In early October 2015, I noticed an ad for some polled Nigerian Dwarf doelings. On October 14, 2015, we brought home Amberle (and her full sister Eretria).
Amberle is an extremely pretty, tri-coloured Nigerian Dwarf doe. She is very sweet, and loves to be held (especially when we pick her up to get to the best hay at the top of the manger, where everyone else can’t reach!). She is quiet and playful, and REALLY enjoys her food!
Amberle can seem a little timid, especially around the larger does, but when it comes to food, she will sneak her way in to get every last crumb (even licking the bowls clean). She will certainly stand up to anyone (especially her sister) when it comes to food!
Amberle is an unregistered Nigerian Dwarf. Amberle is polled, has blue eyes, and also has the cutest wattles.
Amberle’s dam is a black and tan Sundgau, named Gem, with a registered dam (her pedigree is at Thistle Creek RJ Ruby Tuesday), and unregistered sire. Amberle’s sire is a registered Nigerian Dwarf goat. His pedigree is available at Taylorside’s Benson.
Amberle was named after the princess in the Shannara series of books by Terry Brooks, which have always been Jeff’s favourite books and author. It was just recently made into a TV series (which of course made Jeff extremely happy)!
