Nomad Nubians began in 1995 when I gathered my first herd of Nubian goats. In the summer of 1996, I packed up my old Ford pickup with camping gear, and loaded the 5 goats in the back of the truck, which had a canopy on it. This became the goats' house for the summer. The goats and I spent the summer at a "primitive skills school" in the mountains near Grangeville, Idaho. My friends and I lived in tipis, brush shelters, tents, campers, and a big "earthlodge" that we built. We spent our days learning and practicing skills such as brain-tanning deer hides, friction fire, and identifying edible and medicinal plants. The goats were right at home. They followed me around, grazing on the brush, just doing whatever I did. When I sat down at the big bonfire every evening with my friends, the goats would all lie down around the fire with me, until I got up. I became known as "The Goat Lady", and I've been a goat lady ever since!
Through the years, I have retained breeding stock that are strong milkers & easy to hand milk. They have excellent udder and body conformation. I strive for show quality animals. I also have a preference for spots, so I usually have a nice selection of spotted Nubians. I have been practicing CAE prevention since 1996. Kids are bottle raised on heat-treated colostrum and pasteurized goat milk. My herd is also negative for CL.
In 2009, I decided to branch out a little with several other breeds, and now I am experimenting with a few Sables and Mini Nubians.
