I got some goats this summer and I haven't been able to figure out what breed they are.
White one is the grandma
Black one is the daughter/mom
Little black & white one is the brother, he has quite long hair.
Little black & brown one is the sister

Hopefully the goat experts will chime in. My guess is they are mixed breeds. That black and white mama goat has a look of Boer to her head.
Yes, they are definitely mixed.
Supposedly grandma is a certain breed (previous owner couldn't remember, but I can't find breeds she completely matches.

If you think the grandmother is pure, then maybe Saanen? But only because she is white. I don’t know if she matches purebred Saanens. She is likely a mix, and they just told you one of the breeds she is mixed with and left it at that.

In any case, they look like a nice herd of goats!

White like a Saanen, but ears are wrong.

Also, way too much hair for a Saanen.
