NIGERIAN DWARF GOATS FOR SALE

This is the aspect of goat keeping that we do not look forward to. In order to make room for some promising new kids from our current breedings, we have to make hard decisions every summer on who to keep, and which will move on to another herd. If you are looking for an immediate milk supply for your homestead or dairy, please let us know if one of our ladies may meet your needs. You will also find wonderful pet goats, as well as kids who show potential for as 4H and show prospects. Many of our does are top ten milkers as all of our goats come from the top milk and show lines in the country

WHY DO YOU WANT GOATS?

When I get inquiries about purchasing goats I always ask this question first ~Why do you want to own goats? Which is always a good question to ask yourself as well. *smile* Of course there is no "wrong" answer ~ but your reason (s) will help ensure that the Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats you purchase from Joyful Hearts Farm will meet your specific needs and goals ~ whether it be showing, home dairying, acquiring new breeding stock, brush clearers, or as family pets.

At Joyful Hearts Farm we are very proud of our beautiful goats. Our breeding goals aim for correct little dairy goats that will be a pleasure to own, no matter what your goals may be.

WHY A GOAT FROM JOYFUL HEARTS FARM?

We initially made a huge investment in acquiring the highest quality foundation animals. This is reflected by Milk Stars (for example: *D's and *S's and *B's that you see after the goats name); by high Linear Appraisal scores, Classification scores, show wins (MCH/ARMCH), etc. We purposely keep our herd very small so that each goat gets quality care and individual attention.

OUR MOTTO IS "QUALITY ~ NOT QUANTITY!"

We have tested our herd annually since our first goats arrived in 2005 for CAE & CL via WADDL to ensure our buyers that our herd is disease free. We have a Licensed Vet draw the blood, so you can trust our test results to be accurate and true. We also back up our claims by providing whole herd test results to our buyers upon request. Our last testing was done April 2014 for CAE, CL, and Brucellosis ~ Negative for the 9th year in a row!!

We are available after your purchase to provide ongoing support.

In early summer we prepare each buck and doe for the upcoming breeding season. We do this by giving herbal, vitamin, and mineral supplementation. Prenatal care continues throughout pregnancy, and after kidding. We also carefully evaluate who each doe will be paired with in order to hopefully produce the most outstanding kids. Our does are then bred from late Summer through late Fall, with kids arriving early January through March. Once in awhile we will breed a couple of does for Fall kiddings. Check the kidding schedule for updates.

We dam raise our kids, but also combine bottle feeding whenever possible. This is producing hardy, healthy kids for us that are also people friendly. Read what others are saying about their Joyful Hearts dam raised kids! Buyer Testimonials . Our kids are put on an Herbal deworming and cocci protocol beginning at 2 weeks of age, as well as probiotics, and mineral supplementation prior to kids leaving our farm. We disbud and tattoo for you, as well.

If you are thinking of starting out with these wonderful dwarf goats, or are looking to add some new genetics to your existing herd, please consider a Joyful Hearts goat or two! =)

$25 Discount for any Joyful Hearts goats that go to proven ADGA Linear Appraising, show, and/or DHIR 305 herds. $100 discount to a buyer who participates in all three.

ADGA Genetics Page

Dar is a beautiful doe, who matured very quickly as a yearling. She earned her AGS dairy star as a yearling milker, milking a very impressive 3.6#'s of milk! Dar's dam, SG Alethia MH Dew a Little Dance 2*M; ++VV '85' is line bred on the gorgeous (sadly, now deceased) SGCH Rosasharn's UMT Tupelo Honey 4*D; LA: EEEE '91', and is always at the top of her classes in the show ring as a yearling first freshener, and was awarded her Superior Genetics title.

Dar's paternal GrandDam SGCH Algedi Farm H Purple Rain 4*M, 4*D, LA: VEEV '90', was #5 for High Milk (1,140 #'s), #4 for Butterfat, and #4 for Protein in 2012 (AGS); and Top 10 in 2010 on one day milk test, and Top 10 in 2011 on 305 day milk test for milk, protein, and butterfat! Rain has a high and wide mammary with a broad area of attachment, strong MSL, and super easy to milk teats, according to Sarah at Castle Rock Farm where Rain resides.

I hate to let this girl go, but I must cut back my numbers. I have retained both her 2014 and 2015 daughters, and I have her paternal 1/2 sister here as well. Dar is an extremely sweet doe, though quite bossy to the other goats. I would like to see her go to a herd who is on DHIR, as well as seeing her in the show ring. I will warn you though, try as I might, she hates to walk on a lead.

Beautiful general appearance, dairy, elegant and a bit shy, Ocean is line bred on the late, great +*B GCH Algedi Farm Drops of Jupiter *S LA EEE 91. Excellent 4H show prospect and excellent milk potential. Her dam, Dayze milked 3#'s of milk at 45 days fresh as a very small yearling first freshener. Dazye was a pleasure to milk, having nice sized teats, open orifices and butter soft udder. Dayze was appraised just 2 weeks fresh, but still received a VG appraisal score. I had planned on keeping Ocean, but circumstances are forcing me to reduce my herd by half, and since she is the only dry yearling here, and the odd doe out, I am offering her for sale.

