The mini nubian is smaller than the Nubian, but larger than the Nigerian Dwarf.  Our does average around 24-26 inches at the withers (shoulder).  Their smaller size makes them a lot easier to handle than their larger relatives, so hoof trimming, clipping, showing and milking become much easier. They are just the right size for children.  The MiniNubian is bred to look like the Nubian with those adorable floppy ears and roman noses, but to stay small.  Another advantage of the MiniNubian (especially for those with limited acreage) is that the Mini Nubian can produce 2/3rds the amount of milk as a Nubian on about half the feed.  Talk about efficient!  The MiniNubian makes the perfect home milker as they give lots of rich milk that is excellent for cheese-making, yogurt, butter etc.

Our main focus here at Goat Trails is to produce Minis with Correct Nubain characteristics and udder development.  I am very picky about conformation, udder attachments, teat placement and big orifices.  If these things are in place first then we can add flash, blue eyes and polled. Many people buy for flash and forget the rest.  You'll find we have the whole package!
