The Mini-Nubian is a breed which is the product of a cross between Nigerian Dwarf and Nubian. The grandsire, Garrett, was a gorgeous cream-colored Nigerian Dwarf with the greatest temperament. He would let small children ride him. He was unfortunately lost during Hurricane Isabel, but his children live on.
I love Nubians, and the mini Nubians are REALLY cute! Did you ever see them? I have a friend who raises them, but she's out in California. That goat pictured is cute, but it's not a Nubian at all. Nubians have a roman nose and looonng drop ears. Check out Meg's cuties at: www.dustytrailranchgoats.com
Oh shoot! For some reason, her site won't open (I just tried)... maybe she's doing "housekeeping" on it. But, you can see one of her beautiful bucks here: www.goatshopper.com/MiniBucks.html

did you visit the page? she is breeding them to get blue eyes and something aobut the ears.. I dunno about all that but she explains it on her page..
We are breeding for long ears, blue eyes, and mammary development. This year, we bred the 50/50 mini-dams and all our Nubian does to our 50/50 mini-Nubian buck, Hamm. This produced seven 75/25 F-2 babies, and, so far, six F-1, 75/25 babies. I have noticed that all the babies from the Nubian mothers have great ears. The 50/50 F-2’s have all different kinds! All, have gorgeous blue eyes.
Susan holds a lapful of 1st generation Mini-Nubians: Jack, Jill, Wendy and Clint (in front), as Kaffy (dam of Jack & Jill) looks on.
Little Joe is my Purebred Nubian buck that I will use when necessary to pull the ears back down on the Mini-Nubians
