I have to put my hobby/lifestyle on hold for a bit... Thank you to everyone that I've met on my journey! It's been a pleasure and I've enjoyed staying in contact with a lot of you. I've been blessed to find a lot of wonderful homes for my animals. I anxiously await the day I have goats again; they are fun to have around and an important role in a self sufficient lifestyle that my family is working towards.
Home of Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats
As of right now my family and I just have a 'backyard farm' and we anxiously await the day we have a farm. Qualey 'Farm' is located in Bonney Lake, WA and is the home of my husband Paul, myself and our three children Ashlynn, Clayton and Allie. Three registered Nigerian Dwarfs, chickens and our dog Sydney.
We are very fortunate to have such quality animals. Getting up to care for them each morning is the perfect way to start a day!
Some areas I'd still like to get into are goat cheese (hard cheese) & beekeeping. I'd like to offer goat soap, honey, duck/ chicken eggs, milk, produce and animals for sale. I'm on my way to being self sufficient... slowly but surely. Farm life is my passion. We also have a horse, Sierra, who is a registered sorrel quarter horse. She's 5 years old and she has such a great disposition. I enjoy every minute I spend with her!

*All of my goats come from C.A.E. negative herds and I will begin testing annually very soon!

The Nigerian Dwarf is a miniature breed of dairy goat originating in West Africa and developed in the United States. The balanced proportions of the Nigerian Dwarf give it the appearance of the larger breeds of dairy goats, but does stand no more than 22.5" (57cm) and bucks no more than 23.5" (60cm). Any color or combination of colors is acceptable. The medium length ears are erect and alert. The face is either straight or dished, and the hair is short and fine.
