Home of beautiful Pygora Goats. Besides being practical, fiber-producing, weed-reducing, garden fertilizing animals, Pygoras are great fun!
We are a small, family-based operation, and we have been breeding and raising Pygora goats since 1996. We offer a select few healthy, happy Pygora goats. Our animals are registered with the Pygora Breeders Association (PBA). Each goat is well-loved and can provide excellent fiber for your spinning needs or wants.
The 2016 Kidding Season abruptly arrived on a chilly Sunday morning - January 31. Carmelita gifted us with a solid black girl, aptly named Bubbles. Her formal name is Charlene, but our neighbor girl called her Bubbles, and the name stuck, since it fits her personality: Bubbly. Bubbles, who is the only kid with waddles, had a rough start, with the cold and her mom being aged, and so forth. Being the first born, she received loads of attention, including sleeping in the house! As a result, she is super friendly and adorable.
Three days later, Alex presented us with twins: Rocco, a black boy with white appointments, and Missy, another solid black girl, again named by our spirited young neighbor. There was a slight resting period of a couple weeks, during which time we kept a vigil baby watch, and our electric bill went up considerably due to our freshly plumbed barn heater. Then, on 2-19-16, an abnormally frigid day, I discovered that Bea had a little girl named Gracie. Gracie was doing fine, up and nursing, but Juliet seemed quite distressed. Then I realized she might have given birth, too? She acted very strangely and confused, and seemed to want to steal Bea's baby. Upon a terse search, I discovered a small, seemingly lifeless mound half buried in the straw, over by the doorway to the pasture. I immediately scooped it up and tried to invigorate it, will it to life, even though in my heart I thought for sure it was dead. I tried to maintain my professionalism, and keep my emotions at bay. Then I saw a slight eye flicker! I ran the baby into the house, and dashed him in a bucket of super warm water! A miracle! After warming him up and then rubbing him with a towel and drying him off by the pellet stove, he fully recovered and was able to nurse on mom and all is well. Many thanks to Caprine Supply for their article on how to warm up cold newborns! I am still on a high for having saved little Charles, who is now fit as a fiddle!
After the fiasco with Charles, I decided I better peek in on Bea and Gracie to be sure all was still well. While I had been occupied with Charles, Bea had been busy! Out popped Tim and Ryan! Bea had triplets! Not being the brightest, I don't think she fully appreciated that she had 3 babies. She is a terrific mom to Gracie, and gave Tim and Ryan each a good start, but after a few days it became apparent that she considered the boys as ugly step children, so they have now joined Bubbles as Bottle Baby Buddies. So cute.

The next day Martinique produced Sandhya, a solid black girl. February 21st was a busy day. Oprah had a white girl named Lea, and Cleo had 2 almost solid black boys: Matt and Tom. The following Saturday, Celia had our 2nd white girl, not really white, more a light cream, named Nicole.
Nothing else has happened since Nicole came on the scene. We've been busy doing shots, dehorning, and playing with the kids.
