[Senior Does] [First Fresheners]
[Jr. Herdsires] [Kidding Schedule] [For Sale]
Woest-Hoeve MC Spittlebug
I would like to thank Sonia Thyssen for nominating this
AND THEY SAY……..Third time is a charm! I figure by the Fall of 2017 we will know whether starting up a Nubian herd for the third time is truly a charm. God has certainly put many obstacles in our course over the years. My Mother suffering a stroke and my being responsible for her care for a period of three to four months resulted in the dispersal of our first herd as I was needed 24/7 and did not feel that I could take care of our herd in the manner which they deserved. My Mother left us in October 2015 and is now in her Heavenly home. Our second dispersal came this past spring, 2016, when I ended up having knee replacement surgery this past spring and wrist surgery this fall. After recovering very nicely from both we are going to give it a final try knowing that our time will be limited in years. The only comment I can make is these Nubians sure are addictive! Our goal is to keep a small but very nice quality herd.
Yes, we do have a wonderful start to our new herd with bringing home the 2016 ADGA Spotlight Sale doe, Woest-Hoeve M C Spittlebug and are so thankful to Sonia Thyssen for nominating this beautiful doeling. AND she already has her Junior Champion status. We will be adding two more does to our new herd this December 2016 and the other new additions will come next spring.
One of the most enjoyable parts in attending shows is the many friends we have made over the years and the new ones we make. It is also a good feeling to be able to help and answer questions from new breeders. I tell them it is a continuous learning process, that there will always be things to learn and share with fellow breeders.
Our new herd will retain CAE negative status as well as being free of abscesses. We take the kids from their dams at birth and raise them on heat treated colostrum and pasteurized milk even though our CAE status is negative. Kids are normally weaned at around three months of age and the use of Baycox (toltrazuril) is used in the prevention of coccidiosis. We find it is one of the easiest methods to use, but perhaps not the least expensive way to go once they get some size on them. The kids are also vaccinated for tetanus and enterotoxaemia, dewormed at one to two months of age, and our mature animals vaccinated annually for tetanus and enterotoxaemia. We also vaccinate our dry yearlings and mature does with Lysigin and J-Vac to help in controlling mastitis.
TERMS OF SALE: If a kid is reserved prior to birth, the price is as stated on the “Kidding Schedule” page. However, we do reserve the right to modify pricing once the kids are born if they are not preordered prior to birth. We would appreciate a $100 deposit for bucklings and a $50 deposit for doelings ordered. Balance due on kids must be paid in full before shipped or picked up. We prefer to place kids in their new homes by 4-6 weeks of age, but are willing to make arrangements to hold a kid longer if necessary. Orders are accepted on a first requested basis. We would suggest a 1st and 2nd choice for better assurance of getting that kid you want. There will be no refunds on cancelled orders. However, if we cannot fill your order or the kid does not meet our specifications, your deposit will be refunded or held until next year, whichever you choose. All health papers and shipping expenses are the responsibility of the buyer. We do reserve the right to retain any animal on our sales list.
Thanks to all who have purchased animals from us in years past and to those who were fortunate to purchase animals when we dispersed our herd this past spring. We hope that they have become an important part of your herd. Nearly everyone who purchased animals from us this spring showed them and kept us informed as to how they were doing which I appreciated immensely. We certainly look forward to seeing all of our friends at the shows in 2017.
