WELCOME TO..........

APPLE ROAD NUBIANS 2013

   *1st PLACE BREEDERS HERD 2011/ EXPO QUEBEC

 

             OUR FARM IS LOCATED IN WAKEFIELD, QUEBEC, AMONGST THE BEAUTIFUL GATINEAU HILLS,

JUST 35 MINUTES NORTH OF OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA’S CAPITAL.

          MYSELF, WIEBKE (PRONOUNCED "VEEPKA"), MY HUSBAND SHAYNE & 4 CHILDREN (TESSA, KIEFER, MIEKA & SHADIE) HAVE ALWAYS HAD  GOATS ON OUR FARM,  WHEN  WE DECIDED TO GO REGISTERED, THERE WAS NO QUESTION AS TO WHAT BREED OF GOAT WE WOULD DEVOTE OUR TIME TO.

        MY LOVE OF GOATS STARTED WITH THE FIRST GOAT THAT I BOUGHT AS A TEENAGER FOR $50. HER NAME WAS TESSIE, SHE WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART.

                  I WILL NEVER FORGET THE EXCITEMENT I FELT WHEN I SET MY EYES ON THE FIRST  NUBIAN  HERD, “GATINEAU VALLEY NUBIANS”. THAT EXCITEMENT AND LOVE FOR THE NUBIAN GOAT HAS YET TO WEAR OFF.

         WE LOVE THE AFFECTION A NUBIAN OFFERS,  WE ALSO FIND THEM TO BE A LITTLE MORE GROUNDED , THEY DON’T LOOK AT A  FENCE AS A CHALLENGE, THEY SEE IT AS A BARRIER.

         WE CHOSE OUR BREEDING STOCK FROM HONEST, REPUTABLE BREEDERS WITH HEALTHY HERDS , EXCELLENT MILK PRODUCTION AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

        WE CHOOSE A SELECT FEW OF THE LARGER SHOWS TO EXHIBIT OUR NUBIANS AT EACH SUMMER.

         OUR PREFERENCE IN A NUBIAN IS A TALL, WELL BALANCED, AGILE GOAT WHO FLOATS ON THE MOVE. PLUS, OUR NUBIANS MUST EXCELL IN THE MILK DEPARTMENT.

        OF COURSE WE CAN’T FORGET THE MOST OBVIOUS PHYSICAL DISTINCTION BETWEEN NUBIANS AND OTHER GOAT BREEDS,THE BEAUTIFUL LONG PENDULOUS EARS AND ROMAN NOSE THAT WE LOVE SO MUCH!

                THE HIGH BUTTER FAT CONTENT IN A NUBIANS MILK IS A BONUS WHEN GOAT CHEESES ARE ON THE “TO DO” LIST.

       WE TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BREEDING NUBIANS VERY SERIOUSLY AND AIM FOR THE BEST IN MILK, GENETIC HEALTH, CONFORMATION AND LONGEVITY.

       WE HAVE MET SO MANY FELLOW BREEDERS ( OF ALL GOAT BREEDS) WHO HAVE ADVISED AND INSPIRED US, WE HOPE WE CAN PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS IN THE “GOAT WORLD”
