Nigerian Dwarf Goats

Parallel 45 Farm is currently home to five adult Nigerian Dwarf goats and three kids. Scroll down to meet our current caprine pals. If you are in the area and want to stop by, we would be happy to introduce you to these guys; they are packed full of affection and personality!

This little guy is brand new to the farm! He came to us from Black Dog Farm in Livingston, MT and is going to be our herd sire! That means he will be the father of all of the goat babies born here on the farm next year! His name is Mr. Beauregarde, but he goes by BG for short.  He is a pretty laid back little guy, but loves to play and get nose scratches. We can’t wait to see what else he brings to the farm in the future!

Miss Minnie Pearl was born in March of 2018. She is very small for her age and and looks like a little peanut next to our other goats. This is especially funny because she is currently the second oldest goat on the farm. Currently we are not planning on breeding Pearl due to her small stature. She is a fan favorite with our customers and the most docile goat in our herd.

Bechler Rose joined Parallel 45 Farm in October of 2018. She was born at the end of June 2018 and we hope to breed her in the summer of 2019 for fall 2019 babies! Bechler is the most aloof of our current group of goats but get out of her way when the licorice treats come out! She will plow over just about anything to get to us for licorice treats. Miss Bechler came to us from Black Dog Farm in Livingston, MT.

Grace O’Malley is a half sibling to Crash and was also born in April of 2018. She is the OG doe of our group and will be the first goat we breed here on the farm! We are hoping to deliver her babies in the summer of 2019. She was also a bottle baby and loves her chin scratches! However, as soon as the hay or grain comes out, she will bail on scratches for food, every. single. time. Both Grace and Crash came to us from Hyalite Farm in Bozeman, MT.

Crash is our resident whether (neutered male) and one of the OGs of the group. He was born in April of 2018 and has come to Parallel 45 to be a great companion for our lovely does. He was a bottle baby (meaning that we raised him on a bottle from 6 weeks old until weaning age). He is the most friendly goat in the group and will be the first to run up for chin scratches and snuggles every time.

This is adorable trio is the newest group of animals to arrive on the farm. Dixie (in the back) is a 2 year old Nigerian Dwarf doe who had her first set of babies this year (pictured front). Dixie is our first milking goat on the farm and we are so excited to be enjoying the company of her babies too! The white one is a young boy that we will be retaining to be buddies with our buckling, and the brown one is a little doeling who we hope will grow up to be as great of a milker as her mother!
