HISTORY OF THE LONGMAN NUBIAN HERD
by Betty Longman
VOLCANIC ACRES SILVER and her son ++*B VOLCANIC ACRES
BARNABY, TARA BELLE, EASTER LILY and her son (KING
ARTHUR), SILVER and her son (SOLOMON), CANDY and her son
(++*B LONGMAN'S ARTHUR AMBASSADOR) are still in our
current pedigrees through the addition of bucks from other
herds. We had such a good beginning that we do not want to
ever lose these genetic "gold mines".
++*B LONGMAN'S NICOLE'S CHIEF (who was a combination of all
our foundation lines) was very influential in our breedings.
His daughters are the dams of many of the does in our herd -
his last two daughters died in 1998 at 12 yrs. old.
In 1993 we brought in +*B KASTDEMUR'S MPA
TRADEMARK and in 1995 we brought in +*B KASTDEMUR'S
ROMEO. These two bucks have had a tremendous impact
on the herd! They have maintained all the positive points in
our breedings and have strengthened points when needed! They
are proving themselves to be just the perfect mates for our
does! We will have others to add to this history as soon as
they have been proven!
Back to Longman's History
Through the years, the desire was there to improve the
Nubian Breed; always believing that there was no such thing
as a "perfect goat" and knowing that improvement could be
obtained by breeding to strengthen any weakness. The herd
never stopped its efforts and saw positive things as each
year passed! We saw that the doe lines had a great impact on
our breedings, that some does are so prepotent that all
their offspring were exceptional. Another little saying we
have here is "It takes two to tango".
