Our Future Nubian Herdsire

Last Friday I got a new bottle baby goat... after having 45+ of my own you wouldn't think I'd be excited to get another one. But. . . I was.

This is a special one though. He came from Nicole's herd in Tahlequah - Goat Town USA. She has a small her of Nubians that she milks, but these goats aren't just any regular Nubian - these girls (& guy) are NICE, they come from some awesome Nubian bloodlines and you can tell.

The sire to our new little guy is Pruitville's Challenger. He is just 13 months old now, is a very big boy and is so gentle. He is out of Pruitville's L/M Triumph and CH Pruitville's N/E Razzberry.

The dam to our new boy is Goat Town USA Hazel. She's a big beautiful 3 year old doe. Her sire is ANM Caprines Pepper, who I don't have pictures of but I did have the pleasure of meeting him in person a few years ago and he was a huge and very nice buck. Her dam is Paw-Paw Nicole's Ebony.

And now to the one who this post is all about. . . I don't have a name for him yet!! I think it's going to be "Powerhouse", but it's not for sure yet ;). He is a very sweet boy and I hope he'll be a great herdsire for our Nubian does come breeding season this fall!
