Know well the condition of your flocks,
{And} pay attention to your herds........
Proverbs 27


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


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.


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.


We have tested our herd annually since 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 2012 for CAE, CL, and Brucellosis ~ Negative for the 7th 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! =)

I really hate to offer this doe for sale, however, she came to us at 3 months old, WILD. While we have tamed her down a lot, and she comes to my husband without any problems to be put to bed at night, she runs from me when it's time to go back in their pens after their walks ~ and takes great delight in dancing and jumping away from me, knowing full well I can't catch her. I'm way too old to chase goats any longer!! Brat!! She has really slimmed down since her baby photo's above, as I knew she would, and is a very nice Algedi bred doe, with an incredible pedigree. She has been covered by Trilogy Ranch White Cloud, and has not recycled in the 4 weeks since she was bred. She is a small doe, which is why she was held back longer than my other yearlings. Her due date is August.

Claire is being sold as "Exposed to Buck" with a first choice doe kid back as part of her sale.

$600/with a doe back


Joyful Hearts WC Anastasia


DOB: 3.30.14

Anastasia's ADGA Pedigree

Annie is long bodied, with wide rib spacing, with a level topline, tight toes, straight legs. She should make an excellent home milker or 4H dairy goat. She will be available as a bottle baby the first part of May. She is genetically black, with heavy white overlay. On her face, she has some lighter brown shades. She is very sweet and very flashy!


Joyful Hearts WC Penelope

DOB: 3.30.14

Pennie, 8 days old

Penelope's ADGA Pedigree

Littermate sister to Anastasia above, Penelope is a lovely chocolate buckskin, with splashes of white on her sides, and one front anklet. She is long, with a level rump, wide rib spacing, straight legs and tight toes. A bit more refined than her sister, Pennie has excellent general appearance, and is always the first to run and greet us, with her little brother trailing right behind. She should also make a productive milker, and a nice 4H doeling. Penelope is available the first part of May as a bottle baby. It is possible to deliver to the May Chino show, if we attend.



Due to a family tragedy, my buyer just cancelled her purchase of Kapono, so he is back up for sale and at a reduced price.

Kapono's ADGA Pedigree

I had a really hard time deciding which of these awesome boys to retain as they are both very nice. Kapono has excellent general appearance, lots of width throughout this boy, and is very long bodied. He has his daddy Algedi DJ Piper's straight front legs, and tight toes, and level topline. Extremely sweet and now a bottle baby, Kapono is out of my best doe, Joyful Hearts DS Tiger Tracks 3*D; LA: VEEV '89' who is MCH/CH Jobi Lacie *D, '92' granddaughter. Tia is milking a 1/2 gallon of milk a day as a 4 year old, 3rd freshener. She has nice open orifices and is a dream to milk with her soft udder texture. I don't sell bucks very often, but this boy is a keeper and deserves to be a herdsire. He will be ready for Fall breeding as he is extremely precocious. Available immediately, as he is still being bottle fed for a few more weeks. I have retained his littermate brother and he will be used this Fall.

I am going to solicit help this weekend and hopefully have a better photo of him.



Trilogy Ranch White Cloud


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 2014 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.



You must already have another companion baby, or wait until we have another wether for sale. See below for pricing. Pictures coming soon!

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! )

You can name him =)
