Welcome to the Farm!
Thank you for your interest in Halo-M Nubians. The Halo-M herd began in 1999 when I purchased my first Nubian doe, Luck-E-G Creshendoe. I favor strong but elegant goats that produce well and have good temperament and udder attachment. I am striving to breed animals with beautiful general appearance, structural correctness, well attached and productive udders, and pleasant dispositions. No small task-to be sure! We appraised in 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2013. It has been so encouraging to see the improvment in scores over that time. Scores and comments from the appraiser are very promising and I look forward to seeing those scores go up even more in future appraisals. Production is an important factor in our breeding and we were on DHIR-milk test in 2008-2013. We are not testing in 2014 because of some other time commitments, but I see this as a temporary pause in records. In 2011 I added an Oberhasli doe to the herd. I purchased her because of her lovely personality and it is just an extra perk that she is from excellent top ten production lines. In 2013 I was lucky enough to get an oberhasli buckling from one of the top herd in the country. So the herd has some added diversity with the addition of the oberhasli 'couple". We are expecting the first purebred Obers under our herd name in March of 2014.
We are located on 5 acres in beautiful Pend Oreille county in Washington state. We love being in the country, but find it convenient to be only 35 miles from the large city of Spokane-an easy commute south on Highway 2. We are also close to Idaho, only about 10 miles from the state border. Our 5 acre property is lightly treed with large pines. The goats enjoy browsing through the woods and munching on pine and fir needles.
We currently have 5 Senior does and 3 junior does Kidding this spring (2014). Kidding will start in February and is spread out until April. Confirmed due dates will be listed on the sale page as breeding begins. Click on "Goats for Sale" tab above to view.Our prices are very reasonable at this time.
