My husband and i have been homesteading for 3 years on a shoestring budget with full time jobs and being parents. Wev reached a wall that between renting and financial issues we just wont be able to get any further. But we have found a solution in trucking as a family for a year or so to build our CDL exspirence and our money to buy our own land. The isssue is we must sell my beloved nubian goats or find someone to watch them for a year or more. If possible id love to find someone to watch them and spred the wounderful goatiness they are. Id be very greatful if someone could watch them in exchange for any milk or kids they produce. Id send them with there premier one fence and energiser. They are great foragers and very freindly. I can also throw in a young freindly lamb for butcher or pet. Theres only 3 :two does and one buck. And i could deliver within reason to people living in the U.S. This would be a great opportunity for someone whos considering goats on there homestead! Thank you for listening!

I hope this works out for you!  Would it help folks to know in what part of the country you (and your goats) are currently located?

Sent a purple mooseage, we run a herd in CA for fire prevention as a co-op, and would be happy to absorb a few extra head for as long as you need.

I'm also curious where you are.  I'm 25 miles N. of Boston...probably not your area, but might be able to help.
