New Addition

the sweet & gentle Capsand Creamery Walker
We are excited to introduce Capsand Creamery Walker to our herd!  He is a tricolor belted buckskin with white poll and frosting.  His sire is Dragonfly IH Bandito Burrito *S & his dam is Capsand Creamery Andromeda.  He is bringing great genetics and dairy potential for the future of Sweet Land Nigerians.  Christine brought him from her farmstead in Vermont in exchange for Sweet Land Levi, the blue-eyed buckling of Kizzy & James, born this spring.  Levi will have a wonderful home in the Green Mountain State with Christine’s beautiful herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats.  It will be exciting to see the future potential of these two bucks!

Goat's Milk Soap has superior moisturizing properties
I could definitely become addicted to Christine's sea salt caramels!
Along with Walker, Christine brought along some goodies made from her farmstead goat’s milk.  The sea salt caramels are delicious - the perfect blend of sweetness and saltiness, with a depth of flavor and creaminess that only comes from high butterfat Nigerian Dwarf milk.  The bar of cold process soap, scented with peppermint essential oil, has abundant lather and is extremely moisturizing.  She kindly shared the recipe for the soap with us - and we are excited to try it this summer.  Finally, she made some lovely lip balm made with beeswax and honey from her own hives, and a card with her illustration of a goat kid.  It was lovely visiting with Christine, talking goats, and enjoying her wonderful products made with amazing goat's milk!


Spring Kids 2014


The tasks of kidding time include bottle feeding, disbudding, castrating, vaccinating, and tattooing for registration.  We spend lots of time with the baby kids to ensure they are friendly with humans and well-mannered.  They also learn to eat hay and grain and drink water from a pail by modeling the older herd members.  We want to ensure that each kid has the best possible start in life.  All kids we sell are disbudded, vaccinated for CDT, come with registration papers (if applicable), and wethered (for castrated males/pets) no sooner than 8 weeks.

Each doeling and buckling comes with their own completed & signed application for AGS registration.  Your goat will receive a tattoo in each ear for AGS registration & identification purposes.  Kids will be disbudded (horn buds removed).  Each kid will receive probiotics, vitamin & mineral supplements, and herbal dewormer while under our care.  Kids will receive a CDT vaccination at 4 & 8 wks of age.  Samples of Purina goat chow and hay will be provided at pickup.  Kids will be weaned & eating/drinking on their own prior to release (at 8-10 wks).  Hooves will be trimmed.  I can demonstrate hoof trimming at pickup if requested.  All goats will receive beneficial probiotics prior to leaving to aid with the stresses associated with travel.  We are here to help with any questions before, as well as after the sale. We welcome any updates & photo's of the kids in their new loving homes!
