Default Saanen/Nubian cross picyures?

I bred my Saanen doe to a Nubian buck. Does anyone have this cross? How are they?

More important....can anyone post some pictures of this cross if they have it? I am curious to see what I might get.

Thanks

Funny that you should post this because I am having a hard time finding an alpine or saanen locally to breed my girls to. Nubians are more commen so I may end up using a nubian. I think you may end up with airplane ears which I admit am not fond of.

Thanks for the pictures!

First two look like saanens with long ears! The kids are soo cute!

I wonder what kind of horns they will have? The buck looked like he had small one, maybe a dishorning that didn't work? My does have thier long normal horns. I can hardly wait to see if I get any color!

Here is Pixie, my "Snubian." I sadly lost her to bloat while she was at the buck's to be bred.

I have a Saanen doe bred to a Nubian buck as well.. She's due in June. Not really a fan of airplane ears myself.. So I guess we'll see. Lol.

Oh, sorry you lost her Epona. She is beautiful. How old was she? She looks like she would have had saanen horns.
