    74A249FF-D6F8-4946-B078-0009D9B2FAB6.jpeg So confused, please tell me if this is normal for an alpine wether, 1 year old. Look at his picture from when we got him last October. Now we shaved him for an upcoming 4-H fun show... those spots?!?

    We are so shocked and confused if this is normal.

    That looks like his skin. That is normal.

    Thanks, when it grows back, do you think it will show spots?

    Wow, I’ve never seen that before! He must actually be a pied chamoise. If you’re on Facebook, there is a group called Dairy Goat Pedigree Chat where you could post this and see if anyone else has had a goat like this.

    Anyone, yeah, it’s just his color and nothing to worry about.
