hey y’all! i have a one year old registered doeling that was born on my farm and i’m not sure what her coloring is. she is a purebred Nigerian Dwarf doe.

i was looking on the ADGA color website


and couldn't find her coloring.

I'd go with red gold. Does she have blue eyes? If so I'd include that in the description.

I know it is difficult coming up with a clear, concise, short description and ADGA won't accept "very pretty girl". Sigh.

She doesn't appear to have any of the features of the Chamoisee, which would give you room from bay to dark mahogany, and she doesn't appear to have any random markings, beyond her white poll so I think you are whittled down to the gold category which includes a red gold.

If she were mine I'd go with red gold with white poll and blue eyes.

is this considered a moonspot or is it just part of her coloring.


i know you guys are heading towards red gold, she also has white tip tailed, white on her head, black legs, blue eyes, grayish(like that moonspot thing) lines on her face as well.
