Kelly Hulme

PRESIDENT

Kelly has had a dream to breed goats and have her very own farm for about 12yrs now and through hard work and setting goals her and her lovely husband Colin have finally made that dream come true.  In 2014 they made the move to the beautiful Riverina Region of NSW.  She's now building up her herd and eagerly trying to convert all of the sheep farmers she's surrounded by.  Kelly is always on the look-out for quality stock and her new goal is to be a respected Australian Miniature Goat breeder and do her best to improve the breed in a respectful and responsible way.

Sarah Spinaze

VICE-PRESIDENT & REGISTRAR

Sarah runs Whispering Plains Miniature Goat Stud in NSW.   Sarah has wanted goats for years, dreaming and looking at all the stud websites, the photos and reading all kinds of information about them; she was obsessed before she even purchased a single goat. Sarah's mother in law bought a property out of town about 5 years ago, so it presented Sarah with a golden opportunity.   Sarah showed her a photo of a baby goat for sale and now like most who purchase these amazing animals, the love affair continues.

Sarah is available to assist all our NSW members and is qualified to height your animals.

Kerry Kowald

COMMITTEE

Kerry along with husband Roger and 7 kids run Angus River Stud in Mount Torrens in the the Adelaide Hills SA . After travelling Australia on a converted bus in 2015 we came home to the plan of setting up a mini farm to keep me busy. Along with several dogs , sheep, beef cows , a variety of chickens and ducks and a dairy, we have now added our beloved goats and currently breed to improve our girls conformation and height. Goats have such loving souls that they will become your best friend very easily.

Esther Luxford-Matthews

COMMITTEE

& NEWSLETTER EDITOR

Esther is located in Briagolong Vic. Owner operator of ELM Horsemanship & Freestone Park - Esther has been a passionate horsewoman her entire life. Sustaining a brain injury in early 2017 quickly brought life as it was to a standstill. Going from a active, busy & challenging lifestyle to a quiet slow moving recovery journey not being able to get in a paddock with a horse brought about change. Trying to find joy was proving challenging – enter the mini goat. I laughed more in my first week of being a goat owner than I had in 2 months. The AMG quickly became a passion and I am the proud owner of a herd of does that bring me joy and laughter every day. Aiming to become involved in Showing and Breeding in the near future & always promoting the incredible little animals that mini goats are.
