|Twin Willows Farm Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats Logansport Indiana||
Hello all you lovely people! Our kidding season started at Christmas, and we are still going! So far we have had over 30 babies born this season and we still have SEVEN does left to kid. Most babies that were born are either retained or sold but we have MORE COMING! I'm also going to letting go of a couple senior does after they kid, so if you are interested, please contact me. My bestie, Bonnie, also has some doelings and wethers available NOW at our sister farm, Bonniegirl Farm in Chesterton, so if you are interested in those, please contact me and I'll give your her contact info. All animals on her farm are Twin Willows breedings.
We have seven wethers available. $150 each
They will be ready in early July. Get your deposits in! They will go fast!

Update 2/18 At any time in the future, should you decide to sell a breeding animal (buck or doe) that you have purchased from Twin Willows, we ask for first right of refusal on the animal being sold. This means that we kindly ask you to tell us first before offering for sale to another person, so that we have the option to purchase the animal and bring him/her back into our herd.
You can find the full text of our Sales and Reservation Policy at www.twinwillowsfarm.net/sales-policy.html
It has taken me quite awhile to make this official post. I needed time to process, and it just hurt too much to talk about. It still hurts so badly I get choked up just thinking about it.
I am still confused as to what exactly went wrong, but the fact remains that I have lost my first doe due to kidding complications. On January 4th, GCH J-Nels DH L'il Red went into labor and delivered triplets (1D, 2B) that were all stillborn. In the process of passing her deceased kids, Red suffered a tear in her uterus, and she passed away at 2:37 am the following morning on January 5th. Red was not here for very long. I only bought her back in September 17, and the loss for our herd is unimaginable, made even worse by the fact that her sweet, perfect babies were all stillborn.
Rest in Peace GCH J-Nels DH L'il Red
You will always be truly missed.
Twin Willows J Dido kidded with two blue eyed bucks sired by Twin Willows J Ecgberht on Feb 26th. Their names are Feliz Navidad and Frankincense.
Twin Willows CF Etta kidded with 1 buck and 2 does, sired by Twin Willows J Ecgberht on December 26th. The bucks name is Festivus, and the little girls are Figgy Puddin and Falalalalala.
We are on baby watch this week. L'il Red will kid anytime now, and Dido and Etta are due on the 29th. We should have babies soon! Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas from all of us at Twin Willows!

Last Friday, I visited Coop Dreams to tape a Season 4 episode, check on the goats, castrate some bucks and bring home two surprises to the farm. Introducing...Virgil Earp and Morgan Earp. These two adorable bucks will be used to continue our breeding goals here at Twin Willows. I intend to have their babies on the ground next spring! To learn more about them, visit the buck page. To learn more about our involvement with the reality TV show, Coop Dreams, navigate to our Coop Dreams page on the sidebar.
We are so proud to announce the return of Twin Willows TIO Apple Blossom 2*M. She has been in Florida the past couple of years and we are so ecstatic to have her back home to live with her dam, Trixie, her sister, Annie, and her daughter, Diva.
Also coming soon...GCH J-Nels DH Li'l Red 2*M VEEV90 will be coming to live at Twin Willows! Red is the daughter of GCH Algedi Farm DJ Drops of Honey *B and SGCH/MCH J-Nels ER Dumplin 1*M EEEV90. She is exposed to CH J-Nels LY Zoolander VEE89 for Christmas babies!
Over the past several months, I have been working on developing a new website that will help others decide if they would like to raise goats, and if so, how to care for them once they welcome them home.
I am pleased to announce the launch of The Goat Chick. I hope that you find it interesting and helpful.
