I picked this boy up at auction - I think he's a kiko, any opinions?
I have 2 does with those semi lop like he has. The one is a togg Boer and the other is a.....get ready lol,......a Nubian alpine very little Boer and the owner swears a little pigmy.I thought his ears were way to small to be Nubian...my Nubian crosses still have a "floppy" ear that is larger and rounded on the end, his are "firm," small and pointed. They also seem to be set lower on the head than the dairy breeds that I am used to.
He does have a Roman profile though! I thought about that when I was looking him over at the auction, as I knew Roman noses were not the ideal for Kiko's, but on the other hand, I've seen pics of Kiko's that look like they were pretty straight faced...
He may be, as suggested, a complete mutt, which would account for his mixed features, and would explain why he doesn't quite show traits of the half-and-half crosses that I am used to.
And yes, "Sinatra," has beautiful blue eyes!
There are Boers with blue eyes. It's a DQ by the breed standardOh he is AWESOME.!!!
I ADORE his eyes..!!!
I don't think I have ever seen a standard-sized goat with blue eyes before.???
Is that normal? I was told by someone only ND's had blue eyes.!!!
But WOW he is GORGEOUS.!!!!
Congratulations to the BOTH of you.!!!
Looks like you got yourself a really nice stud.!!!
And he lucked out NOT going into someone's freezer.!!!
So a BIG Yay for the both of you.!!!
(I have a feeling if there was a standard-sized doe born with blue eyes people would be jumping all over to get her! LOL)
