Moon Ruby Farm is home to a relatively small herd of "Nigies" chosen for strong milk production, good udder conformation, and character. We're very committed to the little herd we've put together over the years, and not just because they're pretty and sweet and funny and have great personalities!
With our primary focus being to preserve and improve the Nigerian Dwarf breed, we carefully select our breeding goats to include does and bucks with well-respected and award-winning pedigrees. This is not to brag! We're not like that. We don't even show goats ourselves, being happily busy with other farm projects. It all just means that because Moon Ruby kids have good bloodlines that have proven quite successful in the show ring, they make for excellent and dependable milkers, worthy breeding stock for other herds, and simply great companions for the backyard farm.
It's important to us that we stay small, so that each doe and kid has a close relationship with us humans. And we register every goat with the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) to ensure that our kids end up in good homes, with people who understand this exceptional breed.
Breeding Does ♀
Sugar-Pine JB Espresso Madness
Our primary herdsire is Sugar-Pine JB Espresso Madness -- we prefer to call him Mr. Mister. Espresso is a strong, small buck with great lines. He has blue eyes and is homozygous for the gene, which means that his kids always have blue eyes, and their kids will likely blue eyes, too (depending on the dam). He also has a good amount of polled heritage in his background. Color/pattern: black and cream buckskin with blue eyes.
