Porter - F6
Mini Nubian Buck
July 23rd Update: Porter, Mini Nubian buck Houdini, has been moved to the Mini Nubian doe pen for the breeding season. Let's b,e honest he moved himself to the doe pasture here at Cotton Bean Goat farm. We are looking forward to more Porter baby goats in late 2020 / early 2021. We got a lot of spots and blue eyes from him earlier in the 2020 breeding / kidding season.
Porter is our handsome F6, blue eyed, moonspotted, polled mini Nubian buck! Not only does he have it all physically he also has a sweet, loving personality to match! I found this unicorn in Shreveport, Louisiana. I had him transported in which was a nightmare. This was my first transport experience and it was not a good one. I worried for days on end about him but he made it safe and healthy. We did our typical new to the farm goat protocal and after 6 to 8 weeks he was moved to the buck pen. This mini nubian buck loves his humans and the does! His personality reminds me of a bottle baby not a dam raised buckling.
This sweet mini nubian buck can usually be found getting into something that he shouldn’t. For instance, he likes to climb into the goat hay feeder. I think he prefers the hay feeder over the buck goat pasture! We have a boer billy who kept getting stuck in the hay feeder. We made the openings a little bigger and Porter quickly found he could climb in. He was also caught squeezing into the doe and doeling pen by forcing himself though the opening of a cattle panel. He also managed squeeze in between the fence and hay feeder! We need to fatten him up a little so he can’t squeeze into random places!
This mini nubian buck should have been named Houdini! Every farm has a Houdini and I am glad this buck is ours. Lucky, he loves treats and is very easy to handle. Look Porter I have a fig newton!!!
May 2020: Here are some updated pictures of our now grown F6 Moon Spotted Mini Nubian Buck. His blue eyes still stand out again his black fur.
This in your pocket Buck / boy has such a sweet and gently personality. He is also a little goofy!
