2022 kidding was a whirlwind! The mommas all did a great job and each has a healthy kid (or 2… or 3) by their side. All our breeding goats are registered and tested negative for CL, CAE, and Johnes annually. You can find extra details, pictures, and video links for dams and sires on Our Goats page. I’ve listed a brief bio for each kid below as well as its status (available, pending, or retained). I’ll do my best to keep this up-to-date. If you’re interested in bringing home a Sweet Briar Farm goat please Contact Us.
We love our goats dearly and feel responsible for finding them their best home. We reserve the right to refuse sale of any animals at any time if we feel its in the best interest of the animal (deposits would be returned if this occurs). We do require a non-refundable $50 deposit to hold each kid until pickup, generally at 8 weeks of age. This is a down payment and will be subtracted from the sale price, the remainder to be paid at pickup in cash. The price for each kid includes registration, CD/T vaccination, disbudding, and an on-going mentorship support. Additional pictures of kids and dam’s udders available upon request.
New to goats? I made a short video to layout the basics for you, check it out here.
Calamity Jane:. Jane is very similar in appearance to Heeler although her roaning is more subtle. She is a beauty and patient with the snuggles and attention from our youngest son. h is little doeling is one of Phyllis X Partial Eclipse’s triplets. Phyllis is a first time freshener and her udder is high, well attached, and keeping all three kids happy. Jane was on our keeper-list until her heavily moonspotted sister Apaula popped out. Scoop her up to add color and personality to your own herd before I change my mind ;) $375. SOLD
Watch Heeler, Jane, and Apaula be born here.
Karla: Karla is a mini-me of her beloved mother Starla. She’s a hugger and has already found a loving family to take her home after weaning. SOLD.
Pablo: We were all WOWed by the stellar looks on this little guy! The dam, Starla, was bred to a purebred mini-Nubian buck Charlie. Heavy moonspotting like this runs in Pablo’s lines. Last year his uncle Apollo was born on Sweet Briar Farm and they could be identical twins. Such a cool kid! We’d like to Pablo find a home as a buck. He’s an F2 mini-Nubian. If bred to another F2 or higher the resulting kids will be F3. The higher the generation (F#) the more they should fit the breed standard for a mini Nubian. Pablo’s pendulous ears and his dam’s nice looking udder make us think he’d be a nice little herd sire at $325. SOLD

Shark-Bite: Absolutely stellar ADGA Purebred Nubian buckling in West Branch, MI. Land of Havilah X 6M Galaxy lines. Dam’s pedigree is loaded with Superior Genetics, *M, and ++*B genes. Her udder is capacious, teats are nicely sized and well placed, and her udder attachments are just incredible. Sire has a stacked pedigree with top 10 and Elite goats on either side. He is such a lover too! My herd is tested annually negative for CAE, CL, and Johnes. I’m sure I will regret letting this one go, PM me before I change my mind! This little guy is the total package!
Winston: This is little hunk is such a lover boy. He enjoys cuddles and is just getting old enough now to bounce around and play with his twin sister Willow. Winston is the product of our American Nubian Pam and a really high quality Purebred Buck, Aries. Check them out on Our Goats page. $200 as an unregistered wether. SOLD
See Winston and Willow’s birth video here.
Willow: Another mini-me, Willow looks just like her daddy, Aries. She’s soft and snuggly and hails from excellent milking genetics. Willow will be an ADGA American Nubian and should be both an excellent milker and mother like momma Pam. Her half-sister Starla freshened for the first time this month and her udder is looking very nice. Twins run in Willows lines as well as heavy moon spotting. $300 to bring Willow to your barn.
Nubians are my personal favorites (don’t tell the others). Here’s some good info about my favorite breed.
Jersey: Look at those incredible blue eyes! We bred our fainting doe Karen to a handsome little Nigerian Dwarf buck (Swallow Hill Partial Eclipse). Karen gave us twin bucklings and they are such neat little dudes. We call this brother Jersey because his facial markings remind us our Jersey Greta. He will make an excellent pet for someone. $200 takes this kid home as an unregistered wether. SOLD

Dexter: Meet Dexter, Jersey’s twin brother. We were all surprised when Dexter fainted in the barn this afternoon at only 4 days old. It looks like mini-fainters do faint…Mystery solved! This adorable little blue-eyed buckling will be an affectionate and entertaining addition to any farm family. $200 takes this kid home as an unregistered wether. SOLD
