Bred for Home Milking,Temperament, and Conformation
OK Doe K Dairy Goats
Bred for Therapy, Show, and Milk for the Urban Homestead or Hobby Farm
On our journey through Autism Spectrum Disorder, we discovered Nigerian Dwarf Goats. These loveable, docile creatures have been a faithful companion and playmate for our son. (Their favorite game is "Billy Goats Gruff.") He cares for them daily and we show them at the local and tri-state level. Showing has allowed our son to learn to interact socially while meeting some of the best people around. Our doe, Emmy, is the best friend our son could have asked for!
All of our goats test negative for CAE, CL, and Johnes annually through one of the following labs: Washington Labs, College Station, and Biotracking. They are vaccinated annually, and have regular vet check ups for continued good health. They are triple registered with ADGA, AGS, and NDGA.
Our primary purpose is to have gentle animals our young son can easily control without fear. Our goats have a mild temperament to make good friends for the people in their lives. From an early age they are played with and handled on a daily basis. Our secondary, but equally important goal, is to breed these loving creatures for conformation qualities reflected on show scorecards and milk production while maintaining their miniature size. As our son has learned, showing is a lot more fun when you get a ribbon!
Welcome to OK Doe K Goats.
OK Doe K came about because our roots are from Oklahoma, girl goats are called Does, and the phrase means everything is going to be alright. When a family member is on the autism spectrum, it is a good thing to remember everyone and everything is okey-dokey just the way God planned it!
