My passion for goats began in the spring of 2002. I was at a Memorial Day party in west Texas at my friends
Sonny & Nancy’s house. As many
ranchers in the area, they raised goats.
The baby goats were so cute & I fell in love with them. I asked Sonny & Nancy if I could buy a
baby goat & take it home with me.
“Let us think about it” they said.
The next morning, Sonny said, “I have a baby goat for you, but she is not for sale”. One of their older does had a set of
triplets. The two males of the set were
quite large. The third baby was a little
female. She was struggling for food,
competing against her two brothers.
Sonny & Nancy told me I could have her to bottle raise.
Knowing nothing about goats, I headed back to Houston. I had no idea how to feed or take care of
her, but how hard could it be??? I named
her “Angel”. She slept in the house
& I fed her soy milk to begin with.
Can you imagine how that settled with her??? She almost died. Then I put her on goat milk replacer, but she
was still touch and go for quite awhile.
I bottle fed that baby goat until she was a year old!!! I still have her today. (I
would like to note that I NO LONGER feed baby goats "Goat Milk
Replacer". If I have a bottle baby, I feed them whole vitamin D
cows milk from the grocery store. Goat Milk Replacers are NOT
good for baby goats, and can actually kill them).
Later that same year, Sonny & Nancy gave me another baby
goat. I named her Hattie. Still today, Hattie & Angel are the “herd
For several years after that, I ran a goat rescue. I wanted to keep all goats from slaughter,
but of course that is impossible. I
purchased several bucklings & wethered them, so they could have a permanent
I discovered Nigerian Dwarf & Pygmy goats, and decided
to start breeding them. All of our bucks
are registered Nigerian Dwarfs. We have
both Nigerian Dwarf & Pygmy does. We
have selected our registered herd carefully.
Our base is mostly Flat Rocks. I
have traveled to Azle, Texas several times to purchase our breeding
stock. I have also purchased stock from Belle Starr Farm, Happy Kids Hollow & RJR Miniatures.
Our “for sale” goats vary in price. Prices are based on blood lines,
conformation, color & personality.
We are in an aggressive CAE testing program. All of our goats are CAE negative.
I hope you enjoy viewing our goats. Please contact us if you have any questions.
