Came to us as a very inexpensive buck without papers that would make a good starter for our girls first freshenings. He has performed his task admirably at this point, siring four kids, three of which have survived.

Notes

Oct. 15, 2011

In October 2011, Emmet performed what most might consider a miracle, given his stature. He successfully bred Aida, siring one little fur ball. As best we can tell, this would be the start of a “mini-Nubian” breed, though it would need some cleaning up for it to be a true Mini-Nubian.

At any rate, Emmett is quite the little man. We left him with Aida and an overturned box for a night, and this is what happened.
