Welcome to Red Rail Farm Nigerians

AGS/ADGA registered Nigerian Dwarf goats
established 2010




About:
    Our introduction to Nigerians began as a pet project.  We so enjoyed having these goats on the farm, that we decided to raise them ourselves and so begin our breeding program.  Fortunately, one of the "pets" was an extremely well bred registered doe with great conformation, Harmony Mtn Pa Zoe
    Today we maintain a tiny herd of 3-5 quality breeding does.  Does are selected for their overall conformation, dairy character, temperament, and bloodlines.   Our buck was chosen for his dairy and show genetics and his overall conformation, as well as the polled and blue eyed genes he carries through his sire and dam.  All of our goats are registered with both AGS and ADGA.  We can't guarantee our kids will be in your lap friendly, but we strive for that and keep does we feel will pass this trait on.  We find satisfaction in offering healthy, correct, friendly animals for sale.

Herd Management:
    Our goats are vaccinated annually.  We trim hooves and deworm on a regular schedule.  Each mature goat receives a bi-annual copper bolus.  Our goats are provided with mineral, fresh water, alfalfa pellets, BOSS, beet pulp and grass hay or grass pasture year round.   We feed our pregnant and lactating does a special grain ration.   To maintain optimum overall health, we adjust each goats ration as needed to best suit their particular needs.
    At kidding time we make every effort to be present when each doe delivers to make sure our kids are up and nursing as soon as possible and to desensitize them to handling.  All horned kids are disbudded and all kids are vaccinated for CD&T.
    We do not normally test for CAE/CL and Johne's.  We maintain a closed herd that never leaves Red Rail Farm.  Our foundation stock all tested negative prior to coming to us, and any new additions either come from negative herds or are tested before arriving.   We are happy to test any goat being sold, at the buyer's request and expense.
    After a good deal of research into the benefits of their use, we recently began adding a few herbals to our goats diet.  We are anxious to see their impact on the well being of our animals.

Red Rail Farm Pattycake  AGS/ADGA
chamoisee

DOB:  17 March 2009Height:
        
This sweet tempered little chamoisee doe with moonspots is dairy bred on both sides of her pedigree.  She has nice length of body, good angulation, and a nice chest but would like to see a bit flatter rump.  She presented us with blue eyed buckskin twin doelings with her first freshening in 2012.  She has a nice udder with good attachments. Her extended pedigree is filled with champions.

Pattycake will be offered for sale after her March 2014 kids have been weaned. $200 open/$250 bred

Marigold is the oldest of the first twins born on Red Rail Farm.  She is a keeper because of her appealing personality and dainty little head, not to mention her blue eyes!  We also want to preserve and improve upon this bloodline.  She has good length of body, nice chest, and good angulation. 
She is maturing into a beautiful doe and I am very excited about breeding her in 2013.

Opal was purchased in 2012.  Her sire was named RCH in 2012 at Wine Country Classic and her Grandsire (Camanna TM Pretty Blue Fox)was named CH at the same show!   A bit out of proportion as a doeling, she is showing improved conformation with maturity.  I would still like to see better angulation and a little deeper chest, but her length of body is nice and she is nice and wide.

SOLD!  Congratulations to the Vega Family!

After much searching we finally purchased our first buck in 2013.  We are very excited about the bloodlines that Creamsicle, aka Buddy, will be bringing to our herd.  He is long and level, has a tiny dished head, and nice angulation and width.  His pedigree is full of outstanding individuals with proven show records, known for their dairy character and strong mammary systems.   In addition to this, Buddy also has polled and blue eyed genetics from his sire and dam.  
We want to thank Janet Day for selling Creamsicle to us.

We really like this little doeling and plan to retain her for our breeding program.  She is VERY well put together and was exactly what we were wanting to see in our kids.  Even as a youngster, she has beautiful length of body, nice angulation, good chest and a delicate dished head, as well as a very nice topline.  She does carry polled and blue eyed genetics that we are hoping may crop up with her kids.

We are excited to announce the addition of this very refined doe to our breeding program.   I had hoped to one day find a doe with this breeding (Camanna RHB Blue Delilah) to cross with Creamsicle.  She arrived at Red Rail Farm February 27, 2014 as a bred doe (due to kid in June) and will be bred in October to Creamsicle.  Lacey has very strong dairy and polled/blue eyed genetics.  Crossing our fingers some of her Creamsicle kids will be blue eyed and polled.
We want to thank Makenzie Frost of Rocky Acher for selling this sweet doe to us.
