Aerial view of Happy Tailz Farm. You see the house, garage, barn #1, buck house, it is that small red building, and then barn #2. I'm so very lucky to have our very own little piece of heaven here on earth!

Hi! Welcome to the site of Happy Tailz Farm. Go grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit down, relax, take your shoes off, prop up your feet and take a look around. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us. Please take a moment to sign our guest book . We would love to hear from you.
First off I would like to tell you a little about ourselves. Happy Tailz Farm is home to my husband Ron, our two children, 2 cats, 4 dogs, 5 hens, a herd of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats and myself, Aletha. We all live together on an 11 acre farm in Mayville, Michigan. We have had goats since 1996 but we actively got into the Nigerian Dwarf breed exclusively in 1998. We began showing our Nigerians in May of 1999 in Lancaster, Ohio and went on to catch 3 more shows in Michigan that year. From that time on, we have been bitten by the show bug ever since. We hope to see you at some of the shows and if you do, please take a minute and stop by and say Hello! We would be more than happy to talk goats with you! One of my favorite past times!
Due to my husband suffering a stroke in 07, we no longer show our beautiful nigerians, its just too hard on him.
Our goats are registered in AGS, NDGA and ADGA
We tested for
TB, CAE (Caprine
Arthritis Encephalitis) with negative results as of 7/16/07.
We also did random Johnes and
CL testing at the time also with negative results.. We also make sure
we test every new addition
and all goats that have left the farm to attend shows. We have never had any CL (Caseous Lymphadenitis)
abscesses on our farm. In April of 2010 we did a whole herd testing
for CL; again with negative results. Our goal
is to do CAE testing within the next year sometime when finances permit.. Here at Happy
Tailz Farm all of our goats are up to date on vaccinations, wormings and are
disbudded at an early age. We take pride in our little dairy goats and do all
that we can to ensure good health, temperament, conformation and milk
production. We try and be
present at all births so that the kids can be pulled at birth and bottle raised
on heat treated colostrum and pasteurized goats milk. We do this as a disease
preventive measure and also, because we believe that bottle raised kids make
friendlier goats. All goats are given fresh water each and every day. I know
many are thinking that this is something that really doesn't even need to be
said but there are many people out there who still think goats will eat or drink
anything we put in front of them.. NOT SO! Goats are very picky about what they
take in. Fresh water is a must both for not just general health but also
to make that wonderful milk. Our does are fed clean, sweet smelling, mold
free alfalfa and/or alfalfa/grass hay, 2nd or 3rd cut if we can get it.
The bucks are fed grass hay with a little bit of alfalfa in it. When does
freshen they are given top quality grain twice a day at each milking. All
goats are given free choice baking soda and free choice minerals.
So, if you are looking for a Nigerian to show, for 4-H, or just to love, maybe we can help you put a little "happiness" in your barn today with a Happy Tailz Nigerian!
