** Proud to be the only Nigerian Dwarf breeders in the UK to be recognised by the NIGERIAN DWARF GOAT ASSOCIATION.**
Have you always wanted a pet goat but felt you don't have the space? Our little Nigerian Dwarfs may be just what you have been looking for!
They don't need rolling acres or even a paddock, just a draught proof shelter and a securely fenced exercise area which most medium/large gardens can accommodate. OK, so they will need hay to supplement their grazing, a little food twice a day and fresh water always available but then they will repay you with many years of fun and affection.
You have probably seen lots of stocky little Pygmy goats at Farm Parks etc but we breed the much rarer (and we think prettier!) Nigerian Dwarfs which are a little taller than Pygmies , with longer necks, smaller heads and much more graceful lines altogether. Just like you would expect a
dairy goat to look but in miniature. When full grown our goats' backs are just about knee-high so think Labrador dog size and you won't be far wrong.
Rules and regulations regarding keeping goats are also minimal. Before you can bring your goats home you have to contact the Rural Payments Agency who will give you a CPH (County Parish Holding) number and a herd number . There is no charge for these and no-one comes to check on your premises. We have to note your CPH number on a Movement Order when you collect your babies and that's about it.
We are currently in the middle of our kidding season and we have some really stunning little kids around. If you would like to come and see you are very welcome and a £50 non-refundable deposit will reserve your babies until they are weaned. This is usually around 4 months but we let the mums decide when they have had enough. We like to do everything as naturally as possible to produce healthy, confident babies and relaxed, contented mums. You may have noticed I say "babies" and we never sell one kid at a time. Goats are herd animals and a solitary goat would be a very unhappy little creature. Also, we do not separate twins as they are strongly bonded all their lives.
At the moment we have boy/girl twins, pairs of boys, pairs of girls, triplets and a couple of singles but this will not last long as our kids are reserved very quickly so if you have strong preferences it's best to contact us ASAP. At this point may I make a strong plea for you to consider a pair of boys.They are all castrated before they leave home so no "stinky billy" smells and no pushy behaviour, just calm and loving without those hormonal swings which the girls sometimes suffer. In keeping with our "natural rearing" policy we also do not remove the horns from our kids. This is a procedure which has to be performed while the babies are just a few days old and it involves burning their horn buds off with a red hot iron. As you can imagine this has been known to cause brain damage, even death so we prefer to leave them in their natural beautiful state. Goats are generally very placid creatures and ours never use their horns aggressively. They are a playful affectionate breed and what could be nicer than sitting in the sunshine with a cup of coffee
surrounded by your cuddly little goats?
All our little boys are £175 each

This includes ear-tagging as per DEFRA requirements, Vaccinating against a variety of clostridial diseases, tetanus etc, Worming and treatment for any external parasites.
We are now in our 23rd year of breeding goats and have been specialising in Nigerian Dwarfs for much of that time. The experience we have gained over these years is fully available to all of our owners at any time. We are at the end of the phone whatever questions you might have. We look for the very best homes for all our kids and so we only sell to lovely people!
You are very welcome to visit our babies anytime. Just let us
know when and I'll make sure the kettle is on!
P.S. We are right behind RAF Coningsby so why not make a day of it and visit the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight?Link to addhttp://www.preloved.co.uk/adverts/show/116419265/nigerian-dwarfpygmy-goat-kids-perfect-pets-from-175.html?link=%2Fclassifieds%2Fhorses-livestock%2Fgoats%2Ffor-sale
