come by anyway) just drop me a PM and you're more than welcome to come up and visit.

I am about 1 1/2 hours southeast of Indy. I have Nubians & also Pygmy goats. I'd love to help you out if it isn't too far to travel for you.

Sounds good Sherrie.

I was just up that way last Saturday, there's a home brew store in Elkhart. Ah well! It won't be this weekend since I have to run Cleo's Patra down to Indy. Unless there's something I don't know I'll probably come up on the 25th or so.

There is going to be an NDGA (Nigerian Dwarf Goat Assoc) show in Greenfield, IN at the beginning of October (1st weekend?) so you could meet lots of dwarf breeders and their goats in person there! There will be breeders there from all over the midwest there and they put on a great show. I may even drive down from WI to see that show again!
Check out http:www.ndga.org for more info or call them if it isn't posted on their site.
I believe there is also going to be a show in northern IN in Sept. but am not sure of the details on that one.
Nigerians are the best! (but I'm not biased LOL!)

We are due East of Kokomo, and raise show quality Boer goats. You are welcome to stop by anytime you'd like. Even though we are specializing in Boers, Sherrie will be glad to know that we just couldn't part with Brookie - our Registered Saanen that we bought from her a year ago. So - I guess we officially raise show quality FB Boers and Boer/Sannen crosses!!!

PM or email if you'd like more info: [email protected]

Aww. I'm glad to hear you still have her. the buck that Boren linked to above is her Full brother, though a year older I think? We've Got Appraisals coming up again in 4 weeks. Remember the craziness that was going on when you stopped to see her before you bought her.. :)
