    Hello I have goats now for the first time, since I was a teenager . When we bought them the lady said the buck was a Nigerian Dwarf .:idunnoAnd recently told DW he was a Boar .That was after we showed her pictures of the kids he sired . I haven't a clue, when I was young a goat was a goat .worth ten to fifteen dollars . So the same lady told me the feed had worming meds in it . Ok so as dumb as I am I know that ain't right :lol: Anyway here's a picture of Chief the best one I have right now . Guesses ??? and since every body loves babies baby goat 4.png baby goat9.png Image05312017183748.jpg

    Gosh, I see possible Saanen, Alpine, Maybe some Nigie in the baby... I can tell you it's not Lamancha and I don' see any Nubian in there. I don' really see any Boer either... :idunnoHope some of the other more experienced folks will jump in. They look good whatever breed they are...:)

    The last picture is your buck?
    He does look like a Nigerian to me.
    The doe in the first picture looks like a cross.
    The airplane ears would indicate some Nubian or Boer in the mix maybe with a Nigerian if she is smaller in size.

    Thank you any information helps .Yes the last picture is the buck and they are not big goats . You know how it is .A friend of DW's selling her house and needed to sell her goats. We had room .I realize I have to learn a lot about what breeds are around now compared to when I was a kid . And the friend really don't know much about goats . I don't think . Googeling pictures I haven't been able to find many good Nigerian buck pictures .I had been thinking about goats and these came along so yep both feet right in there :lol:

    Can definitely say that buck is not a Boer, that's for sure.

    Yep, he looks like mini silky. They are a cross of long haired Nigerian and TN fainting goat. They don't all faint, mine don't.
