    We run an equine rescue and, over the years, have taken in a few dozen goat rescues. We currently have eight goats, including two kids from a December rescue doe. The kids are now four months old and perfectly healthy. Just with an odd quirk: their horns haven't grown. We've had adult polled...

    I know my amateur evaluation and would like some more experienced judges to weigh in. Dam is heterozygous polled and sire, horned. Can you tell by these photos? The first two are the same buckling (and I'm now seeing how bad this little buckling's head shot is, I can retake if necessary). #2...

    I have a polled doe in milk that is 7/8 Nubian and 1/8 Nigerian dwarf. She isn't registered and I'm wanting to sell her but I have no idea how much to ask. Her milk is excellent with no goaty taste, she is such a good mom, and very healthy. She has tested negative for CL, CAE, and Johnes. She is...

    I have two nubian bucklings that are two weeks old and the dam is polled. One of them is definitely polled, but I'm not sure about the other one. He doesn't have any swirls and the skin on the little bumps moves, but barely. The bumps on the confirmed polled one are larger and the skin is easier...

    Hi everyone, So I know the concensus among most goat breeders is breeding polled to polled is bad because of the increased risk of hermaphrodism. I've had 2 horned hermies since I started raising goats 5 years ago (one I purchased and the other was born here) so I feel like I've had unusually...

    OK...So I've never had a polled goat until this year. We leased a polled, blue-eyed buck and bred him to three of my does. The mini LaManchas he sired got the blue eyes. The female mini Munchie developed horn buds and we disbudded her. I expected to disbud her brother, but when we shaved his...

    I am wondering a couple things about breeding for polled. I just brought home my first polled ND doeling. Her dam was homozygous for polled, her sire horned, so she is Pp.I have a polled buck in mind to lease for an early spring breeding next year. He is also Pp. So the AGS website says they...

    I have a five year old Oberhasli doe that I acquired a few months ago. We have little history on her. I am in the process of registering her with IDGR, but needed to know if she was polled or horned. It looks like one side is flat and the other side has a little bump like a "horn bud". The...
