NUTMEG is one of my favorite goats. She has the nicest personality ever and has beautiful breed character and conformation
to boot! Her sire Jasper has thrown gorgeous kids, and Nutmeg is a great example of that. Nutmeg's dam, 'Arthur', is a lovely
doe that milks like a cow. She averages around 7 lbs a day. Nutmeg got her beautiful breed character from her sire - long,
soft, well shaped ears and a slightly roman nose. Nutmeg is a smoothly blended doe with very nice overall conformation. She
has a sweet face and a lovely personality. Nutmeg had a chance to prove just how sweet she is when she broke her left rear
leg in the spring of 2008. She was so well behaved about it and submitted to the many x-rays and vet appointments with a
sweet and loving attitude. As long as I was with her, she was calm and content. The vet thought we'd have to sedate her
to set her leg, but Nutmeg we so well behaved we didn't have to (for which we are very grateful as anesthesia is dangerous
for goats). After a pretty hefty vet bill, Nutmeg is recovering well from her accident and is regaining strength quickly.
Although she will probably always have a limp, it looks like she will be able to live a pretty normal life.
2007: Nutmeg was 2nd in her class in the online goat show. She placed right behind Grace who took Jr. GCH.
