-A bit about our herd-
Welcome to our little home on the web. Nothing fancy or flashy. You won't find pictures of freshly shaved does - in show poses- or detailed milk records. That's just not what most of our buyers are interested in. They want to see pictures of the herd, just being goats. My name is Susie Price, along with my daughter Jessica & son Chris .. we raise and care for a barn full of characters (under the herd name of AGES AGO ACRES) The goats are our love & our lives, but not our livelihood. We sell some kids, make a little cheese, spend a lot of time caring for everyone...The goats just enjoy being goats. In the morning it's milking & breakfast. The does are then let out to spend their days browsing 20 acres, of meadows & woods. Dinnertime finds them safely back in the doe barn
...it's a simple life, but a happy life.
I raise the type of Nubians that appeal to ME. I like large, healthy, friendly does. I like my girls to look *dairy* but still have some size to them. ( I test annually for CAE. The entire herd is also CL free.. the entire herd's G6S status is known.. via testing or parentage) I like pretty does. Sound, honest does. Does who fill my heart & my milk pail. (can't understand, who would WANT to milk an ugly goat? LOL) I like long-lived gals. Gals who produce big healthy kids...year after year. (we attend all births. Rarely will one of the girls need help, but we are always there with them). We pull & bottle feed most of the kids, but I do on occasion allow a mom to dam raise. I don't want my herd to ever lose their mothering abilities. Many people who buy doelings from us, want those doelings to grow up to be good moms. Moms who can & will raise their own kids. I like bucks who are BIG, but gentle & loving. Easy to handle (even in rut) Kids who are sweet & outgoing. Kids that grow off well. I want a Nubian that looks like a Nubian. Nice roman noses & longggg ears are a must. I want good body capacity. Straight, strong legs and tight feet..... and they HAVE to milk. I also want them, to WANT to milk. I don't want a doe I have to fight on the milk stand. (I think a doe raised with gentle hands, is a doe that will take quickly to the milk stand, when she freshens) I want does to have a strong will to milk. A doe that's hard to dry off. Does with long lactations. Nice, well attached udders that will stand up to a lot of milk. Teats sized right for hand milking.
My herd consists of bloodlines that produce the type of Nubian that I like. I've carefully... over the years, bought individuals that blend well with each other and give me the type of Nubian kids I love. Those kids, now all grown up are giving me grandkids & great-grandkids that are the type of doelings, that make me happy... I hope they will make some of you happy too! Our pages are filled with just snapshots of the herd. Some are of the girls, in their work clothes. There are pictures of leggy teens.. happy, silly kids.. big, stinky men.. soon-to-be stinky little men. Goats, just being goats. Us, just being goat gals.
(ALL of our Nubians are ADGA reg. PUREBRED Nubians. Clicking on a picture on the DOE & BUCK pages, will take you to that goat's ADGA pedigree. We strive to keep our prices reasonable & affordable for the folks who make up most of our customer base... people who are looking for that OLD STYLE Nubian, that they remember from years ago. 4H'ers wanting to show, homesteaders, hobby farmers, moms who want sweet, fresh milk for their families. New to the country life? New to goats? Great! (I enjoy helping new people learn) Most of our buyers are Earthy, common folk...like ourselves. Take a look around.
