My name is Charity Doornbos and I am a Soaper and Goat Owner. We first purchased goats in 2008 and soon after I started making soap. From 2008-2014, our goats had been mainly for pets and for milk for my soap business. I sell my Happy Goat soaps and products in local stores, on-line (via Etsy), craft shows and farm markets.
In 2015 I made a small adjustment to my business. I began to attend less soap sales and to spend more time working toward breeding and registering quality Mini Alpine dairy goats. I also taught myself to sew recently, so I hope to spend more time sewing plush goats. Check them out in the Happy Goat etsy shop(:
I am switching this Happy Goat website from a "soap" page, to include more info about our "farm" and goats. In the spring of 2015, I began to register my mini's and that fall I bred my f1 mini alpine buck to one of our f1 mini alpine does. (-: We were blessed with triplet's from this first time freshener! She was a 3 year old doe and is a great mom! We will be keeping her 2 doelings. The little buckling will be going to a home nearby as a pet. All 3 had amazing color!
How did I get started in mini-alpines? In 2008 our first goats were Alpine. After breeding to a neighbors Alpine or Toggenburg buck for a couple years-I decided to purchase a black and white spotted Nigerian buck. (I'm partial to the black and white colorings) For 3 years I bred my registered Alpine Doe (black and white) to the registered Nigerian Buck (black and white). I have now retired the Alpine doe and the Nigerian Dwarf buck.
My goal as I continue to move forward with breeding Mini-Alpine is to produce-Quality, Medium Sized Dairy Goats with Color for your Backyard needs(-:
