Our Nubians are all from nice show lines, so yes they have those gorgeous roman noses too. We really liked the Boers that some friends' have so I may eventually decide to get some to raise up with the excess milk from our Nubian herd. It seems like I know multiple people that have had both breeds together for that very reason. We are going to raise the wethers from our does this year for the freezer so I guess we will see how that goes before investing in Boers too.

Yes a lot of folks we know that raise boers keep several Nubians in case they need the milk.

Re: showing off our new doe!

She's adorable. Enjoy . One of my friends is about to start homesteading, and I recommended a Nubian just from things I read here and there. But I think she's leaning toward a micro-mini cow instead despite their price b/c the presence of any goatiness in the milk would spoil it for her. I don't like milk goaty either, although I've adjusted somewhat b/c I'm off of cow dairy. I've heard nubians taste much more like rich cow's milk than like the goat milk at the store though.

Thanks I can't wait to breed them! If you lived closer I have a 3/4 Nubian 1/4 saanen (both milk breeds) yearling doe never bred I would totally give you and her bff (a Nubian wether) since keeping them alone is cruel she would need a buddy