Ocean may be pregnant ~ or developing a precocious udder ~ pending pregnancy test ~ if she is, she is due late June and was bred to Alethia SHH Worth Repeating *B!

Fiona is the spitting image of her gorgeous dam, Tia, who just milked 5#'s on her milk test as a 4th freshener, earning her ADGA 1*M dairy star!! Tia had already earned her AGS dairy star as a 2nd freshener. Fiona is very dairy and elegant, with a strong pedigree and lots of milk behind her, both top and bottom. I would keep her if I could! She is super sweet and was the "runt" of the litter of Quints, so has always been super special. I had planned on keeping both her and another sister, but I have to keep my numbers way down. I will be extremely picky where this little beauty goes. I have retained her sister, Phoebe, who can be seen on the Jr Doe page! Very promising little doe with a strong pedigree and tons of milk behind her. She should do very well as a prospective show goat, and milker.

ADGA Genetics

Cloudy is heavily linebred on the most well known Nigerian Dwarf doe of all time, SGCH/MCH Algedi Farm DJ Honey Dew 1*M; LA: EEEE '91' (sadly recently deceased). Honey Dew has proven herself to excel in the milk pail, as well as the show ring, with five Best Doe In Show wins, 10 Best Of Breed wins, and 8 times Sr. Grand Champion doe, as well as having one of the highest Linear Appraisal scores in the Nigerian Dwarf breed! I am hoping that Cloudy will pass along some of Honey Dew's greatness!!

His first daughter will be freshening in late May '15!

Cloudy was appraised as a yearling and his strongest assets were that he has an Excellent back, Excellent Dairy Strength, scored Very Good in his rump, feet, rear legs, and Very Good in shoulder assembly. Good plus head, and good plus front legs. He is smoothly blended, with tight shoulders, and long bodied, with a level topline, wide rib spacing, and beautiful general appearance. Cloudy is also loaded with lots of Superior Milk Genetic Awards in his pedigree.

Don't miss out on this outstanding and well bred buck! He is a very sweet boy, and easy to handle and has beautiful kids on the ground. His first daughter, Joyful Hearts WC Promise is due to kid in early June.

Kealoha's Pedigree


Aloha's dam, "Tia" has very strong, VERY long lactations, as does her littermate sister, and granddam. Tia milked 5#'s of milk on her One Day Milking Competition with AGS & ADGA!!! If you are looking to add milk, this is your young man!! At appraisal last year, Tia's appraiser said she was "that close" to getting an E on her mammary. Hopefully this summer, when she turns 5 yrs old, she will! She scored VEEV '89' under one of the toughest appraisers last year, but this last appraisal she was in one of her "moods". She loves to tuck her rump when she gets nervous, and unfortunately, she did just that and the appraiser marked her down for GA, which I did not agree with at all.

Aloha's sire, Piper, scored an EEEE '90', however, he went OH due to having very sharp withers, so was marked down to an '89'. All of Piper's sons and daughters have been very well under the height limit, he actually appears to be a down sizer buck! Piper's pedigree speaks for itself!!!!

Aloha is extremely well bred, and this is a great opportunity to add these genetics to your breeding program.

If you want MILK, long lactations, soft udder texture, and large teats, as well as strong general appearance, and did I say milk?, this is your boy! His coloring is icing on the cake. A gorgeous chamoise with some white, Finley should make someone a wonderful Jr herdsire, being LONG and dairy. Tia milked 5#'s of milk on her One Day Milking Competition with AGS & ADGA!!! At appraisal last year, Tia's appraiser said she was "that close" to getting an E on her mammary. Hopefully this summer, when she turns 5 yrs old, she will!

She loves to tuck her rump when she gets nervous, and unfortunately, she did just that and the appraiser marked her down for GA, which I did not agree with at all.

Riptide's pedigree speaks for itself, being heavily line bred on the gorgeous CH Algedi Farm DJ Splash O' Honey LA: VEEE '90' E, who is littermate sister to the amazing Honey Dew, a legend in the ND breed!!

Finley is extremely well bred, and this is a great opportunity to add these milk genetics to your breeding program.

We do sometimes offer a mature buck when he no longer fits into our breeding program, or if we need to downsize our herd. If you are interested in any of our current bucks, we suggest reserving a 2016 buck kid!
We only offer bucks from outstanding mammaries. Bucks kids offered for sale that do not end up selling may be retained for our own breeding program and offered for sale at a later date for a higher price once they are proven herd sires.

We currently do not have any pet wethers for sale ~ however we have one more doe due to kid in late May ~ Please email to be on a waiting list (free reservation)

Wethers make the BEST pets ~ as well as making wonderful companions for a doe or buck. They also make excellent weeders!!
Note: We do not sell single goats unless you already have another goat as a companion! )

All of our wethers are sold as Bottle Babies, unless weaned at time of sale. Each baby wether will be disbudded (unless polled), given their first BoSe shot at 1 month old; hooves trimmed at 1 month of age.
