On The Cover
      “Denning Hill Michi Kasu” (Michi Kasu means “Grasses along the path”) is a purebred Nigerian Dwarf doe, born at Old Mountain Farm, Maine. Her dam was an OMF doe that was sold as a kid, then sent back for breeding and kidding. Even though she doesn’t carry the OMF herd name, she has lived most her life with owner Cheryle Moore-Smith and represents the exquisite type of productive Nigerians Smith likes to breed at OMF. Smith describes Michi Kasu as having the sweetest personality of any doe she has ever known. For more pictures of beautiful Nigerians visit the Old Mountain Farm website at www.oldmountainfarm.com.
