HISTORY OF THE LONGMAN NUBIAN HERD
Part 1

by Betty Longman

bar


It has been almost a lifelong association with Nubians for Betty who lost her mother when she was four years old. She was raised by her grandparents who had Nubians because her grandfather had asthma and heart trouble. The Nubians were selected because they had the richest and best flavored milk, and were big and strong and beautiful.

As the years passed, and Betty married and had her family (Sherry being the first to arrive), living in residential areas did not leave a spot for the goats! Never forgetting those loving Nubians, the decision was made to move to the country so animals could again be part of their lives.

It was 1968 -- Sherry wanted to start a dairy goat FFA Project -- you guessed it! Here came the Nubians, only this time it was the beginning of a Registered Purebred herd!

In 1970 the foundation herd sire became a Permanent Champion as a 2 yr. old, and the same year his first 3 yearling milkers made their stars on a 1 day test.

That buck's name was GCH++B LONGMAN'S BARNABY BUCK.

The next additiion to the herd was from the Los Vientos herd: STARS AND BARS TARA BELLE who was also a beautiful Champion, and she was accompanied by several of her herdmates which included 4 of her milking daughters and a granddaughter.

All did extremely well at shows and all made their *M on official test. BARNABY BUCK and these does were the beginning of LONGMAN'S NUBIANS.

In 1973-1974 three more does and two bucks entering the herd also proved to be highly influential in laying its foundation. They were GCH JARL'S CANDY who was purchased as a yearling milker and became a GCH at her first 3 shows as a 2 yr. old:
