    I don't know if that (the title) was very good English.

    But anyway, I'd love to here your opinion on this Mini-Nubian doeling! She was born March 12. Her dam and I think her sire as well were show goats. Her sire jumped the fence and bred her dam at a very young age (I think she was just 3-5 months old). So she was kind of an 'accident'. :(
    Hildy definitely takes after the Nigerian side and doesn't have a very good Roman nose and neither does she have great Nubian ears, but I've heard that 1st generation Mini-Nubians are usually like that.

    She isn't really standing on even ground but these were really the only pictures I could get of her before she came to me wanting to be rubbed and petted.

    Thanks in advance!

    I just wanted to say she is a doll! And those ears! Oh my! What wonderful ears they are. But anyway, I can't critique because I have no clue what I am looking for, I just know she's lovely.
