Sinai Thunder
nigerian dwarf goats




Welcome to Sinai Thunder, home of ADGA, NDGA, and AGS registered Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats. I'm very honored that you're spending a few minutes of your time here.

First and foremost, it is a privilege to be able to share with you the joys we've had with our goats and more importantly, to give the Lord all the Glory for making everything possible.

We all live on a 10 acre farm surrounded by a wide creek and nestled amongst bluffs, woods, and meadows. It is home to approximately 25 goats, chickens, dogs, cats, and family. We chose Nigerians because they are so friendly and easy to handle--even for the grandkids. In spite of their small size, they produce lots of creamy milk which makes the most delicious cheese, yogurt, Kefir, and nutritious milk.

Our goal is to raise goats whose confirmation and dairy production are excellent. One of the best goat books I have, called "The Illustrated Standard of the Dairy Goat" by Nancy Lee Owen, states in the Introduction, "There is no separate 'show' or 'milk' type". When the judging guides are used accurately, the best 'show' type is the best 'milk' type. For correct confirmation is the ideal combination of dairiyness and strength. Correct conformation enables a doe to produce offspring and large quantities of milk, more economically, with less strain, for a longer time."

Being raised in Kentucky--and growing up with the extremely high standards of the Thoroughbred Industry, we are dedicated to provide the best of feed, etc. All of the goats have access to good pasture with plenty of forage, as well as given high quality local mixed-grass and/or Alfalfa hay. In addition, they are fed ADM Alliance Nutrition Feed, Chaffhaye, and always have loose minerals as well as organic Thorvin Kelp available at all times. Our herd is tested on an annual basis (and found Negative) for CL, CAE, and Johnes.

Our farm's name came from Psalms 81:7--"You cried to Me and I saved you; I answered you from Mt Sinai, where the thunder hides." The King James says, "in the secret place of thunder" and both translations really intrigued me. It is interesting to note when 'thunder' is mentioned in the scriptures, some people said it was "noise of a storm" they heard--but others recognized it as the voice of God speaking. In the same way, our foundational verse (on the home page), many were frightened at sound and sight of God's Presence, however "that" was the very thing that caused Moses to draw near. God's Voice is what our farm is named after. His Presence and His is what we live for.
